  • Economic costs of invasive alien species in the Mediterranean basin 

    Kourantidou, Melina; Cuthbert, Ross N.; Haubrock, Phillip J.; Novoa, Ana; Taylor, Nigel G.; Leroy, Boris; Capinha, César; Renault, David; Angulo, Elena; Diagne, Christophe; Courchamp, Franck (Pensoft Publishers, 2021-07-29)
    nvasive alien species (IAS) negatively impact the environment and undermine human well-being, often resulting in considerable economic costs. The Mediterranean basin is a culturally, socially and economically diverse region, ...
  • Risk averse choices of managed beach widths under environmental uncertainty 

    Jin, Di; Hoagland, Porter; Ashton, Andrew D. (Wiley, 2021-07-26)
    Applying a theoretical geo-economic approach, we examined key factors affecting decisions about the choice of beach width when eroded coastal beaches are being nourished (i.e., when fill is placed to widen a beach). Within ...
  • The call of the emperor penguin: legal responses to species threatened by climate change 

    Jenouvrier, Stephanie; Che-Castaldo, Judy; Wolf, Shaye; Holland, Marika M.; Labrousse, Sara; LaRue, Michelle; Wienecke, Barbara; Fretwell, Peter T.; Barbraud, Christophe; Greenwald, Noah; Stroeve, Julienne; Trathan, Phil N. (Wiley, 2021-08-03)
    Species extinction risk is accelerating due to anthropogenic climate change, making it urgent to protect vulnerable species through legal frameworks in order to facilitate conservation actions that help mitigate risk. Here, ...
  • Deep North Atlantic last glacial maximum salinity reconstruction 

    Homola, Kira; Spivack, Arthur J.; Murray, Richard W.; Pockalny, Robert; D'Hondt, Steven; Robinson, Rebecca (American Geophysical Union, 2021-04-24)
    We reconstruct deep water-mass salinities and spatial distributions in the western North Atlantic during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, 19–26 ka), a period when atmospheric CO2 was significantly lower than it is today. A ...
  • Annually resolved sediments in the classic Clarkia lacustrine deposits (Idaho, USA) during the middle Miocene Climate Optimum 

    Höfig, Daianne; Zhang, Yi Ge; Giosan, Liviu; Leng, Qin; Liang, Jiaqi; Wu, Mengxiao; Miller, Brent; Yang, Hong (Geological Society of America, 2021-04-15)
    The world-renowned Miocene Clarkia paleolake in northern Idaho (USA) is closely associated with Columbia River Basalt Group volcanism. The flood basalt dammed a local drainage system to form the paleolake, which preserved ...
  • Rapid ecosystem-scale consequences of acute deoxygenation on a Caribbean coral reef 

    Johnson, Maggie D.; Scott, Jarrod J.; Leray, Matthieu; Lucey, Noelle; Rodriguez Bravo, Lucia M.; Wied, William L.; Altieri, Andrew H. (Nature Research, 2021-07-26)
    Loss of oxygen in the global ocean is accelerating due to climate change and eutrophication, but how acute deoxygenation events affect tropical marine ecosystems remains poorly understood. Here we integrate analyses of ...
  • Octocoral recruitment surveys on transects at 5 sites on the south shore of St. John, US Virgin Islands, 2014-2019. 

    Lasker, Howard (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: bco-dmo-data@whoi.edu, 2021-10-22)
    This dataset includes species identifications and sizes from octocoral recruitment surveys conducted on transects at five sites on the south shore of St. John, US Virgin Islands from 2014-2019. For a complete list of ...
  • Community science for coastal acidification monitoring and research 

    Gassett, Parker Randall; O’Brien-Clayton, Katie; Bastidas, Carolina; Rheuban, Jennie E.; Hunt, Christopher W.; Turner, Elizabeth; Liebman, Matthew; Silva, Emily; Pimenta, Adam R.; Grear, Jason S.; Motyka, Jackie; McCorkle, Daniel C.; Stancioff, Esperanza; Brady, Damian C.; Strong, Aaron L. (Taylor and Francis, 2021-07-26)
    Ocean and coastal acidification (OCA) present a unique set of sustainability challenges at the human-ecological interface. Extensive biogeochemical monitoring that can assess local acidification conditions, distinguish ...
  • Quantifying the effects of hydrogen on carbon assimilation in a seafloor microbial community associated with ultramafic rocks 

    Coskun, Ömer K.; Vuillemin, Aurèle; Schubotz, Florence; Klein, Frieder; Sichel, Susanna E.; Eisenreich, Wolfgang; Orsi, William D. (Springer Nature, 2021-07-26)
    Thermodynamic models predict that H2 is energetically favorable for seafloor microbial life, but how H2 affects anabolic processes in seafloor-associated communities is poorly understood. Here, we used quantitative 13C DNA ...
  • Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory 

    Cinquino, Eve; Fredericks, Janet J.; Sisson, John D.; Faluotico, Stephen M.; Popenoe, Hugh; Sandwith, Zoe O.; Crockford, E. Taylor; Peacock, Emily E.; Shalapyonok, Alexi; Sosik, Heidi M.; Kirincich, Anthony R.; Edson, James B.; Trowbridge, John H. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2021-10-15)
    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 ...
