North River estuary 2017 dataset

W. Rockwell Geyer, David Ralston, Wouter Kranenburg, Adrian Mikhail Garcia & Tong Bo
These are the observational data collected in 2017 from the North River estuary. Data files include the long-term (LT) CTD and Aquadopp measurements from April to July, the short-term (STI from April to May and STII in late July) CTD measurements, eight shipboard CTD and ADCP surveys in April, May and July, the ADV measurements in late July, the North River mid-estuary region bathymetry, and the North River discharge (from USGS measurements).

2017 HF Radar observations off the East Taiwan Coast

Anthony Kirincich, Yu-hung Hsiao & Yiing Jang Yang
High-frequency radar-based observations of surface currents along the east coast of Taiwan, obtained over a 50-day period in early 2017, are used to examine the occurrence, generation, and downstream advection of submesoscale eddies in the Kuroshio. Measured at an effective depth of 2 m and radial resolution of 3 km from four land-based HF radar systems spanning an 250-km along-stream distance, the surface current observations reveal the instantaneous position of the Kuroshio on hourly time...

Images of cellular ultrastructure of benthic foraminifera from Arctic seeps

Joan Bernhard, Veronique Le Roux & Jonathan Martin
Dissociation of methane hydrates due to ocean warming releases methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, to the atmosphere. Dissociation of gas hydrates may have led to rapid and dramatic environmental changes in the past. Thus, understanding the impact of those events requires information about their timing and magnitudes. While the foraminiferal fossil record provides a powerful tool to understand past environmental conditions, seep-endemic foraminifera are unknown, which limits evaluation of seep-specific information. However, geographically widespread benthic...

IFCB Plankton Image Time Series at the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO)

Heidi Sosik, Joe Futrelle, Emily E. Peacock, Taylor Crockford, Alexi Shalapyonok & Robert J. Olson
Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) deployments have been conducted since June 2006 at the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO; 41° 19.5’ N, 70° 34.0’ W). IFCB, an automated submersible imaging-in-flow cytometer, is specially designed to operate in the ocean and image plankton and other particulate material approximately 5 to 200 micrometers in length. In conjunction with image acquisition, IFCB also uses a diode laser to measure the chlorophyll fluorescence and light scattering associated each imaged target. IFCB...

Horizontal Stirring over the Northeast U.S. Continental Shelf: the Spatial and Temporal Evolution of Surface Eddy Kinetic Energy

Stratification, Wind, and Waves on the Inner shelf of Martha’s Vineyard (SWWIM)

Steven Lentz
Time series of current velocity, water temperature, and salinity profiles, and near-bottom water depth from the 7-m, 12-m, 17-m, and 27-m site of an inner-shelf array deployed as part of the Stratification, Wind, and Waves on the Inner shelf of Martha’s Vineyard (SWWIM) study. There were 6 deployments of an array of four sites across the inner-shelf south of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. The four sites are designated by nominal depth 7-m, 12-m (MVCO node), 17-m...

Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory

Eve Cinquino, Janet J. Fredericks, John D. Sisson, Stephen M. Faluotico, Hugh Popenoe, Zoe O. Sandwith, E. Taylor Crockford, Emily E. Peacock, Alexi Shalapyonok, Heidi M. Sosik, Anthony R Kirincich, James B. Edson & John H. Trowbridge
Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory (MVCO) is a leading research and engineering facility operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. MVCO has been collecting ocean and atmospheric data at 3 sites on and near Martha's Vineyard since 2001. A meteorological mast (met mast) on South Beach in Edgartown, MA has collected atmospheric data since May 31 2001. An Air Sea Interaction Tower (ASIT) has been collecting atmospheric and subsurface oceanic data since August 5, 2004. A seafloor...

WHOI MetOcean Data Initiative 2016-2021

Anthony Kirincich & Eve Cinquino
This data was collected by a team led by Kirincich as part of a Metocean monitoring campaign sponsored by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC). The campaign was designed to observe key atmospheric and ocean parameters at an existing offshore platform in the proximity of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Wind Energy Areas. The campaign supported the purchase and installation of a LIDAR wind profiler, two cup anemometers and a wind direction vane at the...

Hollow Core Fiber Methane Sensor

Anna Michel & Jason Kapit
We have developed a hollow core fiber optic sensor capable of measuring dissolved methane gas in liquids using only nanoliters of sample gas. The sensor is based on an anti-resonant hollow core fiber combined with a permeable capillary membrane inlet which extracts gas from the liquid for analysis.

Investigating thermal physiology in large whales via aerial infrared thermography

Gina Lonati, Daniel Zitterbart, Carolyn A. Miller, Peter Corkeron, Christin Murphy & Michael J. Moore
The critically endangered status of North Atlantic right whales (NARWs, Eubalaena glacialis) warrants the development of new, less invasive technology to monitor the health of individuals. Combined with advancements in remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS, commonly “drones”), infrared thermography (IRT) is being increasingly used to detect and count marine mammals and study their physiology. We conducted RPAS-based IRT over NARWs in Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, USA in 2017 and 2018. Observations demonstrated three particularly useful...

Data from the 2018 dye release cruise south of Martha’s Vineyard, MA

Irina Rypina, Anthony Kirincich & Thomas Peacock
On Aug 16-17, 2018 a rhodamine dye experiment was conducted in the coastal ocean south of Martha’s Vineyard, MA. One of the experiment’s aims was to investigate the exchanges, or the absence of such, between the mixed layer and the ocean underneath over a time scale of about a day.

Sentry Underway Data for Cruise AT37-13, Sentry Dives 429-441

This package is the complete data package prepared by the Sentry team while at sea. Some parts of the data package will be available in other locations. We will update the metadata to include references to these data as they are available. This package contains data from Sentry Dives 429-441. These dives were done as part of AT37-13, aboard the R/V Atlantis in 2017. More information about AT37-13 is available from the Rolling Deck to...
