  • Tyack, Peter L.; Recchia, Cheri A. (Acoustical Society of America, 1991-09)
    A datalogger was developed to identify vocalizing dolphins within socially interacting captive groups. Every 50 ms the logger stores data on the level and frequency of detected sound. Dataloggers are temporarily attached ...

    Decompression sickness (DCS; ‘the bends’) is a disease associated with gas uptake at pressure. The basic pathology and cause are relatively well known to human divers. Breath-hold diving marine mammals were thought to be ...
  • Bi, Hongsheng; Ji, Rubao; Liu, Hui; Jo, Young-Heon; Hare, Jonathan A. (Public Library of Science, 2014-01-31)
    The abundance of the subarctic copepod, Calanus finmarchicus, and temperate, shelf copepod, Centropages typicus, was estimated from samples collected bi-monthly over the Northeast U.S. continental shelf (NEUS) from 1977–2010. ...
  • Hulburt, Edward M. (2008-04-11)
    The deduction theorem is based primarily on the formula [A superset of (B superset of C)] superset of [(A superset of B) superset of (A superset of C)]. The fisheries of Newfoundland, Iceland, and west Greenland have ...
  • Lavelle, J. William; Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Ledwell, James R.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-12-31)
    We report the first 3-D numerical model study of abyssal ocean circulation and transport over the steep topography of the East Pacific Rise (EPR) and adjoining Lamont seamount chain in the eastern tropical Pacific. We begin ...
  • Hoagland, Porter; Beaulieu, Stace E.; Tivey, Maurice A.; Eggert, Roderick G.; German, Christopher R.; Glowka, Lyle; Lin, Jian (2009-10-28)
    The potential emergence of an ocean mining industry to exploit seafloor massive sulfides could present opportunities for oceanographic science to facilitate seafloor mineral development in ways that lessen environmental harms.
  • Robinson, Laura F.; Adkins, Jess F.; Scheirer, Daniel S.; Fernandez, Diego P.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Waller, Rhian G. (University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2007-11-01)
    Deep-sea corals have grown for over 200,000 yrs on the New England Seamounts in the northwest Atlantic, and this paper describes their distribution both with respect to depth and time. Many thousands of fossil scleractinian ...
  • Caron, David A.; Countway, Peter D.; Savai, Pratik; Gast, Rebecca J.; Schnetzer, Astrid; Moorthi, Stefanie D.; Dennett, Mark R.; Moran, Dawn M.; Jones, Adriane C. (2009-06-19)
    DNA sequence information has been increasingly used in ecological research on microbial eukaryotes. Sequence-based approaches have included studies of the total diversity of selected ecosystems, the autecology of ...
  • Staudigel, Hubert; Koppers, Anthony A. P.; Lavelle, J. William; Pitcher, Tony J.; Shank, Timothy M. (Oceanography Society, 2010-03)
    The term seamount has been defined many times (e.g., Menard, 1964; Wessel, 2001; Schmidt and Schmincke, 2000; Pitcher et al., 2007; International Hydrographic Organization, 2008; Wessel et al., 2010) but there is no ...
  • Bernhard, Joan M.; Edgcomb, Virginia P.; Casciotti, Karen L.; McIlvin, Matthew R.; Beaudoin, David J. (2011-10)
    Nitrogen can be a limiting macronutrient for carbon uptake by the marine biosphere. The process of denitrification (conversion of nitrate to gaseous compounds, including N2) removes bioavailable nitrogen, particularly in ...
  • Addamo, Anna M.; Reimer, James D.; Taviani, Marco; Freiwald, Andre; Machordom, Annie (Public Library of Science, 2012-11-28)
    The cosmopolitan solitary deep-water scleractinian coral Desmophyllum dianthus (Esper, 1794) was selected as a representative model species of the polyphyletic Caryophylliidae family to (1) examine phylogenetic relationships ...
  • Neubert, Michael G.; Caswell, Hal; Solow, Andrew R. (Ecological Society of America, 2009-10)
    By definition, ecological systems at a stable equilibrium eventually return to the equilibrium point following a small perturbation. In the short term, however, perturbations can grow. Equilibria that exhibit transient ...
  • Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Le Bris, Nadine; Mills, Susan W.; Henri, Pauline; Bayer, Skylar R.; Secrist, Richard G.; Siu, Nam (Public Library of Science, 2012-12-04)
    Deep-sea hydrothermal vents are subject to major disturbances that alter the physical and chemical environment and eradicate the resident faunal communities. Vent fields are isolated by uninhabitable deep seafloor, so ...
  • Lightner, K. J.; McMillan, W. W.; McCann, K. J.; Hoff, R. M.; Newchurch, M. J.; Hintsa, Eric J.; Barnet, C. D. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-03-25)

  • Strobel, S. M.; Mooney, T. Aran (2012-06)
    Auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) were used to measure the hearing range and auditory sensitivity of the American sand lance Ammodytes americanus. Responses to amplitude modulated tone pips indicated that the hearing ...
  • Lavery, Andone C.; Wiebe, Peter H.; Stanton, Timothy K.; Lawson, Gareth L.; Benfield, Mark C.; Copley, Nancy J. (Acoustical Society of America, 2007-12)
    High-frequency acoustic scattering techniques have been used to investigate dominant scatterers in mixed zooplankton populations. Volume backscattering was measured in the Gulf of Maine at 43, 120, 200, and 420 kHz. ...
  • Olson, Kirby S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-02)
    Respiratory systems function as one of the interfaces between an organism and its environment; the flexibility of this system may therefore constrain the distributional limits of the organism. The respiratory system of ...
