Deep seafloor arrivals in long range ocean acoustic propagation
(Acoustical Society of America, 2013-10)
Ocean bottom seismometer observations at 5000 m depth during the long-range ocean acoustic propagation experiment in the North Pacific in 2004 show robust, coherent, late arrivals that are not readily explained by ocean ...
Real-time reporting of baleen whale passive acoustic detections from ocean gliders
(Acoustical Society of America, 2013-08)
In the past decade, much progress has been made in real-time passive acoustic monitoring of marine mammal occurrence and distribution from autonomous platforms (e.g., gliders, floats, buoys), but current systems focus ...
Reconstructing the ocean's interior from surface data
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
A new method is proposed for extrapolating subsurface velocity and density fields from sea surface density and sea surface height (SSH). In this, the surface density is linked to the subsurface fields via the surface ...
Supplement to physical exchanges at the air–sea interface : UK–SOLAS field measurements
(American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
Mass-induced sea level change in the northwestern North Pacific and its contribution to total sea level change
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-08-02)
Over the period 2003–2011, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite pair revealed a remarkable variability in mass-induced sea surface height (MSSH) in the northwestern North Pacific. A significant ...
Reproductive morphology of three species of deep-water precious corals from the Hawaiian Archipelago : Gerardia Sp., Corallium secundum, and Corallium lauuense
(University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2007-11-01)
Three species of deep-sea corals were collected from several locations in the Hawaiian Archipelago. These species have been called "precious corals" because of their extensive use in the jewelry industry. Two octocorals ...
A higher-order tangent linear parabolic-equation solution of three-dimensional sound propagation
(Acoustical Society of America, 2013-07-15)
A higher-order square-root operator splitting algorithm is employed to derive a tangent linear solution for the three-dimensional parabolic wave equation due to small variations of the sound speed in the medium. The solution ...
Constraints on the vital effect in coccolithophore and dinoflagellate calcite by oxygen isotopic modification of seawater
In this study, we show that there are independent controls of 18O/16O and 13C/12C fractionation in coccolithophore and dinoflagellate calcite due to the contrasting kinetics of each isotope system. We demonstrate that ...
Along-shelf current variability on the Catalan inner-shelf (NW Mediterranean)
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-09-22)
We examine the circulation over the inner-shelf of the Catalan Sea using observations of currents obtained from three Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (two at 24 m and one at 50 m) during March–April 2011. The along-shelf ...
Atlantic water variability on the SE Greenland continental shelf and its relationship to SST and bathymetry
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-02-20)
Interaction of warm, Atlantic-origin water (AW) and colder, polar origin water (PW) advecting southward in the East Greenland Current (EGC) influences the heat content of water entering Greenland's outlet glacial fjords. ...
