Geophysical and geochemical constraints on the evolution of oceanic lithosphere from formation to subduction
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
This thesis investigates the evolution of the oceanic lithosphere in a broad sense from formation to subduction, in a focused case at the ridge, and in a focused case proximal to subduction. In general, alteration of the ...
Cross-shelf circulation and momentum and heat balances over the inner continental shelf near Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
The water circulation and evolution of water temperature over the inner continental shelf are investigated using observations of water velocity, temperature, density, and bottom pressure; surface gravity waves; wind stress; ...
Slope/shelf circulation and cross-slope/shelf transport out of a bay driven by eddies from the open ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
Interaction between the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and the continental slope/shelf in the Marguerite Bay and west Antarctic Peninsula is examined as interaction between a wind-driven channel flow and a zonally uniform ...
