Export fluxes of calcite in the eastern equatorial Pacific from the Last Glacial Maximum to present
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-06-12)
The eastern equatorial Pacific (EEP) is an important center of biological productivity, generating significant organic carbon and calcite fluxes to the deep ocean. We reconstructed paleocalcite flux for the past 30,000 ...
Hydrographic structure of overflow water passing through the Denmark Strait
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2015-09)
Denmark Strait Overflow Water (DSOW) constitutes the densest portion of North Atlantic Deep Water, which feeds the lower limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). As such, it is critical to understand ...
Bibliography of technical reports 1986
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-04)
The technical reports prepared by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 1986 are listed in this bibliography.
Mantle upwelling, melt generation, and magma transport beneath mid-ocean ridges
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-03)
The formation of new oceanic crust is the result of a complex geodynamic system in which mantle rises beneath spreading centers and undergoes decompression melting. The melt segregates from the matrix and is focused to ...
Sands and environmental conditions impact the abundance and persistence of the fecal indicator bacteria Enterococcus at recreational beaches
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-09)
The marine fecal indicator Enterococcus is measured at beaches to detect fecal contamination events, and beaches are closed to bathers when Enterococcus is found to exceed the federally mandated limit. This dissertation ...
Natural and synthetic estrogens in wastewater treatment plant effluent and the coastal ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-09)
Steroidal estrogens are potent endocrine disrupting chemicals that are naturally excreted by vertebrates (e.g., humans and fish) and can enter natural waters through the discharge of treated and raw sewage. Because ...
Construction kits or virtual worlds; management applications of E2E models
We review briefly the diversity of modeling activity that comes under the rubric of end-to-end (E2E) models, but the focus of this paper – of joint concern to researchers and to managers - is on applications to management ...
Influence of the Icelandic Low latitude on the frequency of Greenland tip jet events : implications for Irminger Sea convection
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-26)
The occurrence of Greenland tip jet events has been reported as the dominant factor controlling the formation of intermediate water in the Irminger Sea. It has been suggested that the frequency of these events is correlated ...
Evaluating triple oxygen isotope estimates of gross primary production at the Hawaii Ocean Time-series and Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study sites
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-08)
The triple oxygen isotopic composition of dissolved oxygen (17Δ) is a promising tracer of gross oxygen productivity (P) in the ocean. Recent studies have inferred a high and variable ratio of P to 14C net primary productivity ...
A multi-dimensional spectral description of ocean variability with applications
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)
Efforts to monitor the ocean for signs of climate change are hampered by ever-present noise, in the form of stochastic ocean variability, and detailed knowledge of the character of this noise is necessary for estimating ...
