  • Climate variability, oceanography, bowhead whale distribution, and Iñupiat subsistence whaling near Barrow, Alaska 

    Ashjian, Carin J.; Braund, Stephen R.; Campbell, Robert G.; George, J. C.; Kruse, Jack; Maslowski, Wieslaw; Moore, Sue E.; Nicolson, Craig R.; Okkonen, Stephen R.; Sherr, Barry F.; Sherr, Evelyn B.; Spitz, Yvette H. (Arctic Institute of North America, 2010-06)
    The annual migration of bowhead whales (Balaena mysticetus) past Barrow, Alaska, has provided subsistence hunting to Iñupiat for centuries. Bowheads recurrently feed on aggregations of zooplankton prey near Barrow in autumn. ...
  • Environmental correlates of blue and fin whale call detections in the North Pacific Ocean from 1997 to 2002 

    Stafford, Kathleen M.; Citta, John J.; Moore, Sue E.; Daher, Mary Ann; George, Joseph E. (Inter-Research, 2009-12-03)
    A 6 yr time series of blue whale Balaenoptera musculus and fin whale B. physalus call detections in the North Pacific Ocean was correlated with 3 oceanographic variables (sea-surface temperature, chlorophyll a concentration, ...
  • Long distance passive localization of vocalizing sei whales using an acoustic normal mode approach 

    Newhall, Arthur E.; Lin, Ying-Tsong; Lynch, James F.; Baumgartner, Mark F.; Gawarkiewicz, Glen G. (Acoustical Society of America, 2012-02)
    During a 2 day period in mid-September 2006, more than 200, unconfirmed but identifiable, sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) calls were collected as incidental data during a multidisciplinary oceanography and acoustics ...
  • A simplified age-stage model for copepod population dynamics 

    Hu, Qiao; Davis, Cabell S.; Petrik, Colleen M. (Inter-Research, 2008-05-22)
    Complex 3D biological-physical models are becoming widely used in marine and freshwater ecology. These models are highly valued synthesizing tools because they provide insights into complex dynamics that are difficult to ...
