  • Alexandrium fundyense cysts in the Gulf of Maine : long-term time series of abundance and distribution, and linkages to past and future blooms 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Keafer, Bruce A.; Kleindinst, Judith L.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Martin, Jennifer L.; Norton, Kerry; Pilskaln, Cynthia H.; Smith, Juliette L.; Sherwood, Christopher R.; Butman, Bradford (2013-10)
    Here we document Alexandrium fundyense cyst abundance and distribution patterns over nine years (1997 and 2004-2011) in the coastal waters of the Gulf of Maine (GOM) and identify linkages between those patterns and several ...
  • High concentrations of marine snow and diatom algal mats in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre : implications for carbon and nitrogen cycles in the oligotrophic ocean 

    Pilskaln, Cynthia H.; Villareal, Tracy A.; Dennett, Mark R.; Darkangelo-Wood, C.; Meadows, G. (2005-08-02)
    A Video Plankton Recorder (VPR) and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) were utilized on three cruises in the oligotrophic North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) between 1995 and 2002 to quantify the size and abundance of marine ...
  • RAPID : research on automated plankton identification 

    Benfield, Mark C.; Grosjean, Philippe; Culverhouse, Phil F.; Irigoien, Xabier; Sieracki, Michael E.; Lopez-Urrutia, Angel; Dam, Hans G.; Hu, Qiao; Davis, Cabell S.; Hansen, Allen; Pilskaln, Cynthia H.; Riseman, Edward M.; Schultz, Howard; Utgoff, Paul E.; Gorsky, Gabriel (Oceanography Society, 2007-06)
    When Victor Hensen deployed the first true plankton1 net in 1887, he and his colleagues were attempting to answer three fundamental questions: What planktonic organisms are present in the ocean? How many of each type ...
  • A red tide of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine 

    McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Brosnahan, Michael L.; Couture, Darcie A.; He, Ruoying; Keafer, Bruce A.; Manning, James P.; Martin, Jennifer L.; Pilskaln, Cynthia H.; Townsend, David W.; Anderson, Donald M. (2013-04-15)
    In early July 2009, an unusually high concentration of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense occurred in the western Gulf of Maine, causing surface waters to appear reddish brown to the human eye. The discolored ...
  • Sediment flux and recent paleoclimate in Jordan Basin, Gulf of Maine 

    Keigwin, Lloyd D.; Pilskaln, Cynthia H. (2014-10-09)
    We report planktonic foraminiferal fluxes (accumulation rates) and oxygen isotopes (δ18O) from a nine-month sediment trap deployment, and δ18O from three sediment cores in Jordan Basin, Gulf of Maine. The sediment trap was ...
  • Upward nitrate transport by phytoplankton in oceanic waters : balancing nutrient budgets in oligotrophic seas 

    Villareal, Tracy A.; Pilskaln, Cynthia H.; Montoya, Joseph P.; Dennett, Mark R. (PeerJ, 2014-03-13)
    In oceanic subtropical gyres, primary producers are numerically dominated by small (1–5 µm diameter) pro- and eukaryotic cells that primarily utilize recycled nutrients produced by rapid grazing turnover in a highly efficient ...
