Conceptual models of the climate : 2001 program of studies in geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003)
In 2001, the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Summer Study Program grappled with Conceptual Models of the Climate. Eli Tziperman (Weizman Institute), Paola Cessi (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) and Ray Pierre- Humbert ...
Oceanic lithosphere magnetization : marine magnetic investigations of crustal accretion and tectonic processes in mid-ocean ridge environments
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
The origin of symmetric alternating magnetic polarity stripes on the seafloor is investigated in two marine environments; along the ridge axis of the fast spreading East Pacific Rise (EPR) (9º 25’-9º 55’N) and at Kane ...
The Subduction experiment : mooring field program and data summary ; Sub 1 June 1991-February 1992 ; Sub 2 February 1992-October 1992 ; Sub 3 October 1992-June 1993
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-06)
An array of five surface moorings carrying meteorological and oceanographic instrumentation was deployed for a period of two years beginning in June 1991 as part of an Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded Subduction ...
The West Falmouth oil spill
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-04)
A spill of 650,000 to 700,000 1iters of #2 fuel oil in Buzzards Bay, Mass., USA, on September 16, 1969, has severely polluted the coastal waters, the marshes, the offshore sediments and the shell fish resources of Falmouth ...
Warm water pathways in the northeastern North Atlantic ACCE RAFOS float data report November 1996 - November 1999
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-11)
This is the final data report of all acoustically tracked RAFOS float data collected by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 1996-1999 during the Atlantic Climate Change Experiment (ACCE). The RAFOS float component ...
The Black Sea general circulation and climatic temperature and salinity fields
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
The Black Sea is a nearly enclosed ocean basin, exhibiting many features common with larger ocean basins. Lacking an open boundary and having a limited exchange with sources of fresh and salt water, this basin is an ideal ...
Behavior of lobsters (Homarus americanus) in a semi-natural environment at ambient temperatures and under thermal stress
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-10)
In January, 1974 we established semi-natural habitats in two 10ft. diameter, octagonal aquaria, with five lobsters (Homarus americanus) each, and several Cancer irroratus, Anguilla rostrata, Pseudopleuronectes americanus and ...
CTD electromechanical termination users manual
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-08)
This report desribes a new, easy to install, reliable electromechanical cable termination to mechanically attach and electrically connect cable lowered instrument packages to their lowering cable.
Initial settlement of marine invertebrate larvae : the role of passive sinking in a near-bottom turbulent flow environment
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-02)
The hypothesis that planktonic larvae of benthic invertebrates sink through the water like passive particles in turbulent flows near the seabed was tested in the field using several groups of geometrically different ...
The geological record of oceanic crustal accretion and tectonism at slow-spreading ridges
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-12)
The objective of this Thesis was to interpret the structural development of slowspreading ridge segments by: 1) delineating the nature, magnitude, and relative importance of primary tectonic and volcanic processes that ...
