Scott; Straneo, Fiamma; Steele, Michael; Woodgate, Rebecca; Yang, Daqing; Yoshikawa, Kenji; Zhang, Tingjun (American Geophysical Union, 2007-11-20)
    Dramatic changes have been observed in the Arctic over the last century. Many of these involve the storage and cycling of fresh water. On land, precipitation and river discharge, lake abundance and size, glacier area and ...
  • Arctic Ocean basin liquid freshwater storage trend 1992–2012 

    Rabe, Benjamin; Karcher, Michael; Kauker, Frank; Schauer, Ursula; Toole, John M.; Krishfield, Richard A.; Pisarev, Sergey; Kikuchi, Takashi; Su, J. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-02-12)
    Freshwater in the Arctic Ocean plays an important role in the regional ocean circulation, sea ice, and global climate. From salinity observed by a variety of platforms, we are able, for the first time, to estimate a ...
  • Arctic Ocean circulation in an idealized numerical model 

    Sugimura, Peter Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09)
    The mid-to-deep Arctic Ocean is generally characterized by a cyclonic circulation, contained along shelves and ridges. Here we analyze the general Arctic circulation using an idealized numerical model consisting of a ...
  • Arctic Ocean warming contributes to reduced polar ice cap 

    Polyakov, Igor V.; Timokhov, Leonid A.; Alexeev, Vladimir A.; Bacon, Sheldon; Dmitrenko, Igor A.; Fortier, Louis; Frolov, Ivan E.; Gascard, Jean-Claude; Hansen, Edmond; Ivanov, Vladimir V.; Laxon, Seymour W.; Mauritzen, Cecilie; Perovich, Donald K.; Shimada, Koji; Simmons, Harper L.; Sokolov, Vladimir T.; Steele, Michael; Toole, John M. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-12)
    Analysis of modern and historical observations demonstrates that the temperature of the intermediate-depth (150–900 m) Atlantic water (AW) of the Arctic Ocean has increased in recent decades. The AW warming has been uneven ...
  • Arctic remote autonomous measurement platform post CEAREX engineering report 

    Peal, Kenneth R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-11)
    A series of instrumented Arctic buoys has been developed which is designed to be deployed in pack ice to measure and record data from meteorological and ocean sensors as well as from an accelerometer package inside the ...
  • Arc–continent collision and the formation of continental crust : a new geochemical and isotopic record from the Ordovician Tyrone Igneous Complex, Ireland 

    Draut, Amy E.; Clift, Peter D.; Amato, Jeffrey M.; Blusztajn, Jerzy S.; Schouten, Hans A. (2008-06-23)
    Collisions between oceanic island-arc terranes and passive continental margins are thought to have been important in the formation of continental crust throughout much of Earth’s history. Magmatic evolution during this ...
  • Are any coastal internal tides predictable? 

    Nash, Jonathan D.; Shroyer, Emily L.; Kelly, Samuel M.; Inall, Mark E.; Duda, Timothy F.; Levine, Murray D.; Jones, Nicole L.; Musgrave, Ruth C. (The Oceanography Society, 2012-06)
    Surface tides are the heartbeat of the ocean. Because they are controlled by Earth's motion relative to other astronomical objects in our solar system, surface tides act like clockwork and generate highly deterministic ebb ...
  • Are deep-ocean-generated surface-wave microseisms observed on land? 

    Bromirski, Peter D.; Stephen, Ralph A.; Gerstoft, Peter (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-07-25)
    Recent studies attribute land double-frequency (DF) microseism observations to deep water generation. Here we show that near-coastal generation is generally the dominant source region. This determination is based on ...
  • Are marine protected areas a red herring or fisheries panacea? 

    Kaiser, Michel J. (National Research Council Canada, 2005-05-31)
    Chronic failures in marine fisheries management have led some to suggest that marine protected areas (MPAs) are the solution to achieve sustainable fisheries. While such systems work for certain habitat-specific and nonmobile ...
  • Are open access journals the answer to high publisher costs? 

    Berteaux, Susan S. (IAMSLIC, 2005)
  • Are there eco-metrics for fisheries? 

    Steele, John H. (2005-11-03)
    Ecosystem based management of marine resources is a worthy ideal. At present, however, the science is unable to measure and relate the fundamental concepts of diversity, productivity and resilience required for management ...
