High apex predator biomass on remote Pacific islands
On coral reefs in Palmyra—a central Pacific atoll with limited fishing pressure—total fish biomass is 428 and 299% greater than on reefs in nearby Christmas and Fanning Islands. Large apex predators –groupers, sharks, ...
Women in Oceanography : a web site for students, teachers, scientists, and the general public
(Oceanography Society, 2005-03)
In 1999 as the millennium was drawing to a close, we decided that the time was right to introduce a new type of web site highlighting the contributions that women are making to marine science. We envisioned a web site ...
The history of ocean resources : modeling cod biomass using historical records
(Ecological Society of America, 2005-03)
Managing the remnants of the ocean's resources is a critical issue worldwide, but evidence for what constitutes a healthy fish population remains controversial. Here, we use historical sources to understand ecosystem trends ...
Science under sail : ocean science education program combines traditional vessels with state-of-the-art technology
(Oceanography Society, 2004-09)
Sea Education Association (SEA), located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, offers introductory oceanographic instruction in the classroom and hands-on research training at sea to create a unique educational experience for ...
Shipboard ADCP profiles, central equatorial Pacific Ocean, 2003-2012
This data set contains 23 individual NetCDF files, each containing subsurface zonal and meridional velocity profiles (along with time/space coordinates) measured by shipboard ADCP.
The Equatorial Undercurrent and TAO sampling bias from a decade at SEA
(American Meteorological Society, 2014-09)
The NOAA Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) moored array has, for three decades, been a valuable resource for monitoring and forecasting El Niño–Southern Oscillation and understanding physical oceanographic as well as coupled ...
Prokaryotic community structure in algal photosynthetic biofilms from extreme acidic streams in Rio Tinto (Huelva, Spain)
(Spanish Society for Microbiology (SEM), 2008-12)
Four algal photosynthetic biofilms were collected from the Rio Tinto (SW Spain) at four localities: AG, Euglena and Pinnularia biofilms; ANG, Chlorella and Pinnularia biofilms; RI, Cyanidium and Dunaliella biofilms; and ...

Seabirds, gyres and global trends in plastic pollution
Fulmars are effective biological indicators of the abundance of floating plastic marine debris. Long-term data reveal high plastic abundance in the southern North Sea, gradually decreasing to the north at increasing distance ...
Oligotyping reveals community level habitat selection within the genus Vibrio
(Frontiers Media, 2014-11-13)
The genus Vibrio is a metabolically diverse group of facultative anaerobic bacteria, common in aquatic environments and marine hosts. The genus contains several species of importance to human health and aquaculture, including ...
