Structure of the western Somali Basin
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1967-07)
The western Somali Basin in the northwestern Indian Ocean is covered by thick deposits of terrigenous sediments. Seismic reflection profiles show, however, the northern and southern parts to be very different. The northern ...
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 ...
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 ...
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)
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 ...
United States electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) test-bed project : system requirements specification
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-08)
In 1989 the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a provisional performance Standard for ECDIS (MSC/Circ. 515). This standard defines an electronic chart display and ...
Expendable oceanographic mooring (XMOOR)
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-04)
An expendable, self-deploying mooring (XMOOR) for shallow water applications has been developed to address Navy requirements for environmental monitoring. The project has been conducted jointly between the Woods Hole ...
Pan American Climate Study (PACS) mooring recovery and deployment cruise report : R/V Thomas Thompson cruise number 73, 28 November to 26 December 1997
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1998-08)
Three surface moorings were recovered and redeployed during R/V Thomas Thompson cruise number 73 in the eastern equatorial Pacific as pan of the Pan American Climate Study (PACS). PACS is a NOAA-funded study with the goal ...
Extracting wind sea and swell from directional wave spectra derived from a bottom-mounted ADCP
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-07)
Recent advances in processing velocity data from bottom-mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) offer the capability of partitioning directional wave specctra of surface wave height in order to separate locally ...
