A compilation of moored current meter observations : volume I
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1965-08)
Summaries of current measurements made with Richardson current meters at three moored stations in the Western North Atlantic are presented. Averaged quantities are presented in the form of computer-plotted curves.
Earthquake swarms driven by aseismic creep in the Salton Trough, California
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-10)
In late August 2005, a swarm of more than a thousand earthquakes between magnitudes 1 and 5.1 occurred at the Obsidian Buttes, near the southern San Andreas Fault. This swarm provides the best opportunity to date to assess ...
The role of multixenobiotic transporters in predatory marine molluscs as counter-defense mechanisms against dietary allelochemicals
Multixenobiotic transporters have been extensively studied for their ability to modulate the disposition and toxicity of pharmacological agents, yet their influence in regulating the levels of dietary toxins within marine ...
Proteomic identification, cDNA cloning and enzymatic activity of glutathione S-transferases from the generalist marine gastropod, Cyphoma gibbosum
Glutathione S-transferases (GST) were characterized from the digestive gland of Cyphoma gibbosum (Mollusca; Gastropoda), to investigate the possible role of these detoxification enzymes in conferring resistance to ...
Rapid sediment deposition and fine-scale strata formation in the Hudson estuary
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-21)
A 9 month time series of tripod-mounted optical and acoustic measurements of sediment concentration and bed elevation was used to examine depositional processes in relationship to hydrodynamic variables in the Hudson River ...
A ligand for the aryl hydrocarbon receptor isolated from lung
(National Academy of Sciences, 2002-10-30)
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a ligand-inducible transcription factor that is best known because it mediates the actions of polycyclic and halogenated aromatic hydrocarbon environmental toxicants such as ...
Connections between ocean bottom topography and Earth’s climate
(Oceanography Society, 2004-03)
The seafloor is one of the critical controls on the ocean’s general circulation. Its influence comes through a variety of mechanisms including the contribution of mixing in the ocean’s interior through the generation ...
Generalized concentration addition predicts joint effects of aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonists with partial agonists and cCompetitive antagonists
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009-12-22)
Background: Predicting the expected outcome of a combination exposure is critical to risk -assessment. The toxic equivalency factor (TEF) approach used for analyzing joint effects of dioxin-like chemicals is a special case ...
Rainfall and seawater temperature in St. John, USVI in 1987–2013 (St. John LTREB project, VI Octocorals project).
(Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: email@example.com, 2016-11-15)
Physical environmental data from 1989 – 2013 are were recorded using in situ data loggers, weather stations and data buoys, to provide seawater temperature data (1989 – 2013) and rainfall (1987 – 2013). Maximum/ minimum ...
Understanding ENSO diversity
(American Meteorological Society, 2015-06)
El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a naturally occurring mode of tropical Pacific variability, with global impacts on society and natural ecosystems. While it has long been known that El Niño events display a diverse ...
