  • 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 ...
  • Davis, Mary E. (2011-03-10)
    The dangers associated with commercial fishing are well documented, and fishermen consistently face one of the highest job-related mortality risks of all US occupations. This study explored fishermen’s perceptions of these ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Huppert, Amit (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-25)
    Isotopic measurements in corals are used to reconstruct past sea surface temperature. These reconstructions are based on calibration regression analyses using paired measurements of modern isotopic composition and sea ...
  • Kurz, Mark D.; Curtice, Joshua; Lott, Dempsey E.; Solow, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-21)
    This paper presents new magmatic helium isotopic compositions in a suite of lavas from phase II of the Hawaiian Scientific Drilling Project (HSDP2) core, which sampled Mauna Kea volcano to a maximum depth of 3098 m below ...
  • Steele, John H.; Gifford, Dian J. (2010-05-06)
    The inherent complexities in the structure and dynamics of marine food webs have led to two major simplifying concepts, a species-centric approach focused on physical processes driving the population dynamics of single ...
  • Kaiser, Michel J.; Edwards-Jones, Gareth (2005-07-05)
    The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) regulate the ecolabeling of products from fisheries with the aim of promoting sustainable fishery practices. To date 11 fisheries have attained full certification and a further 7 are ...
  • DeRuiter, Stacy L.; Solow, Andrew R. (2008-03)
    A common problem in animal behavior is determining whether the rate at which a certain behavioural event occurs is affected by an environmental or other factor. In the example considered later in this paper, the event is ...
  • Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di (American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2006-11)
    Estimates of the economic impacts of nonnative nuisance ("invasive") species must rely on both a sound ecological understanding and the proper application of economic methods. Focusing on the example of the invasive European ...
  • Gaines, Arthur G.; Andrade, Hernan Moreano (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991)
    In 1986 the Government of Ecuador established the Galápagos Marine Resources Reserve encompassing the entire Galápagos Archipelago, an area embracing 70,00 square kilometers of the Pacific Ocean and its underlying seabed. ...
  • Axelsen, Jacob Bock; Roll, Uri; Stone, Lewi; Solow, Andrew R. (Ecological Society of America, 2013-03)
    The species–area relationship summarizes the relationship between the average number of species in a region and its area. This relationship provides a basis for predicting the loss of species associated with loss ...
  • Managi, Shunsuke; Opaluch, James J.; Jin, Di; Grigalunas, Thomas A. (2005-11)
    We examine the impact of technological change on oil and gas exploration, development and production in the Gulf of Mexico over the past five decades. We analyze the effect of technological change on the production ...
  • Hoagland, Porter; Schumacher, Mary E.; Gaines, Arthur G. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1995-07)
    This study was undertaken to advance the basis for discussions among Contracting Parties to the Cartagena Convention concerning a protocol on land-based marine pollution (LBMP) in the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR). The ...
  • Gyory, Joanna; Pineda, Jesus; Solow, Andrew R. (2012-11-12)
    Gravid adults of the common intertidal barnacle Semibalanus balanoides (L.) brood fully developed larvae until individuals perceive some cue from the environment that triggers synchronous larval release. The prevailing ...
  • Heath, Michael R.; Speirs, Douglas C.; Steele, John H. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-12-16)
    Climate fluctuations and human exploitation are causing global changes in nutrient enrichment of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and declining abundances of apex predators. The resulting trophic cascades have had profound ...
