Qualitative Inquiry as a Method to Extract Personal Experiences: Approach to research into organizational climate change mitigationDownload
Climate change and solutions to solving this wicked problem require a mixed methods research approach that draws on quantitative and qualitative inquiry together. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the applicability (and effectiveness) of a mixed methods approach applied to research...
Recent increases in Arctic freshwater flux affects Labrador Sea convection and Atlantic overturning circulationDownload
The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is an important component of ocean thermohaline circulation. Melting of Greenland’s ice sheet is freshening the North Atlantic; however, whether the augmented freshwater flux is disrupting the AMOC is unclear. Dense Labrador Sea Water (LSW),...
The transport of freshwater is analyzed in an eddy-permitting regional model of the sub-polar North Atlantic, focusing on the export of freshwater (in liquid form) through Davis Strait. The results show that in the model simulations there is a limited exchange of freshwater between the Labrador...
Dynamic carbonate sedimentation in a shallow coastal lagoon: Case study of South Sound, Grand Cayman, British West IndiesDownload
South Sound is a 3.4 km-, shallow (.: 2 m), funnel-shaped lagoon located on the southwest exposed windward margin of Grand Cayman. The composition and distribution of the Thalassia, Sand, Rock Bottom, Brown Algae, Rubble, and Coral Head facies, are controlled by the dynamic interplay between...
Decline and partial rebound of the Labrador Current 1993-2004: Monitoring ocean currents from altimetric and conductivity-temperature-depth dataDownload
Monitoring and understanding of Labrador Current variability is important because it is intimately linked to the meridional overturning circulation and the marine ecosystem off northeast North America. Nevertheless, knowledge of its decadal variability is inadequate because of scarcity of current...
Chassignet, Eric, Lee, Craig M., Bamber, Jonathan L., Curry, Beth, Dukhovskoy, Dmitry S., Timmermans, Mary-Louise, Platov, Gennady, Myers, Paul G., Proshutinsky, Andrey, Hu, Xianmin, Somavilla, Raquel
Accelerating since the early 1990s, the Greenland Ice Sheet mass loss exerts a significant impact on thermohaline processes in the sub-Arctic seas. Surplus freshwater discharge from Greenland since the 1990s, comparable in volume to the amount of freshwater present during the Great Salinity...
First records of syn-diagenetic non-tectonic folding in Quaternary thermogene travertines caused by hydrothermal incremental veining.Download
Alçiçek, M.C., Alçiçek, H., Altunel, E., Arenas, C., Bons, P., Brogi, A., Capezzuoli, E., de Riese, T., Della Porta, G., Gandin, A., Guo, L., Jones, B., Karabacak, V., Kershaw, S., Liotta, D., Mindszenty, A., Pedley, M., Ronchi, P., Swennen, R., Temiz, U.
This study is the first documentation of syn-diagenetic non-tectonic contractional deformations observed in two Pleistocene thermogene travertine deposits from the late Miocene-Pleistocene Tuscan extensional-hydrothermal province (Italy). The deposits consist of primary porous beds hosting...
Cyanobacterial diversity and related sedimentary facies as a function of water flow conditions: Example from the Monasterio de Piedra Natural Park (Spain).Download
The River Piedra in the Monasterio de Piedra Natural Park (NE Spain) is a modern tufa-depositing river that encompasses various depositional environments that are inhabited by different cyanobacterial populations. Molecular (16S rDNA) and morphological analyses of the cyanobacteria from different...
Cave-fills in Miocene-Pliocene strata on Cayman Brac, British West Indies: Implications for the geological evolution of an isolated oceanic island.Download
An 8-m-high wall in a quarry on the west end of Cayman Brac exposes the upper part of the Cayman Formation (Miocene), the lower part of the overlying Pedro Castle Formation (Pliocene), and the Cayman Unconformity, which is a karstic unconformity that separates these formations. The modern-day...
Aragonite and calcite crystals are the fundamental building blocks of calcareous thermal spring deposits. The diverse array of crystal morphologies found in these deposits, which includes monocrystals, mesocrystals, skeletal crystals, dendrites, and spherulites, are commonly precipitated under...
