  • End-to-end foodweb control of fish production on Georges Bank 

    Collie, Jeremy S.; Gifford, Dian J.; Steele, John H. (2009-05-06)
    The ecosystem approach to management requires the productivity of individual fish stocks to be considered in the context of the entire ecosystem. In this paper, we derive an annual end-to-end budget for the Georges Bank ...
  • An ENSO shift revisited 

    Solow, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-11-21)
    An influential 1996 paper presented a statistical analysis showing that the prolonged ENSO warm event of the early 1990's was inconsistent with the historical pattern of ENSO variability and therefore concluded that there ...
  • Environmental health and the coastal zone 

    Stegeman, John J.; Solow, Andrew R. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2002-11)
    Reconciling coastal development and the maintenance of a quality environment represent an enormous management challenge to both public and private interests. Wise management of coastal areas will require an understanding ...

    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 ...
  • The human health effects of Florida Red Tide (FRT) blooms : an expanded analysis 

    Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di; Beet, Andrew R.; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Reich, Andrew; Ullmann, Steven G.; Fleming, Lora E.; Kirkpatrick, Gary (2014-03)
    Human respiratory and digestive illnesses can be caused by exposures to brevetoxins from blooms of the marine alga Karenia brevis, also known as Florida red tide (FRT). K. brevis requires macro-nutrients to grow; although ...
  • Human responses to Florida red tides : policy awareness and adherence to local fertilizer ordinances 

    Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Kohler, Kate; Byrne, Margaret; Fleming, Lora E.; Scheller, Karen; Reich, Andrew; Hitchcock, Gary; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Ullmann, Steven G.; Hoagland, Porter (2014-06)
    To mitigate the damages of natural hazards, policy responses can be beneficial only if they are effective. Using a self-administered survey approach, this paper focuses on the adherence to local fertilizer ordinances ...
  • The importance of human dimensions research in managing harmful algal blooms 

    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, ...
  • Improving the accuracy and utility of harmful algal bloom forecasting systems 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Keafer, Bruce A.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Solow, Andrew R.; Kleindinst, Judith L. (2006-05)
    One of the goals of harmful algal bloom (HAB) research has been to develop predictive capabilities for blooms. Major steps have been made towards this goal, including the development of physical-biological models of HAB ...
  • Interannual variability of Alexandrium fundyense abundance and shellfish toxicity in the Gulf of Maine 

    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 ...
  • Larval responses to turbulence and temperature in a tidal inlet: Habitat selection by dispersing gastropods? 

    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 ...
  • Linking the oceans to public health : current efforts and future directions 

    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 ...
  • Managing tsunamis through early warning systems : a multidisciplinary approach 

    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 ...
