    Determination of 14C in aragonite (CaCO3) decomposed thermally to CO2 using an yttrium‐aluminum‐garnet doped neodymium laser is reported. Laser decomposition accelerator mass spectrometer (LD‐AMS) measurements reproduce ...
  • Warren, Joseph D.; Wiebe, Peter H. (2007-09-26)
    In order to convert measurements of backscattered acoustic energy to estimates of abundance and taxonomic information about the zooplankton community, all of the scattering processes in the water column need to be identified ...
  • Hu, Qiao; Davis, Cabell S. (Inter-Research, 2006-01-11)
    Optical imaging samplers are becoming widely used in plankton ecology, but image analysis methods have lagged behind image acquisition rates. Automated methods for analysis and recognition of plankton images have been ...
  • Martin Traykovski, Linda V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-02)
    Work on the forward problem in zooplankton bioacoustics has resulted in the identification of three categories of acoustic scatterers: elastic-shelled (e.g. pteropods), fluid-like (e.g. euphausiids), and gas-bearing (e.g. ...
  • Parks, Susan E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2003-09)
    The focus of this thesis is the use of sound for communication by the North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis). The surface active group (SAG) is the predominant social interaction in this species for which use ...
  • Tyack, Peter L. (Inter-Research, 2009-12-03)
    Growing concern about the effects of anthropogenic sound on marine life has highlighted the need for empirical methods to study behavioral responses of marine animals to specific acoustic exposures. Some effects have been ...
  • Stanton, Timothy K.; Chu, Dezhang; Wiebe, Peter H.; Eastwood, Robert L.; Warren, Joseph D. (Acoustical Society of America, 2000-08)
    Acoustic backscattering measurements and associated scattering modeling were recently conducted on a type of benthic shelled animal that has a spiral form of shell (Littorina littorea). Benthic and planktonic shelled animals ...
  • Stoecker, Diane K.; Johnson, Matthew D.; de Vargas, Colomban; Not, Fabrice (Inter-Research, 2009-11-24)
    Acquisition of phototrophy is widely distributed in the eukaryotic tree of life and can involve algal endosymbiosis or plastid retention from green or red origins. Species with acquired phototrophy are important components ...
  • Johnson, Matthew D. (2010-04)
    Many non-photosynthetic species of protists and metazoans are capable of hosting viable algal endosymbionts or their organelles through adaptations of phagocytic pathways. A form of mixotrophy, acquired phototrophy (AcPh) ...
  • Whalen, Kristen E.; Reitzel, Adam M.; Hamdoun, Amro (American Society for Cell Biology, 2012-08-01)
    Fertilization changes the structure and function of the cell surface. In sea urchins, these changes include polymerization of cortical actin and a coincident, switch-like increase in the activity of the multidrug efflux ...
  • Mullineaux, Lauren S.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Mills, Susan W.; Kosnyrev, V. K.; Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Ledwell, James R.; Lavelle, J. William (2013-03)
    The vertical position of larvae of vent species above a mid-ocean ridge potentially has a strong effect on their dispersal. Larvae may be advected upward in the buoyant vent plume, or move as a consequence of their buoyancy ...
  • Tapia, Fabian J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-09)
    The geographic distribution and dynamics of coastal benthic populations are shaped by physical biological interactions affecting larval dispersal and the demography of juvenile and adult individuals. This thesis focused ...
  • Kaplan, Maxwell B.; Mooney, T. Aran; McCorkle, Daniel C.; Cohen, Anne L. (Public Library of Science, 2013-05-31)
    Anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) is being absorbed into the ocean, altering seawater chemistry, with potentially negative impacts on a wide range of marine organisms. The early life stages of invertebrates with internal ...

    The discovery of a living coelacanth specimen in 1938 was remarkable, as this lineage of lobe-finned fish was thought to have become extinct 70 million years ago. The modern coelacanth looks remarkably similar to many of ...
