  • Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Colgan, Charles S.; Wellman, Katharine F.; Pelsoci, Thomas; Wieand, Kenneth; Pendleton, Linwood; Kaiser, Mark J.; Pulsipher, Allan G.; Luger, Michael (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-04)
    We develop a methodology to estimate the potential economic benefits from new investments in regional coastal ocean observing systems in US waters, and apply this methodology to generate preliminary estimates of such ...
  • Bauer, Marybeth; Hoagland, Porter; Leschine, Thomas M.; Blount, Benjamin G.; Pomeroy, Caroline M.; Lampl, Linda L.; Scherer, Clifford W.; Ayres, Dan L.; Tester, Patricia A.; Sengco, Mario R.; Sellner, Kevin G.; Schumacker, Joe (Ecological Society of America, 2009-02-10)
    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are natural freshwater and marine hazards that impose substantial adverse impacts on the human use of coastal and marine resources. The socioeconomic and health impacts of HABs can be considerable, ...
  • McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Anderson, Donald M.; Solow, Andrew R.; Townsend, David W. (2005-05-03)
    Six years of oceanographic surveys of Alexandrium fundyense concentrations in the Gulf of Maine are combined with shellfish toxicity records from coastal monitoring stations to assess covariations of these quantities on ...
  • Fuchs, Heidi L.; Solow, Andrew R.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2010-06)
    Marine larval dispersal is affected by hydrodynamic transport and larval behavior, but little is known about how behavior affects large-scale patterns of dispersal and recruitment. Intertidal habitats are characterized by ...
  • Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Fleming, Lora E.; Backer, Lorraine C.; Faustman, Elaine M.; Hoagland, Porter; Tsuchiya, Ami; Younglove, Lisa R.; Wilcox, Bruce A.; Gast, Rebecca J. (BioMed Central, 2008-11-07)
    We review the major linkages between the oceans and public health, focusing on exposures and potential health effects due to anthropogenic and natural factors including: harmful algal blooms, microbes, and chemical pollutants ...
  • Jin, Di; Lin, Jian (2010-11)
    This study attempts to identify the key factors that will make a tsunami warning system most effective, to develop a framework in which results of natural science and engineering research can be effectively integrated into ...
  • Eiswerth, Mark E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-03)
    On August 3 - 4, 1989, the Marine Policy Center of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution hosted the initial meeting of the Marine Biological Diversity Working Group. The formation of this working group was fostered as part ...
  • Hart, Deborah R.; Sissenwine, Michael P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2008-12-22)
    A recent study (White et al. 2008) claimed that fishery profits will often be higher with management that employs no-take marine reserves than conventional fisheries management alone. However, this conclusion was based on ...
  • Huppert, Amit; Solow, Andrew R. (Royal Society, 2004-04-19)
    Fossil beetle remains have been used to reconstruct temperatures. One method by which these reconstructions are made--the Mutual Climatic Range method--is based on the overlap of the observed modern climatic ranges of the ...
  • Peng, Benrong; Lin, Chenchen; Jin, Di; Rao, Huanhuan; Jiang, Yuwu; Liuc, Yan (2013-03)
    This paper presents an analytical framework to estimate the Total Allowable Area for Coastal Reclamation (TAACR) to provide scientific support for the implementation of a coastal reclamation restriction mechanism. The logic ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Beet, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-10-09)
    A common problem in climate science is determining whether the pattern of variability in a particular process or variable has changed over time. When the modern observational record is short, this problem can be addressed ...
  • Cooley, Sarah R.; Lucey, Noelle; Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Doney, Scott C. (2011-05-20)
    Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from human industrial activities are causing a progressive alteration of seawater chemistry, termed ocean acidification, that has decreased seawater pH and carbonate ion ...
  • Davis, Mary E. (2010-11-19)
    This study explored occupational safety practices and regulatory compliance in a representative sample of Maine commercial fishing vessels. Data were collected on demographic characteristics, safety equipment and training, ...
  • Cooley, Sarah R.; Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Doney, Scott C. (Oceanography Society, 2009-12)
    Ocean acidification lowers the oceanic saturation states of carbonate minerals and decreases the calcification rates of some marine organisms that provide a range of ecosystem services such as wild fishery and aquaculture ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Smith, Woollcott K. (Royal Society, 2005-02-04)
    A common approach to estimating the number of species in a taxonomic or other group is to extrapolate the temporal pattern of historical species discoveries or descriptions. A formal statistical approach to this problem ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Huppert, Amit (American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-13)
    Evolutionary spectral analysis has been used to study changes through time in the variability of ENSO-related time series. However, the significance of estimated evolutionary spectra has not been formally assessed. This ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Smith, Woollcott K. (University of Chicago Press, 2010-05-13)
    There is growing interest in predicting the abundance of a species in a region from the occupancy of cells in a uniform grid overlaid on the region. When the number of individuals in each cell follows a negative binomial ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Beet, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-06-03)
    There is some question as to whether the historical record of observed North Atlantic tropical cyclones prior to the advent of satellite coverage is complete. This question is central to understanding the historical trend ...
  • Solow, Andrew R. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-03-01)
    There is considerable interest in detecting a long-term trend in hurricane intensity possibly related to large-scale ocean warming. This effort is complicated by the paucity of wind speed measurements for hurricanes occurring ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Huppert, Amit (American Geophysical Union, 2004-10-08)
    Past sea surface temperatures have been reconstructed using coral measurements of single geochemical proxies. There is some interest in improving reconstruction by combining results from different proxies. The construction ...
