    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. ...
  • On the nature of estuarine circulation : part I (chapters 3 and 4) 

    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 ...

  • Optimal source localization and tracking using arrays with uncertainties in sensor locations 

    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" ...
