Ecology of chemical defenses of algae against the herbivorous snail, Littorina littorea, in the New England rocky intertidal community
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-02)
In the New England rocky intertidal community, space is dominated by two perennial plant types, brown fucoid algae (Ascophyllum nodosum and several species of Fucus) in the mid zones and the red alga Chondrus crispus ...
Role of carbon cycle observations and knowledge in carbon management
(Annual Reviews, 2003-08-14)
Agriculture and industrial development have led to inadvertent changes in the natural carbon cycle. As a consequence, concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases have increased in the atmosphere and may ...
Constraints on the vital effect in coccolithophore and dinoflagellate calcite by oxygen isotopic modification of seawater
In this study, we show that there are independent controls of 18O/16O and 13C/12C fractionation in coccolithophore and dinoflagellate calcite due to the contrasting kinetics of each isotope system. We demonstrate that ...
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 ...
Envisioning a marine biodiversity observation network
(University of California Press, 2013-05)
Humans depend on diverse ocean ecosystems for food, jobs, and sustained well-being, yet many stressors threaten marine life. Extensive research has demonstrated that maintaining biodiversity promotes ocean health and service ...
Atmospheric carbon dioxide variability in the Community Earth System Model : evaluation and transient dynamics during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
(American Meteorological Society, 2013-07-01)
Changes in atmospheric CO2 variability during the twenty-first century may provide insight about ecosystem responses to climate change and have implications for the design of carbon monitoring programs. This paper describes ...
Dissolved strontium in the subterranean estuary- implications for the marine strontium isotope budget
Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the ocean supplies Sr with less radiogenic 87Sr/86Sr than seawater, and thus constitutes an important term in the Sr isotope budget in the modern ocean. However, few data exist for ...
Meridional overturning circulation in the South Atlantic at the last glacial maximum
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-10-03)
The geostrophic shear associated with the meridional overturning circulation is reflected in the difference in density between the eastern and western margins of the ocean basin. Here we examine how the density difference ...
Common humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) sound types for passive acoustic monitoring
(Acoustical Society of America, 2011-01)
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are one of several baleen whale species in the Northwest Atlantic that coexist with vessel traffic and anthropogenic noise. Passive acoustic monitoring strategies can be used in ...
