Downfront winds over buoyant coastal plumes
(American Meteorological Society, 2016-10-07)
Downfront, or downwelling favorable, winds are commonly found over buoyant coastal plumes. It is known that these winds can result in mixing of the plume with the ambient water and that the winds influence the transport, ...
Development and evaluation of electromechanical cables for deep sea buoy applications
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
Electromechanical (E/M cables have been developed in order to satisfy the growing need for real time data telemetry from oceanographic moorings. Several E/M cable designs have been implemented with the cooperation of ...
Universal structure of mesoscale eddies in the ocean
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-30)
Mesoscale eddies dominate oceanic kinetic energy at sub-inertial frequencies. Their three-dimensional structure has, however, remained obscure, hindering better understanding of eddy dynamics. Here by applying the composite ...
Deep seafloor arrivals in long range ocean acoustic propagation
(Acoustical Society of America, 2013-10)
Ocean bottom seismometer observations at 5000 m depth during the long-range ocean acoustic propagation experiment in the North Pacific in 2004 show robust, coherent, late arrivals that are not readily explained by ocean ...
Characterizing the error in the estimated age-depth relationship
(Dept. of Geosciences, University of Arizona, 2003)
It is common practice to estimate the age of undated material extracted from a sediment core from radiocarbon or other radiometric dates of samples taken above and below the extracted material. This paper presents a simple ...
Sound Cut, Record Number 67027009
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-04-30)
Recording of unknown number of Ribbon seals. Short downsweeps and an in-air growl.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide variability in the Community Earth System Model : evaluation and transient dynamics during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-07-01)
Changes in atmospheric CO2 variability during the twenty-first century may provide insight about ecosystem responses to climate change and have implications for the design of carbon monitoring programs. This paper describes ...
Dissolved strontium in the subterranean estuary- implications for the marine strontium isotope budget
Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the ocean supplies Sr with less radiogenic 87Sr/86Sr than seawater, and thus constitutes an important term in the Sr isotope budget in the modern ocean. However, few data exist for ...
Meridional overturning circulation in the South Atlantic at the last glacial maximum
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-10-03)
The geostrophic shear associated with the meridional overturning circulation is reflected in the difference in density between the eastern and western margins of the ocean basin. Here we examine how the density difference ...
