Rotating convection : 1995 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-07)
The 1995 program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics addressed "Rotating Convection," with particular emphasis on high-Rayleigh-number convection and on convection in the ocean.
A deep sea docking station for ODYSSEY class autonomous underwater vehicles
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-06-10)
Under subcontract to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Sea Grant Autonomous Ocean Sampling Network (AOSN) program, engineers and researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) designed, ...
Parametric instability in oscillatory shear flows
(Cambridge University Press, 2003-04-28)
In this article we investigate time-periodic shear flows in the context of the two-dimensional vorticity equation, which may be applied to describe certain large-scale atmospheric and oceanic flows. The linear stability ...
Investigations of air-sea gas exchange in the CoOP Coastal Air-Sea Chemical Exchange project
(Oceanography Society, 2008-12)
The exchange of CO2 and other gases across the ocean-air interface is an extremely important component in global climate dynamics, photosynthesis and respiration, and the absorption of anthropogenically produced CO2. The ...
Sound scattering by spherical and elongated shelled bodies
(Acoustical Society of America, 1990-09)
Describing the scattering of sound by elongated objects with high aspect ratios (ratio of length to diameter) usually involves great numerical difficulties. The recently developed deformed cylinder solution was shown to ...
Multicarrier communication over underwater acoustic channels with nonuniform Doppler shifts
Underwater acoustic (UWA) channels are wideband in nature due to the small ratio of the carrier frequency to the signal bandwidth, which introduces frequency-dependent Doppler shifts. In this paper, we treat the channel ...
A modified beam-to-earth transformation to measure short-wavelength internal waves with an acoustic Doppler current profiler
(American Meteorological Society, 2005-05)
The algorithm used to transform velocity signals from beam coordinates to earth coordinates in an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) relies on the assumption that the currents are uniform over the horizontal distance ...
Modal processing for acoustic communications in shallow water experiment
(Acoustical Society of America, 2008-09)
Acoustical array data from the Shallow Water Acoustics experiment was processed to show the feasibility of broadband mode decomposition as a preprocessing method to reduce the effective channel delay spread and concentrate ...
The Interaction between science and policy in the control of Phragmites in oligohaline marshes of Delaware Bay
Public Service Enterprise Group of New Jersey restored Delaware Bay marshes to enhance fish production as part of a mitigation negotiated in a company’s NJPDES permit. Restoration meant control of an introduced type of ...
The influence of convection on large-scale circulations : 1988 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-07)
The topic for the 30th Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Summer Program was "The Influence of Convection on Large- Scale Motions." The principal lecturer, Kerry Emanual, presented the essential elements of dry convection, ...
