The Dynamics of Water Exchange Between Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound
The Narragansett Bay estuary represents an important natural and economic resource. Narragansett Bay has a long history of scientific study, whichmakes it ideal for understanding the interplayExpand

Observations of wave transformation over a fringing coral reef and the importance of low‐frequency waves and offshore water levels to runup, overwash, and coastal flooding
Many low-lying tropical islands are susceptible to sea level rise and often subjected to overwash and flooding during large wave events. To quantify wave dynamics and wave-driven water levels onExpand

The influence of grain size, grain color, and suspended-sediment concentration on light attenuation: Why fine-grained terrestrial sediment is bad for coral reef ecosystems
Sediment has been shown to be a major stressor to coral reefs globally. Although many researchers have tested the impact of sedimentation on coral reef ecosystems in both the laboratory and the fieldExpand

Powerful turbidity currents driven by dense basal layers
Seafloor sediment flows (turbidity currents) are among the volumetrically most important yet least documented sediment transport processes on Earth. A scarcity of direct observations means that basicExpand

Upwelling rebound, ephemeral secondary pycnoclines, and the creation of a near‐bottom wave guide over the Monterey Bay continental shelf
Several sequential upwelling events were observed in fall 2012, using measurements from the outer half of the continental shelf in Monterey Bay, during which the infiltration of dense water onto theExpand

Linking Direct Measurements of Turbidity Currents to Submarine Canyon-Floor Deposits
Submarine canyons are conduits for episodic and powerful sediment density flows (commonly called turbidity currents) that move globally significant amounts of terrestrial sediment and organic carbonExpand

Sediment and organic carbon transport and deposition driven by internal tides along Monterey Canyon, offshore California
ABSTRACT Submarine canyons are globally important conduits for sediment and organic carbon transport into the deep sea. Using a novel dataset from Monterey Canyon, offshore central California, thatExpand
