  • 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 ...
  • Goldsmith, Roger A.; Richardson, Philip L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-02)
    The transatlantic route of Columbus was simulated incorporating historical winds, currents and hypothetical magnetic variation in order to estimate where the first landfall occured. Earlier simulations using an 1899 map ...
  • McPeak, Sean P.; D'Spain, Gerald L.; Stephen, Ralph A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-05)
    On the Ocean Bottom Seismometer Augmentation to the Philippine Sea Experiment (OBSAPS, April-May, 2011, R/V Revelle), a VLA and six OBSs were deployed to listen to an active acoustic source, a J15-3. This report describes ...
  • Fredericks, Janet J.; Trowbridge, John H.; Agrawal, Yogesh C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-02)
    To provide observational data for analysis of near-bottom, wave-induced flows, a downward-looking laser Doppler velocimeter (LDV) was deployed to profile the near-bed velocity structure of a six meter water column at a ...
  • Joyce, Terrence M.; Dean, Jerome P.; McCartney, Michael S.; Millard, Robert C.; Moller, Donald A.; Voorhis, A.; Dahm, C.; Georgi, D.; Kullenberg, G.; Toole, John M.; Zenk, Walter (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-11)
    During March/April 1976 the small-scale structure of the Antarctic Polar Front was observed in the Drake Passage. The observations were part of the International Southern Ocean Studies (ISOS) program called FDRAke 76. The ...
  • Bowlin, James B.; Spiesberger, John L.; Duda, Timothy F.; Freitag, Lee E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-10)
    A new computer program for accurate calculation of acoustic ray paths through a range-varing ocean sound channel has been written. It is based on creating a model of the speed of sound in the ocean, consistent with input ...
  • Stephen, Ralph A.; Kemp, John N.; McPeak, Sean P.; Bolmer, S. Thompson; Carey, Scott; Aaron, Ernie; Campbell, Richard L.; Moskovitz, Brianne; Calderwood, John; Cohen, Ben; Worcester, Peter F.; Dzieciuch, Matthew A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-09)
    The Ocean Bottom Seismometer Augmentation to the Philippine Sea Experiment (OBSAPS, April-May, 2011, R/V Revelle) addresses the coherence and depth dependence of deep-water ambient noise and signals. During the 2004 NPAL ...
  • Worthington, L. V. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1959-11)
    In August and September 1958 a number of oceanographic sections were made in the R.R.S. DISCOVERY II, Captain James Gray, under the scientific leadership of H. F. P. Herdman. These sections comprise part of a joint ...
  • Price, James F.; Sanford, Thomas B.; Forristall, George Z. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
    Field observations of the ocean's forced stage response to three hurricanes, Norbert (1984), Josephine (1984) and Gloria (1985), are analyzed and presented in a storm-centered coordinate system. All three hurricanes had ...
  • Welch, Christopher Slocombe (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-02)
    The method used by N. P. Fofonoff for estimating wind stress curl from surface atmospheric pressure maps is developed for use with the National Meterological Center analysis grid. A formula is developed relating the wind ...
  • Butman, Bradford (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-04)
    Massachusetts Bay is a coastal Bay 100 km long and 40 km wide located in the western Gulf of Maine. The Bay is closed by land to the north, west and south, but is open to the Gulf to the east; the opening is partially ...
  • Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1954-08)
    Downdrafts, exhibiting speeds and mass transports comparable to those of the main updrafts, are a common feature of the cumulus clouds studied by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's FBI aircraft in the trade-wind region. ...
  • Stommel, Henry M.; Former, Harlow G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1952-10)
    The reader will quickly see that the subject matter of Chapter 3 is confined to the hydraulics of sharply stratified media, whereas real estuaries are always more or less diffusely stratified. What is more, no discussion ...
  • Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1957-01)
    Comparison of the lower trade-wind air under conditions of strong versus weak circulation is continued, Moisture and thermal structure and transports from the top of the mixed layer up to the trade-wind inversion are ...
  • Malkus, Joanne Starr (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1956-08)
    The moisture and temperature structure of the trade-wind mixed layer are compared under conditions of strong versus weak trade. The data used are two series of aircraft psychrograph soundings made over the ocean near ...
  • Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-12)
    This is the second and final volume of a report that describes some of my investigations over the last 35 years or so into low-frequency ocean current structures, a topic which I will call the World Ocean Circulation ...
  • Schmitz, William J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)
    This is the first volume of a "final report" that summarizes, often in a speculative vein, what I have learned over the past 35 years or so about large-scale, low-frequency ocean currents, primarily with support from the ...
  • Segal, Mordechai; Weinstein, Ehud (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-08)
    We develop a computationally efficient iterative algorithm for source localization and tracking using active/passive arrays with uncertainties in sensor locations. We suppose that the available data consist of time delay, ...
  • Malkus, Willem V. R.; Berry, Mary Evans (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-05)
    Our principal lecturer, Stephen Childress, can be seen emerging from the "magnetic cottage" he constructed to edify those of us who attended G.F.D. '87. His central theme was the kinematic properties of the "fast" ...
  • Anderson, Steven P.; Huang, Kelan; Brink, Nancy J.; Baumgartner, Mark F.; Weller, Robert A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-03)
    The surface mooring component of the NOAA Pan American Climate Study (PACS) took place from April 1997 to September 1998 in the eastern tropical Pacific. PACS was a NOAA funded study with the goal of investigating links ...
