On the midwater fish faunas of Gulf Stream rings with respect to habitat differences between slope water and northern Sargasso Sea Jahn, Andrew E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-04)Forty-three 1000-in oblique Isaacs-Kidd midwater trawl collections were made on six cruises. In most cases, these were accompanied by 1500-m hydrocasts and plankton tows to 800 m. The fish collections comprise 19,400 ...
Controls on dissolved cobalt in surface waters of the Sargasso Sea : comparisons with iron and aluminum Shelley, R. U.; Sedwick, Peter N.; Bibby, Thomas S.; Cabedo-Sanz, P.; Church, Thomas M.; Johnson, Rodney J.; Macey, A. I.; Marsay, Christopher M.; Sholkovitz, Edward R.; Ussher, Simon J.; Worsfold, Paul J.; Lohan, M. C. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-19)Dissolved cobalt (dCo), iron (dFe) and aluminum (dAl) were determined in water column samples along a meridional transect (~31°N to 24°N) south of Bermuda in June 2008. A general north-to-south increase in surface ...
Ocean circulation and biogeochemistry moderate interannual and decadal surface water pH changes in the Sargasso Sea Goodkin, Nathalie F.; Wang, Bo-Shian; You, Chen-Feng; Hughen, Konrad A.; Grumet-Prouty, Nancy; Bates, Nicholas R.; Doney, Scott C. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-06-25)The oceans absorb anthropogenic CO2 from the atmosphere, lowering surface ocean pH, a concern for calcifying marine organisms. The impact of ocean acidification is challenging to predict as each species appears to respond ...
