Functional genomics of a non-toxic Alexandrium lusitanicum culture
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) is a human intoxication associated with the consumption of shellfish contaminated with a family of neurotoxins called saxitoxins. Many species in the dinoflagellate genus Alexandrium ...
Structural evaluation of fixed offshore platforms
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-01)
In fixed offshore structures, damage incurred below the waterline is often difficult to detect, but significant enough to be the source of a subsequent massive failure. A technique is described that can be used to detect ...
On the flow induced in a thermally stratified fluid by a source of heat
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-06)
The flow produced by an infinitely long horizontal heated strip in a thermally stratified fluid is examined theoretically. For strong stratification a long flat convection cell or tongue results. Profiles of velocity and ...
Motion sensitivity of flame ionization detectors
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-05)
A portable gas chromatograph, using a single flame ionization detector, was constructed. The unit was tested for response to surge, sway and heave accelerations up to 0.3g. Also the detector's response was studied for ...
Emulating the fast-start swimming performance of the chain pickerel (Esox niger) using a mechanical fish design
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
Mean maximum start-up accelerations and velocities achieved by the fast-start specialist, northern pike, are reported at 120 ms-2 and 4 ms-1, respectively (Harper and Blake, 1990). In this thesis, a simple mechanical system ...
Stirring and mixing : 1999 Program of Summer Study in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-07)
The central theme of the 1999 GFD Program was the stirring, transport, reaction and mixing of passive and active tracers in turbulent, stratified, rotating fluids. The problem of mixing in fluids has applications in areas ...
2005 program of studies : fast times and fine scales
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-07)
The 2005 GFD program was entitled “Fast Times and Fine Scales” with a focus on asymptotic and stochastic modeling methods that exploit a physical scale separation of some kind. An extremely strong application pool resulted ...

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-05)
This report is a compilation of abstracts distrbuted at the Coastal Ocean Processes Symposium: A Tribute to Willam D. Grant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution from September 27 - September 30, 1998.
United States electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) test-bed project : system requirements specification
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-08)
In 1989 the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a provisional performance Standard for ECDIS (MSC/Circ. 515). This standard defines an electronic chart display and ...
Developing a national marine electronics agenda : proceedings of the Marine Instrumentation Panel meeting, September 12-14, 1989
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-12)
Thirteen short papers address aspects of competitiveness in the marine electronics instrumentation industry. Topics include activity and status of government initiatives in Japan and Europe to promote this industry; and ...
