  • Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di (2007-09)
    We develop an index that is a measure of the intensity of marine activities in large marine ecosystems (LMEs). We compare this marine activity index with an index of socioeconomic development across ocean regions. This ...
  • Ruzicka, James J.; Steele, John H.; Gaichas, Sarah K.; Ballerini, Tosca; Gifford, Dian J.; Brodeur, Richard D.; Hofmann, Eileen E. (The Oceanography Society, 2013-12)
    End-to-end models were constructed to examine and compare the trophic structure and energy flow in coastal shelf ecosystems of four US Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics (GLOBEC) study regions: the Northern California Current, ...
  • Jin, Di; Thunberg, Eric M. (2005-02-17)
    Commercial fishing is one of the least safe occupations. Fishing vessel accident probability and vessel trip probability for fishing areas off the northeastern United States were modeled using logit regression and daily ...
  • Jin, Di (2012-08-02)
    This study presents a framework for analyzing the interactions between aquaculture and capture fisheries in the context of ecosystem-based management. We extend a model of the economic and ecological systems in coastal ...
  • Kaiser, Michel J. (National Research Council Canada, 2005-05-31)
    Chronic failures in marine fisheries management have led some to suggest that marine protected areas (MPAs) are the solution to achieve sustainable fisheries. While such systems work for certain habitat-specific and nonmobile ...
  • Steele, John H. (2005-11-03)
    Ecosystem based management of marine resources is a worthy ideal. At present, however, the science is unable to measure and relate the fundamental concepts of diversity, productivity and resilience required for management ...
  • van der Hoop, Julie M.; Moore, Michael J.; Barco, Susan G.; Cole, Timothy V. N.; Daoust, Pierre-Yves; Henry, Allison G.; McAlpine, Donald F.; McLellan, William A.; Wimmer, Tonya; Solow, Andrew R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2012-10-01)
    United States and Canadian governments have responded to legal requirements to reduce human-induced whale mortality via vessel strikes and entanglement in fishing gear by implementing a suite of regulatory actions. We ...
  • Steele, John H.; Collie, Jeremy S.; Bisagni, James J.; Gifford, Dian J.; Fogarty, Michael J.; Link, Jason S.; Sullivan, B. K.; Sieracki, Michael E.; Beet, Andrew R.; Mountain, David G.; Durbin, Edward G.; Palka, D.; Stockhausen, W. T. (2007-05-09)
    Oceanographic regimes on the continental shelf display a great range in the time scales of physical exchange, biochemical processes and trophic transfers. The close surface-to-seabed physical coupling at intermediate scales ...
  • Stone, Daithi; Auffhammer, Maximilian; Carey, Mark; Hansen, Gerrit; Huggel, Christian; Cramer, Wolfgang; Lobell, David; Molau, Ulf; Solow, Andrew R.; Tibig, Lourdes; Yohe, Gary (Springer, 2013-08-30)
    Anthropogenic climate change has triggered impacts on natural and human systems world-wide, yet the formal scientific method of detection and attribution has been only insufficiently described. Detection and attribution ...
  • Nierenberg, Kate; Kirner, Karen; Hoagland, Porter; Ullmann, Steven G.; LeBlanc, William G.; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Fleming, Lora E.; Kirkpatrick, Barbara (2010-06-15)
    The marine dinoflagellate, Karenia brevis, is responsible for Florida red tides. Brevetoxins, the neurotoxins produced by K. brevis blooms, can cause fish kills, contaminate shellfish, and lead to respiratory illness in ...
  • Solow, Andrew R. (Dept. of Geosciences, University of Arizona, 2003)
    It is common practice to estimate the age of undated material extracted from a sediment core from radiocarbon or other radiometric dates of samples taken above and below the extracted material. This paper presents a simple ...
  • Gonneea, Meagan E.; Mulligan, Ann E.; Charette, Matthew A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-06-03)
    To better understand the physical drivers of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) in the coastal ocean, we conducted a detailed field and modeling study within an unconfined coastal aquifer system. We monitored the hydraulic ...
  • Farrow, Scott; Scott, Michael (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-05-28)
    Floods are risky events ranging from small to catastrophic. Although expected flood damages are frequently used for economic policy analysis, alternative measures such as option price (OP) and cumulative prospect value ...
  • Steele, John H.; Gifford, Dian J.; Collie, Jeremy S. (2011-06)
    Three methods are described to estimate potential yields of commercial fish species: (i) single-species calculation of maximum sustainable yields, and two ecosystem-based methods derived from published results for (ii) ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
