  • Scotti, Alberto; Pineda, Jesus (American Geophysical Union, 2004-11-25)
    We report on near-bottom waves of elevation with amplitude nearly half the 25 m water column, very steep, and propagating into a sheared turbulent wave-guide. The waves contained trapped cores transporting parcels of water ...

    The proposed plan for enrichment of the Sulu Sea, Philippines, a region of rich marine biodiversity, with thousands of tonnes of urea in order to stimulate algal blooms and sequester carbon is flawed for multiple reasons. ...
  • Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Madsen, Peter T.; Teloni, Valeria; Johnson, Mark P.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-11)
    Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) produce multipulsed clicks with their hypertrophied nasal complex. The currently accepted view of the sound generation process is based on the click structure measured directly in front ...
  • Harrison, Hugo B.; Saenz-Agudelo, Pablo; Planes, Serge; Jones, Geoffrey P.; Berumen, Michael L. (2013-05)
    Genetic parentage analyses provide a practical means with which to identify parent–offspring relationships in the wild. In Harrison et al.'s study (2013a), we compare three methods of parentage analysis and showed that the ...
  • Moeller, Holly V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
    In this thesis, I expand a spatially-explicit bioeconomic fishery model to include the negative effects of fishing effort on habitat quality. I consider two forms of effort driven habitat damage: First, fishing effort ...
  • 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 ...
  • Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 1985-11)
    A small telemetry device, called a "vocalight," was designed for attachment to a dolphin's head using a suction cup. The vocalight lights up a variable number of light-emitting diodes depending upon the loudness of sounds ...
  • Moore, C.; Barnard, A.; Fietzek, P.; Lewis, Marlon R.; Sosik, Heidi M.; White, Sheri N.; Zielinski, O. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-12-10)
    Requirements for understanding the relationships between ocean color and suspended and dissolved materials within the water column, and a rapidly emerging photonics and materials technology base for performing optical based ...
  • Shapiro, Ari D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-06)
    Studying the social and cultural transmission of behavior among animals helps to identify patterns of interaction and information content flowing between individuals. Killer whales are likely to acquire traits culturally ...
  • Montie, Eric W.; Reddy, Christopher M.; Gebbink, Wouter A.; Touhey, Kathleen M.; Hahn, Mark E.; Letcher, Robert J. (2009-03-12)
    Concentrations of several congeners and classes of organohalogen contaminants (OHCs) and/or their metabolites, namely organochlorine pesticides (OCs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), hydroxylated-PCBs (OH-PCBs), ...
  • Rakow, Kelly C.; Graham, William M. (2006)
    Individual Aurelia sp. medusae were distributed around regions of current shear associated with vertical density discontinuities during three vertically towed camera profiles in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Along shear ...
  • Tanner, Susanne E.; Reis-Santos, Patrick; Vasconcelos, Rita P.; Franca, Susana; Thorrold, Simon R.; Cabral, Henrique N. (2012-04)
    Otolith geochemistry is used increasingly as a natural tag to retrospectively determine habitat use in marine fishes. It is necessary to first conduct a thorough assessment of spatio-temporal variability before attempting ...
  • Berumen, Michael L.; Walsh, Harvey J.; Raventos, N.; Planes, Serge; Jones, Geoffrey P.; Starczak, Victoria R.; Thorrold, Simon R. (2010-06)
    Natural geochemical signatures in calcified structures are commonly employed to retrospectively estimate dispersal pathways of larval fish and invertebrates. However, the accuracy of the approach is generally untested due ...
  • Hunt, Kathleen E.; Moore, Michael J.; Rolland, Rosalind M.; Kellar, Nicholas M.; Hall, Ailsa J.; Kershaw, Joanna; Raverty, Stephen A.; Davis, Cristina E.; Yeates, Laura C.; Fauquier, Deborah A.; Rowles, Teresa K.; Kraus, Scott D. (Oxford University Press, 2013-05-15)
    Large whales are subjected to a variety of conservation pressures that could be better monitored and managed if physiological information could be gathered readily from free-swimming whales. However, traditional approaches ...

(Nature Publishing Group, 2013-07-10)
    Coccolithophores have influenced the global climate for over 200 million years1. These marine phytoplankton can account for 20 per cent of total carbon fixation in some systems2. They form blooms that can occupy hundreds ...
  • Garland, Elizabeth D.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-06)
    Patterns and rates of particle contact onto flat plates in steady unidirectional flows were investigated in a laboratory flume. Plates with three leading edge configurations (faired, bluff and split) were used to generate ...
  • Wiebe, Peter H.; Boyd, Steven H.; Winget, Clifford L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-09)
    A sedimentation trap for use just above the deep-sea floor was free-fallen to a depth of 2050 m in the Tongue of the Ocean canyon on January 3, 1974. On March 6, it was successfully recovered with the assistance of ...
