    • Fatally entangled right whales can die extremely slowly 

      Moore, Michael J.; Bogomolni, Andrea L.; Bowman, Robert; Hamilton, Philip K.; Harry, Charles T.; Knowlton, Amy R.; Landry, Scott; Rotstein, David S.; Touhey, Kathleen M. (IEEE, 2006-09)
      Unlike smaller marine mammals that lack the mass and power to break free from serious entanglements in fixed fishing gear, right whales can do so, but they are not always rope free. The remaining rope can gradually constrict ...
    • ITAG : an eco-sensor for fine-scale behavioral measurements of soft-bodied marine invertebrates 

      Mooney, T. Aran; Katija, Kakani; Shorter, K. Alex; Hurst, Thomas P.; Fontes, Jorge; Afonso, Pedro (BioMed Central, 2015-09-28)
      Soft-bodied marine invertebrates comprise a keystone component of ocean ecosystems; however, we know little of their behaviors and physiological responses within their natural habitat. Quantifying ocean conditions and ...
    • Larval settlement in flocculated particulates 

      Zimmer, Cheryl Ann; Starczak, Victoria R.; Arch, Victoria S.; Zimmer, Richard K. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2008-03)
      Planktonic larval settlement can be a major determinant of population and community dynamics. Settlement templates of benthic invertebrates have been attributed to biological, chemical, and hydrodynamic mechanisms. Completely ...
    • Midwater fish data report : cold core rings time series cruises, Knorr 62, 65, and 71 and Endeavor 11 

      Backus, Richard H.; Craddock, James E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-03)
      This data report is for midwater fishes taken on the time-series cruises in and around cold-core Gulf Stream rings in 1976 and 1977 - KNORR cruises 62, 65, and 71 and ENDEAVOR cruise 11. The MOCNESS-10 system was used ...
    • N2 fixation by subsurface populations of Trichodesmium : an important source of new nitrogen to the North Atlantic Ocean 

      Heithoff, Abigail (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-02)
      Trichodesmium, a genus of diazotrophic cyanobacteria, is an important contributor to the marine nitrogen (N) and carbon (C) cycles. The extent to which Trichodesmium dinitrogen (N2) fixation contributes to the marine N ...
    • New England and Corner Rise seamounts 

      Shank, Timothy M. (Oceanography Society, 2010-03)
      One of the longest seamount tracks in the Atlantic Ocean was formed by the Great Meteor or New England hotspot. This more than 3000-km-long hotspot track formed both the New England and Corner Rise seamounts, with a ...
    • The new vertebrate CYP1C family : cloning of new subfamily members and phylogenetic analysis 

      Godard, Celine A. J.; Goldstone, Jared V.; Said, Maya R.; Dickerson, Richard L.; Woodin, Bruce R.; Stegeman, John J. (2005-03-11)
      Two novel CYP1 genes from teleost fish constituting a new subfamily have been cloned. These paralogous sequences are designated CYP1C1 and CYP1C2. Both genes were initially obtained from untreated scup Stenotomus chrysops ...
    • Numbers of calling whales in the North Pacific 

      Watkins, William A.; Daher, Mary Ann; George, Joseph E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-11)
      Since November 1995, the U. S. Navy's Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS) and other hydrophone arrays were used to regularly sample the occurance of whale sounds in the four regions bordering the continental margins across ...
    • Plankton accumulation and transport in propagating nonlinear internal fronts 

      Scotti, Alberto; Pineda, Jesus (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2007-01)
      Accumulation and transport of plankton in fronts propagating across-shore is a process of considerable ecological importance for many inhabitants of the littoral zone, since it links the offshore larval pool with the ...
    • Premilinary results of the effects of SURTASS-LFA sonar on singing humpback whales 

      Biassoni, Nicoletta; Miller, Patrick J. O.; Tyack, Peter L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-05)
      The singing behavior of humpback whales exposed to SURTASS-LFA sonar was monitored in Hawaii during March 1998. An observation vessel towing a hydrophone array followed individual singers continuously recording their songs ...
    • Reference database marine mammal literature 

      Watkins, William A.; Bird, James E.; Moore, Karen E.; Tyack, Peter L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-01)
      A comprehensive Reference Database has been designed for the marine mammal literature. The system uses INMAGIC programming (Cambridge, MA) to file, store, search, retrieve, and format the data records. The database was ...
    • Seamount sciences : quo vadis? 

      Staudigel, Hubert; Koppers, Anthony A. P.; Lavelle, J. William; Pitcher, Tony J.; Shank, Timothy M. (Oceanography Society, 2010-03)
      Seamounts are fascinating natural ocean laboratories that inform us about fundamental planetary and ocean processes, ocean ecology and fisheries, and hazards and metal resources. The more than 100,000 large seamounts are ...
