Upper crustal structure and axial topography at intermediate spreading ridges : seismic constraints from the southern Juan de Fuca Ridge
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-12-14)
We use multichannel seismic reflection data to image the upper crustal structure of 0-620 ka crust along the southern Juan de Fuca Ridge (JdFR). The study area comprises two segments spreading at intermediate rate with ...
The St. Lawrence polynya and the Bering shelf circulation : new observations and a model comparison
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-09-19)
Using 14 year-long instrumented moorings deployed south of St. Lawrence Island, along with oceanographic drifters, we investigate the circulation over the central Bering shelf and the role of polynyas in forming and ...
Bottom currents and abyssal sedimentation processes south of Iceland
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-10)
An investigation was carried out to observe the geologic effects of steady bottom currents on sediments of East Katla Ridge on the southern insular rise of Iceland. Near-bottom southwest to west-flowing currents exceeded ...
A computational tool for the rapid design and prototyping of propellers for underwater vehicles
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
An open source, MATLAB™-based propeller design code MPVL was improved to include rapid prototyping capabilities as well as other upgrades as part of this effort. The resulting code, OpenPVL is described in this thesis. ...
Composition and characteristics of particles in the ocean : evidence for present day resuspension
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-05)
This study of particulate matter in the water column and the underlying surface sediments verifies the occurrence of local, present-day resuspension in the deep sea. The location of the major portion of this work was the ...
A study of the seismic structure of upper oceanic crust using wide-angle reflections
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-01)
The lateral homogeneity of oceanic crust on the scale of a seismic experiment is a condition that most methods of seismic interpretation depend on. Whether this condition is in fact true is largely unknown and only ...
The gravity field and plate boundaries in Venezuela
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-01)
Free-air and simple Bouguer anomaly maps of the Venezuelan continental margin (from 60°W to 72°W and from 7°N to 13°N) are presented. The major features of the free-air map are: the large lows associated with the deep ...
Experimental stress analysis of model of emergency forebody release device used in deep diving research submarines Alvin, Sea Cliff and Turtle
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1969-08)
Tests were conducted on a full-scale model of the emergency forebody release used in the deep-diving submarines ALVIN, SEA CLIFF and TURTLE. The model was machined from metal to the same dimensional tolerances as the ...
Torque tests of a full size model of the Alvin/AUTEC emergency sphere release
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1970-11)
Laboratory torque tests were perfoirmed using an actual emergency sphere release shaft of the type used in the research submarines ALVIN, SEA CLIFF and TURTLE. A test fixture was constructed which permitted laboratory ...
