    To better understand the current carbon cycle and potentially detect its change in the rapidly changing Arctic Ocean, we examined sinking particles collected quasi-continuously over a period of 7 years (2004–2011) by ...
  • Temporal characteristics of abyssal finescale motions above rough bathymetry 

    Toole, John M. (American Meteorological Society, 2007-03)
    Current-meter data from a two-year mooring within a fracture zone on the western flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in the South Atlantic Ocean are reported. The mooring, deployed in conjunction with the Brazil Basin Tracer ...
  • Temporal evolution of tritium-³He age in the North Atlantic : implications for thermocline ventilation 

    Robbins, Paul E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1997-09)
    This thesis is a study of the physical mechanisms that ventilate the subtropical thermocline of the eastern North Atlantic. The starting point is an analysis of the existent historical database of natural and anthropogenic ...
  • Temporal, spatial and pulse instabilities of the Gulf Stream 

    Ni, Bingjian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-06)
    This thesis addresses the issue, "Which approach to instabilities-temporal, spatial or pulse theory- is the most appropriate model for the Gulf Stream?" I also address the question of how the observations might be compared ...
  • Ten-inch glass ball ARGOS transmitter using Seimac Ltd. platform terminal transmitter 

    Worrilow, Scott E.; Bradshaw, Kenton M. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-07)
    This is a description of the design and motivation for the newest generation of submersible ARGOS transmitters currently used by the Subsurface Mooring Operations Group at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as well ...
  • Testing the physical oceanographic implications of the suggested sudden Black Sea infill 8400 years ago 

    Siddall, M.; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Helfrich, Karl R.; Giosan, Liviu (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-17)
    We apply a shock-capturing numerical model based on the single-layer shallow water equations to an idealized geometry of the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara in order to test the implications of a suggested sudden Black ...
  • Thermally driven circulation 

    Nelken, Haim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1987-08)
    Several problems connected by the theme of thermal forcing are addressed herein. The main topic is the stratification and flow field resulting from imposing a specified heat flux on a fluid that is otherwise confined to ...
  • The thermocline and current structure in subtropical/subpolar basins 

    Huang, Rui Xin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-05)
    Part one of this thesis discusses the structure of the thermocline and the current pattern within a two-layer model. The corresponding flow field is explored as the amount of water in the upper layer is gradually reduced ...
  • Thermoconvective eddies in air : application to meteorology 

    Avsec, Dusan (E. Blondel la Rougery : Gauthier-VillarsWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1939)

  • Thermohaline convection at density ratios below one : a new regime for salt fingers 

    Schmitt, Raymond W. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2011-07-01)
    New experimental results on haline convection show a surprising preference for narrow fingers over large-scale convection when even a small stabilizing temperature gradient is present (Hage and Tilgner, 2010). This regime ...
