This report describes calibration techniques developed over the past three years for the WHOI/Brown CTD in the Moored Array Program. Comparison is made with classical methods of hydrography for stations obtained in the MODE-1 density program. Methods for temperature lag correction and conversion of conductivity to salinity are given.

(2006-02)A recently published radiocarbon calibration curve extending to 50,000 cal BP (Fairbanks et al. 2005) is purportedly superior to that generated by the IntCal working group beyond the end of the tree-ring data at 12,400 ...
Global temperature calibration of the alkenone unsaturation index (UK′37) in surface waters and comparison with surface sediments Conte, Maureen H.; Sicre, Marie-Alexandrine; Ruhlemann, Carsten; Weber, John C.; Schulte, Sonja; Schulz-Bull, Detlef; Blanz, Thomas (American Geophysical Union, 2006-02-07)In this paper, we compile the current surface seawater C37 alkenone unsaturation (UK′37) measurements (n=629, −1 to 30°C temperature range) to derive a global, field-based calibration of UK′37 with alkenone production ...
Apotsos, Alex; Raubenheimer, Britt; Elgar, Steve; Guza, R. T. (2007-10-04)To provide coastal engineers and scientists with a detailed inter-comparison of widely used parametric wave transformation models, several models are tested and calibrated with extensive observations from 6 field experiments ...
