Underwater camera positioning by sonar
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1960-03)
A pulse sonar system is described for measuring the height above the bottom of an underwater camera and other equipment in the deep oceans. Using this method, cameras have been positioned for photography at depths to ...
Measurements of sound-speed and density contrasts of zooplankton in Antarctic waters
Sound-speed and density contrasts (h and g, respectively), two important acoustic material properties, of live zooplankton were measured off the western Antarctic Peninsula during a Southern Ocean GLOBEC cruise conducted ...
Fluid mechanical measurements within the bottom boundary layer during coastal mixing and optics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-08)
To quantify and understand the role of vertical mixing processes in determining mid-shelf vertical structure of hydrographic and optical properties and particulate matter, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) funded a program ...

Notes on the 1968 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1968)
The general circulation of the oceans was the topic of concentration for the 1968 WHOI Summer Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
Directional wavenumber characteristics of short sea waves
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-02)
Interest in short waves on the ocean surface has been growing over the last three decades because they play an important role in surface electromagnetic (e.m.) scattering. Currently radars and scatterometers which use ...
Multiple convergence zone acoustic telemetry feasibility test report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-11)
This report describes a multiple CZ acoustic telemetry experiment conducted off the coast of California 1/28/90-2/2/90. The goal was to design a maximally robust high speed underwater modem suitable for data telemetry for ...
The role of sulfur in salt marsh metabolism
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-02)
The rate of sulfate reduction in stands of dwarf Spartina alterniflora in the Great Sippewissett Salt Marsh is approximately 75 moles S04 m2 year-1. This is the highest rate reported for any natural ecosystem. Sulfate ...
On the nature of estuarine circulation : part I (chapters 3 and 4)
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-10)
The reader will quickly see that the subject matter of Chapter 3 is confined to the hydraulics of sharply stratified media, whereas real estuaries are always more or less diffusely stratified. What is more, no discussion ...
Analysis of acoustic communication channel characterization data in the surf zone
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
A channel characterization experiment for the underwater acoustic communication channel was carried out at Scripps Pier in May 1999. The experiment investigated acoustic transmission in very shallow water and breaking ...
