  • Constructing end-to-end models using ECOPATH data 

    Steele, John H.; Ruzicka, James J. (2011-03)
    The wide availability of ECOPATH data sets provides a valuable resource for the comparative analysis of marine ecosystems. We show how to derive a bottom-up transform from the top-down ECOPATH; couple this to a simple NPZD ...
  • Eddy-resolving simulation of plankton ecosystem dynamics in the California Current System 

    Gruber, Nicolas; Frenzel, Hartmut; Doney, Scott C.; Marchesiello, Patrick; McWilliams, James C.; Moisan, John R.; Oram, John J.; Plattner, Gian-Kasper; Stolzenbach, Keith D. (2006-06-13)
    We study the dynamics of the planktonic ecosystem in the coastal upwelling zone within the California Current System using a three-dimensional, eddy-resolving circulation model coupled to an ecosystem/biogeochemistry ...
  • Physical and biological variables affecting seabird distributions during the upwelling season of the northern California Current 

    Ainley, David G.; Spear, Larry B.; Tynan, Cynthia T.; Barth, John A.; Pierce, Stephen D.; Ford, R. Glenn; Cowles, Timothy J. (2004-08-28)
    As a part of the GLOBEC-Northeast Pacific project, we investigated variation in the abundance of marine birds in the context of biological and physical habitat conditions in the northern portion of the California Current ...
  • Regional impact of submarine canyons during seasonal upwelling 

    Connolly, Thomas P.; Hickey, Barbara M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-02-12)
    A numerical model of the northern California Current System along the coasts of Washington and British Columbia is used to quantify the impact of submarine canyons on upwelling from the continental slope onto the shelf. ...
