  • Linz, Marianna Katherine (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    The circulation of air in the stratosphere is important for the distribution of radiatively-important trace gases, such as ozone and water vapor, and other chemical species, including ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons. ...
  • Stevens, Laura A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Seasonal fluxes of meltwater control ice-flow processes across the Greenland Ice Sheet ablation zone and subglacial discharge at marine-terminating outlet glaciers. With the increase in annual ice sheet meltwater production ...
  • Agard, John Vincent (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Most of Earth's strongest atmospheric convection occurs over the continents, where potential energy is stored over time in metastable vertical profiles, only to be released rapidly by severe storms. In contrast to ...
  • Bauer, Ann M., Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis examines critical aspects of the terrestrial environment that have resulted in a habitable planetary surface: the establishment of the continental crust and the progressive rise of an oxygenated atmosphere. The ...
  • Tal, Yuval, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Faults are rough at all scales and can be described as self-affine fractals. This deviation from planarity results in geometric asperities and a locally heterogeneous stress field, which affect the nucleation and propagation ...
