Airborne-radar and ice-core observations of annual snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica confirm the spatiotemporal variability of global and regional atmospheric models
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-26)
We use an airborne-radar method, verified with ice-core accumulation records, to determine the spatiotemporal variations of snow accumulation over Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica between 1980 and 2009. We also present a ...
Experimental and seismological constraints on the rheology, evolution, and alteration of the lithosphere at oceanic spreading centers
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)
Oceanic spreading centers are sites of magmatic, tectonic, and hydrothermal processes. In this thesis I present experimental and seismological constraints on the evolution of these complex regions of focused crustal ...
Optimal bioeconomic management of changing marine resources
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2016-09)
Marine populations are increasingly subjected to changing conditions whether through harvest or through broad-scale habitat change. Historically, few models have accounted for such trends over time, and even fewer have ...

Crustal magnetization and the subseafloor structure of the ASHES vent field, Axial Seamount, Juan de Fuca Ridge : implications for the investigation of hydrothermal sites
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-06-24)
High-resolution geophysical data have been collected using the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Sentry over the ASHES (Axial Seamount Hydrothermal Emission Study) high-temperature (~348°C) vent field at Axial Seamount, ...
Expansion and contraction of the Indo-Pacific tropical rain belt over the last three millennia
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09-29)
The seasonal north-south migration of the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) defines the tropical rain belt (TRB), a region of enormous terrestrial and marine biodiversity and home to 40% of people on Earth. The TRB is ...
Predicting Atlantic seasonal hurricane activity using outgoing longwave radiation over Africa
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-07-08)
Seasonal hurricane activity is a function of the amount of initial disturbances (e.g., easterly waves) and the background environment in which they develop into tropical storms (i.e., the main development region). Focusing ...
Experiences of a “semantics smackdown”
Within the field of ocean science there is a long history of using controlled vocabularies and other Semantic Web techniques to provide a common and easily exchanged description of datasets. As an activity within the ...
