      A growing concern for coastal management is the choice of appropriate public or private responses to HABs as a natural hazard. Considerable efforts have been devoted to understanding the scientific aspects of HABs, ...
    • 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 ...

      The report briefly describes coastal and marine resource uses and problems in Ecuador's Galapagos Islands, discusses general principles of coastal zone management (CZM) and marine resources management (MRM), examines the ...
    • 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 ...
    • Coral reef species assemblages are associated with ambient soundscapes 

      Kaplan, Maxwell B.; Mooney, T. Aran; Partan, James W.; Solow, Andrew R. (2015-06)
      Coral reefs provide a wide array of ecosystem services and harbor some of the highest levels of biodiversity on the planet, but many reefs are in decline worldwide. Tracking changes is necessary for effective resource ...
