The value of harmful algal bloom predictions to the nearshore commercial shellfish fishery in the Gulf of Maine
In this study, we develop a framework for measuring the value of harmful algal bloom (HAB) predictions. The framework captures the effects of both private and public responses to HABs. Using data from the New England ...
Mechanisms controlling the SST air-sea heat flux feedback and its dependence on spatial scale
The turbulent air-sea heat flux feedback (α, in W m-2 K-1) is a major contributor to setting the damping timescale of sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies. In this study we compare the spatial distribution and ...
Construction kits or virtual worlds; management applications of E2E models
We review briefly the diversity of modeling activity that comes under the rubric of end-to-end (E2E) models, but the focus of this paper – of joint concern to researchers and to managers - is on applications to management ...
Net atmospheric mercury deposition to Svalbard : estimates from lacustrine sediments
In this study we used lake sediments, which faithfully record Hg inputs, to derive estimates of net atmospheric Hg deposition to Svalbard, Norwegian Arctic. With the exception of one site affected by local pollution, ...
Evaluating triple oxygen isotope estimates of gross primary production at the Hawaii Ocean Time-series and Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study sites
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-08)
The triple oxygen isotopic composition of dissolved oxygen (17Δ) is a promising tracer of gross oxygen productivity (P) in the ocean. Recent studies have inferred a high and variable ratio of P to 14C net primary productivity ...
Linear and nonlinear stratified spindown over sloping topography
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-06)
In a stratified rotating fluid, frictionally driven circulations couple with the buoyancy field over sloping topography. Analytical and numerical methods are used to quantify the impact of this coupling on the vertical ...
Ocean acidification’s potential to alter global marine ecosystem services
(Oceanography Society, 2009-12)
Ocean acidification lowers the oceanic saturation states of carbonate minerals and decreases the calcification rates of some marine organisms that provide a range of ecosystem services such as wild fishery and aquaculture ...
