    • 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)

      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 ...
    • 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

      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 ...
