Estimation of biological parameters of marine organisms using linear and nonlinear acoustic scattering model-based inversion methods
(Acoustical Society of America, 2016-05-19)
The linear inversion commonly used in fisheries and zooplankton acoustics assumes a constant inversion kernel and ignores the uncertainties associated with the shape and behavior of the scattering targets, as well as other ...
Projected pH reductions by 2100 might put deep North Atlantic biodiversity at risk
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-12-11)
This study aims to evaluate the potential for impacts of ocean acidification on North Atlantic deep-sea ecosystems in response to IPCC AR5 Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs). Deep-sea biota is likely highly ...
Influence of environmental variables on Gambierdiscus spp. (Dinophyceae) growth and distribution
(Public Library of Science, 2016-04-13)
Benthic dinoflagellates in the genus Gambierdiscus produce the ciguatoxin precursors responsible for the occurrence of ciguatera toxicity. The prevalence of ciguatera toxins in fish has been linked to the presence and ...
On the incompleteness of the historical record of North Atlantic tropical cyclones
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-06-03)
There is some question as to whether the historical record of observed North Atlantic tropical cyclones prior to the advent of satellite coverage is complete. This question is central to understanding the historical trend ...
Stochastic Dominance Test (MATLAB and R Code)
This is a MATLAB function which can be run as a .m file. It takes locational data (x), with associated abundances (ax) at those locations from one time period and locational data (y), with associated abundance (ay) at those ...
Ocean Bottom Seismometer Augmentation in the North Pacific (OBSANP) - cruise report
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2014-12)
The Ocean Bottom Seismometer Augmentation in the North Pacific Experiment (OBSANP, June-July, 2013, R/V Melville) addresses the coherence and depth dependence of deep-water ambient noise and signals. During the 2004 NPAL ...

Regime-dependent nonstationary relationship between the East Asian winter monsoon and North Pacific Oscillation
(American Meteorological Society, 2014-11-01)
The East Asian winter monsoon (EAWM) and the North Pacific Oscillation (NPO) constitute two outstanding surface atmospheric circulation patterns affecting the winter sea surface temperature (SST) variability in the western ...
Improving the time resolution of surfzone bathymetry using in situ altimeters
Surfzone bathymetry often is resolved poorly in time because watercraft surveys cannot be performed when waves are large, and remote sensing techniques have limited vertical accuracy. However, accurate high-frequency ...
