Airborne-radar and ice-core observations of annual snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica confirm the spatiotemporal variability of global and regional atmospheric models
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-26)
We use an airborne-radar method, verified with ice-core accumulation records, to determine the spatiotemporal variations of snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica between 1980 and 2009. We also present a ...
Crustal structure across the Costa Rican Volcanic Arc
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-04-29)
Island arcs are proposed to be essential building blocks for the crustal growth of continents; however, island arcs and continents are fundamentally different in bulk composition: mafic and felsic, respectively. The substrate ...

Active positioning of vent larvae at a mid-ocean ridge
The vertical position of larvae of vent species above a mid-ocean ridge potentially has a strong effect on their dispersal. Larvae may be advected upward in the buoyant vent plume, or move as a consequence of their buoyancy ...
Downfront winds over buoyant coastal plumes
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-07)
Downfront, or downwelling favorable, winds are commonly found over buoyant coastal plumes. It is known that these winds can result in mixing of the plume with the ambient water and that the winds influence the transport, ...
Development and evaluation of electromechanical cables for deep sea buoy applications
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
Electromechanical (E/M cables have been developed in order to satisfy the growing need for real time data telemetry from oceanographic moorings. Several E/M cable designs have been implemented with the cooperation of ...
A 2-D tomographic model of the Juan de Fuca plate from accretion at axial seamount to subduction at the Cascadia margin from an active source ocean bottom seismometer survey
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-08-14)
We report results from a wide-angle controlled source seismic experiment across the Juan de Fuca plate designed to investigate the evolution of the plate from accretion at the Juan de Fuca ridge to subduction at the Cascadia ...
Universal structure of mesoscale eddies in the ocean
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-30)
Mesoscale eddies dominate oceanic kinetic energy at sub-inertial frequencies. Their three-dimensional structure has, however, remained obscure, hindering better understanding of eddy dynamics. Here by applying the composite ...
Applied stochastic eigen-analysis
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
The first part of the dissertation investigates the application of the theory of large random matrices to high-dimensional inference problems when the samples are drawn from a multivariate normal distribution. A longstanding ...
