2009 program of studies : nonlinear waves
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-01)
The fiftieth year of the program was dedicated to Nonlinear Waves, a topic with many applications in geophysical fluid dynamics. The principal lectures were given jointly by Roger Grimshaw and Harvey Segur and between ...
Selective preservation of organic matter in marine environments; processes and impact on the sedimentary record
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2010-02-05)
The present paper is the result of a workshop sponsored by the DFG Research Center/Cluster of Excellence MARUM "The Ocean in the Earth System", the International Graduate College EUROPROX, and the Alfred Wegener Institute ...
The western Arctic boundary current at 152°W : structure, variability, and transport
From August 2002 to September 2004 a high-resolution mooring array was maintained across the western Arctic boundary current in the Beaufort Sea north of Alaska. The array consisted of profiling instrumentation, providing ...
Defining DNA-based operational taxonomic units for microbial-eukaryote ecology
DNA sequence information has been increasingly used in ecological research on microbial eukaryotes. Sequence-based approaches have included studies of the total diversity of selected ecosystems, the autecology of ...
Modelling interactions of acid–base balance and respiratory status in the toxicity of metal mixtures in the American oyster Crassostrea virginica
Heavy metals, such as copper, zinc and cadmium, represent some of the most common and serious pollutants in coastal estuaries. In the present study, we used a combination of linear and artificial neural network (ANN) ...
Seismic reflection images of a near-axis melt sill within the lower crust at the Juan de Fuca ridge
The oceanic crust extends over two thirds of the Earth’s solid surface and is generated along mid-ocean ridges from melts derived from the upwelling mantle. The upper and mid crust are constructed by dyking and seafloor ...
External tagging does not affect the feeding behavior of a coral reef fish, Chaetodon vagabundus (Pisces: Chaetodontidae)
Increasingly, the ability to recognize individual fishes is important for studies of population dynamics, ecology, and behavior. Although a variety of methods exist, external tags remain one of the most widely applied ...
Deep-sea mining of seafloor massive sulfides
The potential emergence of an ocean mining industry to exploit seafloor massive sulfides could present opportunities for oceanographic science to facilitate seafloor mineral development in ways that lessen environmental harms.
Biochemical changes associated with embryonic and larval development in the American lobster Homarus americanus Milne Edwards
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-01)
Proximate analysis was carried out on developing Homarus americanus Milne Edwards larvae and eggs. Lipids were further analyzed for class and fatty acid composition. During embryogenesis, triacylglycerol supplied most ...
Modeling wind forcing in phase resolving simulation of nonlinear wind waves
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
Wind waves in the ocean are a product of complex interaction of turbulent air flow with gravity driven water surface. The coupling is strong and the waves are non-stationary, irregular and highly nonlinear, which restricts ...
