Continuous monitoring of near-bottom mesoplankton communities in the East China Sea during a series of typhoons
Typhoons are a common feature of summer and autumn months in the East China Sea. These events often promote phytoplankton growth in surface waters as a result of upwelling and transport of nutrients, but their effects on ...
Observations and numerical simulations of large-eddy circulation in the ocean surface mixed layer
(John Wiley & Sons, 2014-11-06)
Two near-surface dye releases were mapped on scales of minutes to hours temporally, meters to order 1 km horizontally, and 1–20 m vertically using a scanning, depth-resolving airborne lidar. In both cases, dye evolved into ...
Increase in mercury in Pacific yellowfin tuna
Mercury is a toxic trace metal that can accumulate to levels that threaten human and environmental health. Models and empirical data suggest that humans are responsible for a great deal of the mercury actively cycling ...
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 ...

Phytoplankton phenology indices in coral reef ecosystems : application to ocean-color observations in the Red Sea
Phytoplankton, at the base of the marine food web, represent a fundamental food source in coral reef ecosystems. The timing (phenology) and magnitude of the phytoplankton biomass are major determinants of trophic interactions. ...
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 ...
Supply-side approaches to the economic valuation of coastal and marine habitat in the Red Sea
The degradation of natural fish habitat in the ocean implies lost economic benefits. These value losses often are not measured or anticipated fully, and therefore they are mainly ignored in decisions to develop the coast ...
