      Dougherty, Martin E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-08)
      Seismic studies of the oceanic crust, both experimental and theoretical, often assume a flat seafloor and laterally homogeneous crust. This is done regardless of the appearance in seismic data of obvious effects due to ...

    • Ocean climate variability in the eastern North Atlantic during interglacial marine isotope stage 11 : a partial analogue to the Holocene? 

      de Abreu, Lucia; Abrantes, Fatima G.; Shackleton, Nicholas J.; Tzedakis, Polychronis C.; McManus, Jerry F.; Oppo, Delia W.; Hall, Michael A. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-08-30)
      Similar orbital geometry and greenhouse gas concentrations during marine isotope stage 11 (MIS 11) and the Holocene make stage 11 perhaps the best geological analogue period for the natural development of the present ...
    • Ocean rises are products of variable mantle composition, temperature and focused melting 

      Dick, Henry J. B.; Zhou, Huaiyang (2014-12)
      Ocean ridges, where Earth’s tectonic plates are pulled apart, vary from more than 5- km depth in the Arctic to 750 m above sea level in Iceland. This huge relief is generally attributed to mantle plumes underlying mantle ...
    • Ocean Seismic Network Pilot Experiment 

      Stephen, Ralph A.; Spiess, Fred N.; Collins, John A.; Hildebrand, John A.; Orcutt, John A.; Peal, Kenneth R.; Vernon, Frank L.; Wooding, Frank B. (2003-10-31)
      The primary goal of the Ocean Seismic Network Pilot Experiment (OSNPE) was to learn how to make high quality broadband seismic measurements on the ocean bottom in preparation for a permanent ocean seismic network. The ...
    • Oceanic evidence of climate change in southern Australia over the last three centuries 

      Thresher, Ronald E.; Rintoul, Stephen R.; Koslow, J. Anthony; Weidman, Christopher R.; Adkins, Jess F.; Proctor, Craig (American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-13)
      Chemical analysis of deepwater octocorals collected at 1000 m depth off southern Australia indicates long-term cooling, beginning in the mid-18th century. This cooling appears to reflect shoaling of isotherms along the ...
    • Oceanic lithosphere magnetization : marine magnetic investigations of crustal accretion and tectonic processes in mid-ocean ridge environments 

      Williams, Clare M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
      The origin of symmetric alternating magnetic polarity stripes on the seafloor is investigated in two marine environments; along the ridge axis of the fast spreading East Pacific Rise (EPR) (9º 25’-9º 55’N) and at Kane ...
    • Oceanography : oxygen and climate dynamics 

      Doney, Scott C.; Karnauskas, Kristopher B. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-09)
      Low oxygen levels in tropical oceans shape marine ecosystems and biogeochemistry with climate change expected to expand these regions. Now, a study indicates that regional dynamics control trop ...
