Geophysical fluid dynamics : notes on the 1960 Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1960)
Development and evaluation of electromechanical cables for deep sea buoy applications
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-01)
Electromechanical (E/M cables have been developed in order to satisfy the growing need for real time data telemetry from oceanographic moorings. Several E/M cable designs have been implemented with the cooperation of ...
Hurricane impacts on the Caribbean coastal/marine environment : using scientific assessment to plan for the future
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-09)
The passage of Hurricane Hugo through the eastern Caribbean provided a unique opportunity for multidisciplinary study of (1) the effects of severe storms on tropical coastal and marine ecosystems, and (2) the physical and ...
Analysis of flow within the coastal boundary layer off Long Island, New York
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-04)
From 1974 through 1978 a series of intensive measurements were made in the coastal waters within 12 km of Long Island. The data were derived from two sources: a mooring array from which time series of temperature, ...
Bottom-mounted profiling winch
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-03)
A winch has been developed which can be free-dropped to the ocean bottom in full ocean depths. The winch is powered by self-contained batteries and can be programmed to cycle self-recording instruments from close to the ...
Conceptual models of the climate : 2003 program of study, Non-Newtonian geophysical fluid dynamics
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2004-02)
Non-Newtonian fluids occur commonly in our world. These fluids, such as toothpaste, saliva, oils, mud and lava, exhibit a number of behaviors that are different from Newtonian fluids and have a number of additional ...
Coastal Ocean Processes : a science prospectus
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-04)
CoOP (Coastal Ocean Processes) is an organization meant to study major interdisciplinary scientific problems in the coastal ocean. Its goal is "to obtain a new level of quantitative understanding of the processes that ...
Hydrodynamic baseline measurements in New Bedford Harbor
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-12)
Thls report includes a compilation of hydrodynamic data obtained in New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts (Figue 1-1), for the purpose of providing baseline information for the selection of an outfall site for a seondary ...
Tides of Massachusetts and Cape Cod Bays
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)
The Massachusetts Bays Program made bottom pressure and water velocity observations in Massachusetts and Cape Cod Bays during 1990 and 1991. In the Bays, the sea surface elevation appeared to rise and fall in phase with ...
WHOI Cable v2.0 : time domain numerical simulation of moored and towed oceanographic systems
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-07)
This report describes version 2.0 of a numerical program for analyzing the statics and dynamics of cable structures commonly encountered in oceanographic engineering practice. The numerical program, WHOI Cable, features a ...
