  • Rao, Huanhuan; Lin, Chenchen; Kong, Hao; Jin, Di; Peng, Benrong (2013-11)
    Rapid economic growth has resulted in significant ecological degradation in many coastal areas in China. Control measures involving Marine Ecological Damage Compensation (MEDC) have been introduced to curb unsustainable ...
  • Kite-Powell, Hauke L. (Oceanography Society, 2009-06)
    Recent work on the potential economic value of improved coastal ocean observing capabilities suggests that aggregate values of better ocean observing system information for all US waters could be in the hundreds of ...
  • Jin, Di; Thunberg, Eric M.; Hoagland, Porter (2007-10-04)
    Over the last several decades, harmful algal bloom (HAB) events have been observed in more locations than ever before throughout the United States. The 2005 bloom of Alexandrium fundyense was the most widespread and intense ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Colgan, Charles S.; Wellman, Katharine F.; Pelsoci, Thomas; Wieand, Kenneth; Pendleton, Linwood; Kaiser, Mark J.; Pulsipher, Allan G.; Luger, Michael (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-04)
    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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Eiswerth, Mark E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-03)
    On August 3 - 4, 1989, the Marine Policy Center of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution hosted the initial meeting of the Marine Biological Diversity Working Group. The formation of this working group was fostered as part ...
  • Hart, Deborah R.; Sissenwine, Michael P. (John Wiley & Sons, 2008-12-22)
    A recent study (White et al. 2008) claimed that fishery profits will often be higher with management that employs no-take marine reserves than conventional fisheries management alone. However, this conclusion was based on ...
  • Huppert, Amit; Solow, Andrew R. (Royal Society, 2004-04-19)
    Fossil beetle remains have been used to reconstruct temperatures. One method by which these reconstructions are made--the Mutual Climatic Range method--is based on the overlap of the observed modern climatic ranges of the ...
  • Peng, Benrong; Lin, Chenchen; Jin, Di; Rao, Huanhuan; Jiang, Yuwu; Liuc, Yan (2013-03)
    This paper presents an analytical framework to estimate the Total Allowable Area for Coastal Reclamation (TAACR) to provide scientific support for the implementation of a coastal reclamation restriction mechanism. The logic ...
  • Solow, Andrew R.; Beet, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-10-09)
    A common problem in climate science is determining whether the pattern of variability in a particular process or variable has changed over time. When the modern observational record is short, this problem can be addressed ...
  • Cooley, Sarah R.; Lucey, Noelle; Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Doney, Scott C. (2011-05-20)
    Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from human industrial activities are causing a progressive alteration of seawater chemistry, termed ocean acidification, that has decreased seawater pH and carbonate ion ...
  • Davis, Mary E. (2010-11-19)
    This study explored occupational safety practices and regulatory compliance in a representative sample of Maine commercial fishing vessels. Data were collected on demographic characteristics, safety equipment and training, ...
  • 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 ...
