  1. 1. Container vessel maneuvering model in shallow waters and assessment of maneuvering coefficients through system identification

    University essay from KTH/Marina system

    Author : Christos Kostoulas; [2017]
    Keywords : maneuvering theory; container 4DOF maneuvering model; Son and Nomoto; shallow water effects; system identification; maneuvering coefficients; semi empirical equations for maneuvering;

    Abstract : A vessel operating in the real world has to overcome wind, waves and ocean currents. The result of all the above is a motion of 6 degrees of freedom (DOF). READ MORE

  2. 2. Cenozoic history of North Atlantic deep sea carbonate preservation

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för geologiska vetenskaper

    Author : Marcus Länje; [2015]
    Keywords : Carbonate compensation depth; CCD; IODP; ODP; DSDP; Atlantic Ocean; subsidence modeling; Cenozoic; database of sediment lithologies; Google Earth;

    Abstract : Carbonate preservation in the oceans occurs at a depth called the carbonate compensation depth (CCD). The CCD is where the input rate of carbonate from the surface of the ocean is balanced by the dissolution rate. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a System for Long Term Underwater Sensing

    University essay from KTH/Marina system

    Author : Jari Krützfeldt; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The monitoring of the worlds oceans is a fundamental requirement to understand and predict the ongoing climate change. Scientists need reliable long-term data series from regions that are of great interest for understanding the climate change and its consequences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Response of Phytoplankton to Climatic Changes during the Eocene-Oligocene Transition at the North Atlantic ODP Site 612

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lucía Rivero Cuesta; [2015]
    Keywords : Phytoplankton; abundance; coccoliths; silica; Eocene; Oligocene; Fytoplankton; antal; coccoliter; kisel; Eocen; Oligocen; Fitoplancton; abundancia; cocolitos; sílice; Eoceno; Oligoceno;

    Abstract : The development of modern glacial climates occurred during the Eocene-Oligocene transition (34 to 35.5 Ma) when a decrease of atmospheric CO2 led to a global temperature fall. The ocean was deeply affected, both in the surface and the deep-sea, suffering a strong reorganization including currents and phytoplankton distribution. READ MORE

  5. 5. Comparison between two sediment X-ray Fluorescence records of the Late Holocene from Disko Bugt, West Greenland : paleoclimatic and methodological implications,

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Oskar Jäckel; [2009]
    Keywords : Disko Bugt; X-ray fluorescence; mineral magnetism; magnetic susceptibility; paleomagnetism; bromine; productivity; Medieval Warm Period; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Popular summary: X-raying the climate archive of Disko Bugt. Disko Bugt is a large bay in West Greenland north of the Arctic Circle. Because of the influence of the relatively warm ocean current coming from the south; the West Greenland Current, it has a mild climate despite its latitude. READ MORE
