  • Constructing end-to-end models using ECOPATH data 

    Steele, John H.; Ruzicka, James J. (2011-03)
    The wide availability of ECOPATH data sets provides a valuable resource for the comparative analysis of marine ecosystems. We show how to derive a bottom-up transform from the top-down ECOPATH; couple this to a simple NPZD ...
  • Construction kits or virtual worlds; management applications of E2E models 

    Steele, John H.; Aydin, Kerim; Gifford, Dian J.; Hofmann, Eileen E. (2011-10)
    We review briefly the diversity of modeling activity that comes under the rubric of end-to-end (E2E) models, but the focus of this paper – of joint concern to researchers and to managers - is on applications to management ...

    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.
  • 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 ...
  • Developing a national marine electronics agenda : proceedings of the Marine Instrumentation Panel meeting, September 12-14, 1989 

    Gaines, Arthur G.; Lindborg, Kristina L. C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-12)
    Thirteen short papers address aspects of competitiveness in the marine electronics instrumentation industry. Topics include activity and status of government initiatives in Japan and Europe to promote this industry; and ...
  • Development of an integrated economic and ecological framework for ecosystem-based fisheries management in New England 

    Jin, Di; Hoagland, Porter; Dalton, T. M.; Thunberg, Eric M. (2012-10)
    We present an integrated economic-ecological framework designed to help assess the implementation of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) in New England. We develop the framework by linking a computable general ...
  • A differential pressure instrument with wireless telemetry for in-situ measurement of fluid flow across sediment-water boundaries 

    Gardner, Alan T.; Karam, Hanan N.; Mulligan, Ann E.; Harvey, Charles F.; Hammar, Terence R.; Hemond, Harold F. (Molecular Diversity Preservation International, 2009-01-09)
    An instrument has been built to carry out continuous in-situ measurement of small differences in water pressure, conductivity and temperature, in natural surface water and groundwater systems. A low-cost data telemetry ...
  • Dividing up the pie : whales, fish, and humans as competitors 

    Ruzicka, James J.; Steele, John H.; Ballerini, Tosca; Gaichas, Sarah K.; Ainley, David G. (2013-04-29)
    Similarly structured food web models of four coastal ecosystems (Northern California Current, Central Gulf of Alaska, Georges Bank, southwestern Antarctic Peninsula) were used to investigate competition among whales, ...
  • Ecological damage compensation for coastal sea area uses 

    Rao, Huanhuan; Lin, Chenchen; Kong, Hao; Jin, Di; Peng, Benrong (2013-11)
    Rapid economic growth has resulted in significant ecological degradation in many coastal areas in China. Control measures involving Marine Ecological Damage Compensation (MEDC) have been introduced to curb unsustainable ...
  • Economic considerations in the design of ocean observing systems 

    Kite-Powell, Hauke L. (Oceanography Society, 2009-06)
    Recent work on the potential economic value of improved coastal ocean observing capabilities suggests that aggregate values of better ocean observing system information for all US waters could be in the hundreds of ...
  • Economic impact of the 2005 red tide event on commercial shellfish fisheries in New England 

    Jin, Di; Thunberg, Eric M.; Hoagland, Porter (2007-10-04)
    Over the last several decades, harmful algal bloom (HAB) events have been observed in more locations than ever before throughout the United States. The 2005 bloom of Alexandrium fundyense was the most widespread and intense ...
  • End-to-end foodweb control of fish production on Georges Bank 

    Collie, Jeremy S.; Gifford, Dian J.; Steele, John H. (2009-05-06)
