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 ...
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 ...
Western South Atlantic holocene and glacial deepwater hydrography derived from benthic foraminiferal Cd/Ca and stable carbon isotope data
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
Today, deep waters produced in the North Atlantic are exported through the western South Atlantic. Antarctic intermediate water (AAIW) also enters the Atlantic in this region. Circumpolar deep water (CDW) fills the depths ...
