    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 ...
  • A broad-scale profile of the marine advanced technology industry 

    Kite-Powell, Hauke L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-03)
    Within the maritime sector of the United States economy, in which many industries are largely moribund (shipbuilding), flagging (international shipping), or often in disarray (fisheries), electronic marine instrumentation ...
  • The challenge to detect and attribute effects of climate change on human and natural systems 

    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 ...
  • Changes in work habits of lifeguards in relation to Florida red tide 

    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 ...
  • Characterizing the error in the estimated age-depth relationship 

    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 ...
  • Climate-driven sea level anomalies modulate coastal groundwater dynamics and discharge 

    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 ...
  • Comparing multistate expected damages, option price and cumulative prospect measures for valuing flood protection 

    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 ...
  • Comparing species and ecosystem-based estimates of fisheries yields 

    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) ...
  • Constructing end-to-end models using ECOPATH data 

    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 ...
  • Construction kits or virtual worlds; management applications of E2E models 

    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 ...
  • The costs of respiratory illnesses arising from Florida Gulf Coast Karenia brevis blooms 

    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, ...
  • Deep-sea mining of seafloor massive sulfides 

    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.
  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • Determinants of injuries in passenger vessel accidents 

    Yip, Tsz Leung; Jin, Di; Talley, Wayne K. (2015-06)
