A dissolved cobalt plume in the oxygen minimum zone of the eastern tropical South Pacific
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016-10-17)
Cobalt is a nutrient to phytoplankton, but knowledge about its biogeochemical cycling is limited, especially in the Pacific Ocean. Here, we report sections of dissolved cobalt and labile dissolved cobalt from the US GEOTRACES ...
Frequency-dependent two-sex models : a new approach to sex ratio evolution with multiple maternal conditions
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-09-07)
Mothers that experience different individual or environmental conditions may produce different proportions of male to female offspring. The Trivers-Willard hypothesis, for instance, suggests that mothers with different ...
Validation of genetic algorithm-based optimal sampling for ocean data assimilation
Regional ocean models are capable of forecasting conditions for usefully long intervals of time (days) provided that initial and ongoing conditions can be measured. In resource-limited circumstances, the placement of ...
Annual and semiannual cycle of equatorial Atlantic circulation associated with basin-mode resonance
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-05)
Seasonal variability of the tropical Atlantic circulation is dominated by the annual cycle, but semiannual variability is also pronounced, despite weak forcing at that period. This study uses multiyear, full-depth velocity ...
Variation in habitat soundscape characteristics influences settlement of a reef-building coral
Coral populations, and the productive reef ecosystems they support, rely on successful recruitment of reef-building species, beginning with settlement of dispersing larvae into habitat favourable to survival. Many substrate ...
Climate forcing for dynamics of dissolved inorganic nutrients at Palmer Station, Antarctica : an interdecadal (1993–2013) analysis
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-09-17)
We analyzed 20 years (1993–2013) of observations of dissolved inorganic macronutrients (nitrate, N; phosphate, P; and silicate, Si) and chlorophyll a (Chl) at Palmer Station, Antarctica (64.8°S, 64.1°W) to elucidate how ...
Analysis of flow within the coastal boundary layer off Long Island, New York
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-04)
From 1974 through 1978 a series of intensive measurements were made in the coastal waters within 12 km of Long Island. The data were derived from two sources: a mooring array from which time series of temperature, ...
Bottom-mounted profiling winch
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-03)
A winch has been developed which can be free-dropped to the ocean bottom in full ocean depths. The winch is powered by self-contained batteries and can be programmed to cycle self-recording instruments from close to the ...
Underwater sounds from ribbon seal, Phoca (Histriophoca) fasciata
(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA, 1977)
Intense downward frequency "sweeps" and broadband "puffing" sounds were recorded underwater in the presence of ribbon seal, Phoca (Histriophoca) fasciata Zimmerman 1783. The recordings were made in the waters off ...
