  • Smith, Peter C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1973-09)
    This thesis presents an investigation of the dynamics of bottom boundary currents in the ocean. The major emphasis is to develop simple mathematical models in which various dynamical features of these complex geophysical ...
  • Bumpus, Dean F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-02)
    This report responds to an invitation of the National Marine Fisheries Service, Northeast Fisheries Center in which the author was asked to report on the present knowledge of oceanography of Massachusetts Bay and vicinity. ...
  • Fofonoff, Nick P.; Hayes, S. P.; Millard, Robert C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1974-12)
    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 ...
  • Hendry, Ross MacRae (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-04)
    This thesis reports on an investigation into the structure, energetics and propagation of tidal frequency internal waves. Data from Site D, near the New England continental slope, Muir Seamount northeast of Bermuda, and ...
  • Leaman, Kevin Douglas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-06)
    A set of vertical profiles of horizontal ocean currents, obtained by electro-magnetic profilers in the Atlantic Ocean southwest of Bermuda in the spring of 1973, has been analyzed in order to study the vertical structure ...
  • Bryden, Harry L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-07)
    The local dynamics of low-frequency motions in the MODE region are investigated from three arrays of moored measurements of current and temperature. Tests for lowest-order balances of horizontal momentum, mass, heat, heat ...
  • Kim, Kuh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-08)
    This thesis is made of two separate, but interrelated parts. In Part I the instability of a baroclinic Rossby wave in a two-layer ocean of inviscid fluid without topography, is investigated and its results are applied ...
  • Haidvogel, Dale B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-04)
    Two numerical applications of two-level quasigeostrophic theory are used to investigate the interrelationships of the mean and mesoscale eddy fields in a closed-basin ocean model. The resulting techniques provide a more ...
  • Moller, Donald A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-06)
    This report describes computer program NOYFB, a method of determining the static configuration of sub-surface oceanographic moorings for the purposes of system design and analysis of performance. The program is written ...
  • Heinmiller, Robert H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-08)
    This report covers the techniques of deploying and recovering the moorings used by the Buoy Project at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. A brief description of the moorings and associated hardware is included. Deck ...
  • Richman, James G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-09)
    The temporal and spatial variability of low frequency moored temperature and velocity observations, obtained as part of the Mid-Ocean Dynamics Experiment (MODE), are analyzed to study the kinematics and energetics of ...
  • Eriksen, Charles Curtis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1976-09)
    Measurements of horizontal and vertical current by propeller cluster current meters and temperature by thermistors mounted on a rigid array 8 m high and 20 m long moored in the oceanic main thermocline near Bermuda are ...
  • 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 ...
  • Flagg, Charles Noel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-04)
    A 37 day long field program was carried out in March 1974 on the New England continental shelf break to study the current and hydrographic structure and variability on the shelf and in the shelf/slope front. A second ...
  • Ruddick, Barry Raymond (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1977-04)
    A total of four moorings from POLYMODE Array I and II were analyzed in an investigation of internal wavefield-mean flow interactions. In particular, evidence for wave-mean flow interaction was sought by searching for ...
  • 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 ...
  • Firing, Eric (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-08)
    A two-layer linear analytic model is used to study the response of the mid-latitude ocean to the seasonal variation of the windstress. The most important component of the response is a barotropic quasi-steady Sverdrup ...
  • Needell, Gerald J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-11)
    The distribution of dissolved silica in the deep western North Atlantic Ocean is presented. The potential temperature-dissolved silica relationship is compared with the potential temperature salinity relationship in the ...
  • Ou, Hsien Wang (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-04)
    Observational work by Thompson (1977) and others has demonstrated that free topographic Rossby waves propagate northward up the continental rise south of New England. To study the dynamical implications of these waves ...
  • May, Paul Wesley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-05)
    Concern with the impact of human activities on the coastal region of the world's oceans has elicited interest in the so-called "coastal boundary layer"-that band of water adjacent to the coast where ocean currents ...
