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 ...
Studies of the waters on the continental shelf, Cape Cod to Chesapeake Bay. I. The cycle of temperature
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1933-12)
When the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries, in cooperation with the Museum of Comparative Zoology, commenced the oceanographic survey of the Gulf of Maine in the summer of 1912 (Bigelow, 1925-1927), it was in the hope that this ...
Altimeter processing tools for analyzing mesoscale ocean features
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-09)
Satellite altimeters provide many opportunities for oceanographers to supplement their research with a valuable new data set. The recent GEOSAT exact repeat mission is the first of several altimeter missions proposed ...
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 ...
Toxic dinoflagellates and marine mammal mortalities : proceedings of an expert consultation held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-11)
On May 8 and 9, 1989, a consultation of experts was convened at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to discuss the possible link between natural biotoxins and recent mass mortalities of humpback whales and bottlenose ...
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 ...
Collection and processing of shipboard ADCP velocities from the Barents Sea Polar Front Experiment
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-01)
The Barents Sea Polar Front Experiment was a combined physical oceanography and acoustic tomography field study which took place from 6-26 August 1992. Both shipboard and moored data were collected in a 80 x 70 km ...
Hydrographic data from the U. S. Naval Oceanographic Office : Persian Gulf, Southern Red Sea, and Arabian Sea, 1923-1996
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-04)
Temperature-salinity-depth profile data were obtained for the Persian Gulf, Southern Red Sea and parts of the Arabian Sea from the Master Oceanographic Data Set (MOODS), located at the U. S. Naval Oceanographic Office ...
