      Coral reefs provide a wide array of ecosystem services and harbor some of the highest levels of biodiversity on the planet, but many reefs are in decline worldwide. Tracking changes is necessary for effective resource ...
    • The costs of respiratory illnesses arising from Florida Gulf Coast Karenia brevis blooms 

      Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di; Polansky, Lara Y.; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Fleming, Lora E.; Reich, Andrew; Watkins, Sharon M.; Ullmann, Steven G.; Backer, Lorraine C. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009-05-01)
      Algal blooms of Karenia brevis, a harmful marine algae, occur almost annually off the west coast of Florida. At high concentrations, K. brevis blooms can cause harm through the release of potent toxins, known as brevetoxins, ...
    • Deep-sea mining of seafloor massive sulfides 

      Hoagland, Porter; Beaulieu, Stace E.; Tivey, Maurice A.; Eggert, Roderick G.; German, Christopher R.; Glowka, Lyle; Lin, Jian (2009-10-28)
      The potential emergence of an ocean mining industry to exploit seafloor massive sulfides could present opportunities for oceanographic science to facilitate seafloor mineral development in ways that lessen environmental harms.
    • The depth-distribution of nitrogen fixation by Trichodesmium spp. colonies in the tropical–subtropical North Atlantic 

      Olson, Elise M. B.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Dyhrman, Sonya T.; Waterbury, John B.; Davis, Cabell S.; Solow, Andrew R. (Elsevier, 2015-07-02)
      Nitrogen fixation is an important yet still incompletely constrained component of the marine nitrogen cycle, particularly in the subsurface. A Video Plankton Recorder (VPR) survey in the subtropical North Atlantic found ...
    • Detecting reactivity 

      Neubert, Michael G.; Caswell, Hal; Solow, Andrew R. (Ecological Society of America, 2009-10)
      By definition, ecological systems at a stable equilibrium eventually return to the equilibrium point following a small perturbation. In the short term, however, perturbations can grow. Equilibria that exhibit transient ...
    • The determinants of fishing vessel accident severity 

      Jin, Di (2014-02-05)
      The study examines the determinants of fishing vessel accident severity in the Northeastern United States using vessel accident data from the U.S. Coast Guard for 2001-2008. Vessel damage and crew injury severity equations ...
    • Determinants of injuries in passenger vessel accidents 

      Yip, Tsz Leung; Jin, Di; Talley, Wayne K. (2015-06)
      This paper investigates determinants of crew and passenger injuries in passenger vessel accidents. Crew and passenger injury equations are estimated for ferry, ocean cruise, and river cruise vessel accidents, utilizing ...
    • Determinants of the severity of cruise vessel accidents 

      Talley, Wayne K.; Jin, Di; Kite-Powell, Hauke L. (2007)
      This study investigates determinants of the property damage and injury severities of cruise vessel accidents. Detailed data of individual cruise vessel accidents for the 11-year time period 1991-2001 that were investigated ...
    • Determining the structure of the United States marine instrumentation industry and its position in the world industry 

      Broadus, James M.; Hoagland, Porter; Kite-Powell, Hauke L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-11)
      This report is a general, but comprehensive, description and analysis of industrial organization in the field of marine electronic instrumentation (MEl), a broadly defined "industry," which until now has received little ...
