      Edwards, Steven F. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-01)
      While the economic impacts of resource use pervade discussions of coastal zone management, most discourses tend to be ill-defined and incomplete, and to lack a solid basis in economic theory. This primer was written to ...
    • Ecosystem services and community based coral reef management institutions in post blast-fishing Indonesia 

      Heber Dunning, Kelly A. (2014-11)
      Depending upon the institutional framework, coral reef ecosystems and local economic development can be synergistic. When managed properly through local institutions, coral reef systems can deliver ecosystem services that ...
    • End-to-end foodweb control of fish production on Georges Bank 

      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 ...
    • An ENSO shift revisited 

      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 ...
    • Environmental drivers of salp Thalia democratica population dynamics from in situ observations 

      Pascual, Maria; Neubert, Michael G.; Acuña, José Luis; Solow, Andrew R.; Dominguez-Carrió, Carlos; Salvador, Joaquín; Olariaga, Alejandro; Fuentes, Veronica (2016-12)
      Thalia democratica blooms are a recurrent phenomenon in many coastal areas of the Mediterranean Sea and have significant ecological effects. To better understand the environmental drivers of salp blooms, we conducted 8 ...
    • Environmental health and the coastal zone 

      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 ...
    • Estimating the economic benefits of regional ocean observing systems 

      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 ...
    • Final report : Market-based incentives to reduce fisheries bycatch 

      Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di; Lee, Patricia; Croft, Christopher; Davidson, Lynn; Wallis, Sarah (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-02-29)
      This report represents a first step at considering the potential for the use of market-based incentives to aid in the resolution of fishery bycatch problems. Market-based incentives have several advantages over more ...
