  • Rosengard, Sarah Zhou (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Particulate organic carbon (POC) in the ocean and mobilized by rivers on land transfers -0. 1% of global primary productivity to the deep ocean sediments. This small fraction regulates the long-term carbon cycle by removing ...
  • Le Bras, Isabela Astiz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    The Gulf Stream and Deep Western Boundary Current (DWBC) shape the distribution of heat and carbon in the North Atlantic, with consequences for global climate. This thesis employs a combination of theory, observations and ...
  • Ogden, Kelly Anne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Internal hydraulic jumps in flows with upstream shear are investigated numerically and theoretically. The role of upstream shear has not previously been thoroughly investigated, although it is important in many oceanographic ...
  • Hemingway, Jordon Dennis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Terrestrial organic carbon (OC) erosion, remineralization, transport through river networks, and burial in marine sediments is a major pathway of the global carbon cycle. However, our ability to constrain these processes ...
  • Collins, James R. (James Robert) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    While aerobic respiration is typically invoked as the dominant mass-balance sink for organic matter in the upper ocean, many other biological and abiotic processes can degrade particulate and dissolved substrates on globally ...
