Iron isotope fractionation in subterranean estuaries
Dissolved Fe concentrations in subterranean estuaries, like their river-seawater counterparts, are strongly controlled by non-conservative behavior during mixing of groundwater and seawater in coastal aquifers. Previous ...
Biogeochemical applications of compound-specific radiocarbon analysis
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-10)
Compound-specific carbon isotopic (δ13C and Δ14C) data are reported for lipid biomarkers isolated from Santa Monica Basin (SMB) and Santa Barbara Basin (SBB) surface sediments. These organic compounds represent ...
Stratus Ocean Reference Station (20˚S, 85˚W), mooring recovery and deployment cruise R/V Ronald H. Brown cruise 05-05, September 26, 2005–October 21, 2005
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-02)
The Ocean Reference Station at 20°S, 85°W under the stratus clouds west of northern Chile is being maintained to provide ongoing, climate-quality records of surface meteorology, of air-sea fluxes of heat, freshwater, and ...
Mesoscale eddy-internal wave coupling. Part I : symmetry, wave capture, and results from the Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment
(American Meteorological Society, 2008-11)
Vertical profiles of horizontal velocity obtained during the Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment (MODE) provided the first published estimates of the high vertical wavenumber structure of horizontal velocity. The data were ...
Flow and hydraulics near the sill of Hood Canal, a strongly sheared, continuously stratified fjord
(American Meteorological Society, 2010-05)
Hood Canal, a long fjord in Washington State, has strong tides but limited deep-water renewal landward of a complex constriction. Tide-resolving hydrographic and velocity observations at the constriction, with a depth-cycling ...
Dynamics of downwelling in an eddy-resolving convective basin
(American Meteorological Society, 2010-10)
The mean downwelling in an eddy-resolving model of a convective basin is concentrated near the boundary where eddies are shed from the cyclonic boundary current into the interior. It is suggested that the buoyancy-forced ...

Corrigendum: Spall, M. A., R. S. Pickart, P. S. Fratantoni, and A. J. Plueddemann, 2008: Western Arctic shelfbreak eddies: Formation and transport. J. Phys. Oceanogr., 38, 1644–1668
Accounting for marine economic activities in large marine ecosystems
We develop an index that is a measure of the intensity of marine activities in large marine ecosystems (LMEs). We compare this marine activity index with an index of socioeconomic development across ocean regions. This ...
Higher-order acoustic diffraction by edges of finite thickness
(Acoustical Society of America, 2007-12)
A cw solution of acoustic diffraction by a three-sided semi-infinite barrier or a double edge, where the width of the midplanar segment is finite and cannot be ignored, involving all orders of diffraction is presented. The ...
Floating oil-covered debris from Deepwater Horizon : identification and application
(IOP Publishing, 2012-01-18)
The discovery of oiled and non-oiled honeycomb material in the Gulf of Mexico surface waters and along coastal beaches shortly after the explosion of Deepwater Horizon sparked debate about its origin and the oil covering ...
