Sr-90 and Sr-89 in seawater off Japan as a consequence of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear accident
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-06-03)
The impact of the earthquake and tsunami on the east coast of Japan on 11 March 2011 caused a loss of power at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant (NPP) that resulted in one of the most important releases of artificial ...
Statistics of nonlinear internal waves during the Shallow Water 2006 Experiment
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-04-18)
During the Shallow Water Acoustic Experiment 2006 (SW06) conducted on the New Jersey continental shelf in the summer of 2006, detailed measurements of the ocean environment were made along a fixed reference track that was ...
Influence of environmental variables on Gambierdiscus spp. (Dinophyceae) growth and distribution
(Public Library of Science, 2016-04-13)
Benthic dinoflagellates in the genus Gambierdiscus produce the ciguatoxin precursors responsible for the occurrence of ciguatera toxicity. The prevalence of ciguatera toxins in fish has been linked to the presence and ...
Progress report on the development of the seafloor borehole array seismic system (phase II) : July 14, 1992 to January 31, 1996
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)
The Seafloor Borehole Array Seismic System (SEABASS) was originally developed to record autonomously on the seafloor the signals received on a four-sonde three-component borehole geophone array in the VLF band (2-50Hz)(Stephen ...
Early life history and fisheries oceanography : new questions in a changing world
(The Oceanography Society, 2014-12)
In the past 100 years since the birth of fisheries oceanography, research on the early life history of fishes, particularly the larval stage, has been extensive, and much progress has been made in identifying the mechanisms ...
Microbial iron mats at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and evidence that Zetaproteobacteria may be restricted to iron-oxidizing marine systems
(Public Library of Science, 2015-03-11)
Chemolithoautotrophic iron-oxidizing bacteria play an essential role in the global iron cycle. Thus far, the majority of marine iron-oxidizing bacteria have been identified as Zetaproteobacteria, a novel class within the ...
Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry News, vol. 7. no. 2

Russell, J, J Sarmiento, H Cullen, R Hotinski, K Johnson, S Riser, and L Talley. The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling Program (SOCCOM).
Oceanographic pursuit : networked control of multiple vehicles tracking dynamic ocean features
We present an integrated framework for joint estimation and pursuit of dynamic features in the ocean, over large spatial scales and with multiple collaborating vehicles relying on limited communications. Our approach uses ...
Boundary mixing in Orkney Passage outflow
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-16)
One of the most remarkable features of contemporary oceanic climate change is the warming and contraction of Antarctic Bottom Water over much of global ocean abyss. These signatures represent changes in ventilation mediated ...
Moored observations of synoptic and seasonal variability in the East Greenland Coastal Current
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-23)
We present a year-round assessment of the hydrographic variability within the East Greenland Coastal Current on the Greenland shelf from five synoptic crossings and 4 years of moored hydrographic data. From the five synoptic ...
