  • Chalk-Ex—fate of CaCO3 particles in the mixed layer : evolution of patch optical properties 

    Balch, William M.; Plueddemann, Albert J.; Bowler, B. C.; Drapeau, D. T. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-07-18)
    The fate of particles in the mixed layer is of great relevance to the global carbon cycle as well as to the propagation of light in the sea. We conducted four manipulative field experiments called “Chalk-Ex” in which known ...
  • Challenges to understanding the dynamic response of Greenland's marine terminating glaciers to oceanic and atmospheric forcing

Tad; Price, Stephen F.; Rignot, Eric; Scambos, Ted; Truffer, Martin; Vieli, Andreas (American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
    The recent retreat and speedup of outlet glaciers, as well as enhanced surface melting around the ice sheet margin, have increased Greenland's contribution to sea level rise to 0.6 ± 0.1 mm yr−1 and its discharge of ...
  • Chaotic advection and mixing in a western boundary current-recirculation system : laboratory experiments 

    Deese, Heather E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2001-02)
