Gravity base stations in Indonesia and in the southwest Pacific
During October, November, and December of 1975, seventy gravity base stations were established on the islands of eastern Indonesia (Timor, Wetar, Leti, Moa, Sermata, Babar, Ambon, Seram, Manawoko, Kasiui, Kao Besar, Hungar, Serua, Banda Neira, Boano, Kelang and S.W. Sulawesi), New Caledonia and Fiji. The measurements were made with LaCoste and Romberg land gravimeter G-114. This report presents station descriptions and summarizes the results.

Southwest Pacific subtropics responded to last deglacial warming with changes in shallow water sources Schiraldi, Benedetto; Sikes, Elisabeth L.; Elmore, Aurora C.; Cook, Mea S.; Rose, Kathryn A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-06-17)This study examined sources of mixed layer and shallow subsurface waters in the subtropical Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, across the last deglaciation (~30–5 ka). δ18O and δ13C from planktonic foraminifera Globgerinoides ...
Wavenumber–frequency spectra of inertia–gravity and mixed Rossby–gravity waves in the equatorial Pacific Ocean Farrar, J. Thomas; Durland, Theodore S. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-11)In the 1970s and 1980s, there was considerable interest in near-equatorial variability at periods of days to weeks associated with oceanic equatorial inertia–gravity waves and mixed Rossby–gravity waves. At that time, the ...
Relationship of plankton and marine snow to hydrography and currents on the southwest portion of Georges Bank during June 1997 Du, Qingling (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-06)A key question in biological oceanography is how plankton populations maintain themselves in regions of favorable growth and survival in the face of horizontal transport by ocean currents. Plankton are thought to be ...
