Influences on the oceanic biogeochemical cycling of the hybrid-type metals, cobalt, iron, and manganese
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
Trace metal cycling is one of many processes that influence ocean ecosystem dynamics. Cobalt, iron, and manganese are redox active trace metal micro-nutrients with oceanic distributions that are influenced by both biological ...
Zinc and cadmium in benthic foraminifera as tracers of ocean paleochemistry
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
Benthic foraminiferal δ13C, Cd/Ca, and Ba/Ca are important tools for reconstructing nutrient distributions, and thus ocean circulation, on glacial-interglacial timescales. However, each tracer has its own "artifacts" that ...
The influence of geothermal sources on deep ocean temperature, salinity, and flow fields
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988)
This thesis is a study of the effect of geothermal sources on the deep circulation, temperature and salinity fields. In Chapter 1 background material is given on the strength and distribution of geothermal heating. In ...
