This report presents visual core descriptions and smear slide analyses for all cores in the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution geological samples collection which were obtained prior to November 1973. Approximately 1000 coring stations from the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans and adjacent seas are represented. Charts of ships' track and computer listings of all cores are also included.

Flow and sediment properties influencing erosion of fine-grained marine sediments : sea floor and laboratory experiments Young, Robert Alexander (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-09)Erosion processes involving fine-grained marine sediments were studied by using an in situ flume to erode undisturbed bottom sediments on the sea floor in Buzzards Bay, a shallow marine embayment off the Massachusetts coast. ...
Structured multiple endosymbiosis of bacteria and archaea in a ciliate from marine sulfidic sediments : a survival mechanism in low oxygen, sulfidic sediments? Edgcomb, Virginia P.; Leadbetter, Edward R.; Bourland, William A.; Beaudoin, David J.; Bernhard, Joan M. (Frontiers Media, 2011-03-25)Marine micro-oxic to sulfidic environments are sites of intensive biogeochemical cycling and elemental sequestration, where prokaryotes are major driving forces mediating carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, and metal ...
