  • How the oceanographic community created a National Oceanographic Partnership Program 

    Watkins, James D.; Schaff, Terrence R.; Spinrad, Richard W. (Oceanography Society, 2009-06)
    On this tenth anniversary of the National Oceanographic Partnership Program, and as our nation embarks on a broad set of critical societal initiatives, it is valuable to review the accomplishments of the program, and ...
  • A comparison of filtration rates among pelagic tunicates using kinematic measurements 

    Sutherland, Kelly R.; Madin, Laurence P. (2009-11)
    Salps have higher filtration rates than most other holoplankton, and are capable of packaging and exporting primary production from surface waters. A method of kinematic analysis was employed to accurately measure salp ...
  • Filtration of submicrometer particles by pelagic tunicates 

    Sutherland, Kelly R.; Madin, Laurence P.; Stocker, Roman (2010-07)
    Salps are common in oceanic waters and have higher per individual filtration rates than any other zooplankton filter feeder. Though salps are centimeters in length, feeding via particle capture occurs on a fine, mucous ...
  • The remarkable squidworm is an example of discoveries that await in deep-pelagic habitats 

    Osborn, Karen J.; Madin, Laurence P.; Rouse, Greg W. (2010-11)
    An intriguing new annelid, Teuthidodrilus samae (Annelida, Cirratuliformia) gen. and sp. nov., was observed and collected during deep water column exploration of the western Celebes Sea. The Celebes Sea is a deep pocket ...
  • Study of marine ecosystems and biogeochemistry now and in the future : examples of the unique contributions from space 

    Yoder, James A.; Doney, Scott C.; Siegel, David A.; Wilson, Cara (Oceanography Society, 2010-12)
    Ocean color remote sensing has profoundly influenced how oceanographers think about marine ecosystems and their variability in space and time. Satellite ocean color radiometry (OCR) provides a unique perspective for ...
  • Impact of phytoplankton community size on a linked global ocean optical and ecosystem model 

    Mouw, Colleen B.; Yoder, James A.; Doney, Scott C. (2011-01)
    We isolated the effect phytoplankton cell size has on varying remote sensing reflectance spectra (Rrs(λ)) in the presence of optically active constituents by using optical and radiative transfer models linked in an offline ...
  • Questioning the rise of gelatinous zooplankton in the world's oceans 

    Condon, Robert H.; Graham, William M.; Duarte, Carlos M.; Pitt, Kylie A.; Lucas, Cathy H.; Haddock, Steven H. D.; Sutherland, Kelly R.; Robinson, Kelly L.; Dawson, Michael N.; Decker, Mary Beth; Mills, Claudia E.; Purcell, Jennifer E.; Malej, Alenka; Mianzan, Hermes; Uye, Shin-Ichi; Gelcich, Stefan; Madin, Laurence P. (American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2012-02)
    During the past several decades, high numbers of gelatinous Zooplankton species have been reported in many estuarine and coastal ecosystems. Coupled with media-driven public perception, a paradigm has evolved in which the ...
  • Is global ocean sprawl a cause of jellyfish blooms? 

    Duarte, Carlos M.; Pitt, Kylie A.; Lucas, Cathy H.; Purcell, Jennifer E.; Uye, Shin-Ichi; Robinson, Kelly L.; Brotz, Lucas; Decker, Mary Beth; Sutherland, Kelly R.; Malej, Alenka; Madin, Laurence P.; Mianzan, Hermes; Gili, Josep-Maria; Fuentes, Veronica; Atienza, Dacha; Pages, Francesc; Breitburg, Denise; Malek, Jennafer; Graham, William M.; Condon, Robert H. (Ecological Society of America, 2012-09-07)
    Jellyfish (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) blooms appear to be increasing in both intensity and frequency in many coastal areas worldwide, due to multiple hypothesized anthropogenic stressors. Here, we propose that the proliferation ...
  • Regional to global assessments of phytoplankton dynamics from the SeaWiFS mission 

    Siegel, David A.; Behrenfeld, Michael J.; Maritorena, S.; McClain, C. R.; Antoine, David; Bailey, S. W.; Bontempi, P. S.; Boss, Emmanuel S.; Dierssen, Heidi M.; Doney, Scott C.; Eplee, R. E.; Evans, R. H.; Feldman, G. C.; Fields, E.; Franz, B. A.; Kuring, N. A.; Mengelt, C.; Nelson, N. B.; Patt, F. S.; Robinson, W. D.; Sarmiento, Jorge L.; Swan, C. M.; Werdell, P. J.; Westberry, Toby K.; Wilding, J. G.; Yoder, James A. (Elsevier, 2013-04-20)
    Photosynthetic production of organic matter by microscopic oceanic phytoplankton fuels ocean ecosystems and contributes roughly half of the Earth's net primary production. For 13 years, the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view ...
  • Gravity wave characteristics in the mesopause region revealed from OH airglow imager observations over Northern Colorado 

    Tang, Yihuan; Dou, Xiankang; Li, Tao; Nakamura, Takuji; Xue, Xianghui; Huang, Can; Manson, Alan; Meek, Chris; Thorsen, Denise; Avery, Susan K. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-01-31)
    Using 5 years of all-sky OH airglow imager data over Yucca Ridge Field Station, CO (40.7°N, 104.9°W), from September 2003 to September 2008, we extract and deduce quasi-monochromatic gravity wave (GW) characteristics in ...
  • Linking human well-being and jellyfish : ecosystem services, impacts, and societal responses 

    Graham, William M.; Gelcich, Stefan; Robinson, Kelly L.; Duarte, Carlos M.; Brotz, Lucas; Purcell, Jennifer E.; Madin, Laurence P.; Mianzan, Hermes; Sutherland, Kelly R.; Uye, Shin-Ichi; Pitt, Kylie A.; Lucas, Cathy H.; Bogeberg, Molly; Brodeur, Richard D.; Condon, Robert H. (Ecological Society of America, 2014-11)
    Jellyfish are usually perceived as harmful to humans and are seen as “pests”. This negative perception has hindered knowledge regarding their value in terms of ecosystem services. As humans increasingly modify and interact ...
  • Global Ocean Summit : a forum for institutional coordination of global ocean observations 

    Cai, Wenju; Avery, Susan K.; Leinen, Margaret; Lee, Kenneth; Lin, Xiaopei; Visbeck, Martin (2014-11)
