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 ...
Analysis of seafloor seismograms of the 2003 Tokachi-Oki earthquake sequence for earthquake early warning
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-07-31)
Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) algorithms estimate the magnitude of an underway rupture from the first few seconds of the P-wave to allow hazard assessment and mitigation before the S-wave arrival. Many large subduction-zone ...
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 ...
Biochemical warfare on the reef : the role of glutathione transferases in consumer tolerance of dietary prostaglandins
(Public Library of Science, 2010-01-06)
Despite the profound variation among marine consumers in tolerance for allelochemically-rich foods, few studies have examined the biochemical adaptations underlying diet choice. Here we examine the role of glutathione ...

Tropical sea surface temperatures for the past four centuries reconstructed from coral archives
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015-03-18)
Most annually resolved climate reconstructions of the Common Era are based on terrestrial data, making it a challenge to independently assess how recent climate changes have affected the oceans. Here as part of the Past ...
Distribution and diel vertical movements of mesopelagic scattering layers in the Red Sea
The mesopelagic zone of the Red Sea represents an extreme environment due to low food concentrations, high temperatures and low oxygen waters. Nevertheless, a 38 kHz echosounder identified at least four distinct ...
Spatio-temporal patterns in acoustic presence and distribution of Antarctic blue whales Balaenoptera musculus intermedia in the Weddell Sea
Distribution and movement patterns of Antarctic blue whales Balaenoptera musculus intermedia at large temporal and spatial scales are still poorly understood. The objective of this study was to explore spatio-temporal ...
On a neck, on a spit : controls on the shape of free spits
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016-02-03)
We investigate the controls upon the shape of freely extending spits using a one-contour-line model of shoreline evolution. In contrast to existing frameworks that suggest that spits are oriented in the direction of ...
A modified atmospheric non-hydrostatic model on low aspect ratio grids : part II
(International Meteorological Institute, 2013-06-28)
Sun et al. (2012) proposed a modified non-hydrostatic model (MNH), in which the left-hand side of the continuity equation is multiplied by a parameter δ(4 ≤ δ≤16 in the article) to suppress high-frequency acoustic waves. ...
