  • Accounting for marine economic activities in large marine ecosystems 

    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 ...
  • Anthropogenic nutrients and harmful algae in coastal waters 

    Davidson, Keith; Gowen, Richard J.; Harrison, Paul J.; Fleming, Lora E.; Hoagland, Porter; Moschonas, Grigorios (Elsevier, 2014-08-28)
    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are thought to be increasing in coastal waters worldwide. Anthropogenic nutrient enrichment has been proposed as a principal causative factor of this increase through elevated inorganic and/or ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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.
  • Determining the structure of the United States marine instrumentation industry and its position in the world industry 

    Broadus, James M.; Hoagland, Porter; Kite-Powell, Hauke L. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-11)
    This report is a general, but comprehensive, description and analysis of industrial organization in the field of marine electronic instrumentation (MEl), a broadly defined "industry," which until now has received little ...
  • Development of an integrated economic and ecological framework for ecosystem-based fisheries management in New England 

    Jin, Di; Hoagland, Porter; Dalton, T. M.; Thunberg, Eric M. (2012-10)
    We present an integrated economic-ecological framework designed to help assess the implementation of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) in New England. We develop the framework by linking a computable general ...
  • Economic impact of the 2005 red tide event on commercial shellfish fisheries in New England 

    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 ...
  • The human health effects of Florida Red Tide (FRT) blooms : an expanded analysis 

    Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di; Beet, Andrew R.; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Reich, Andrew; Ullmann, Steven G.; Fleming, Lora E.; Kirkpatrick, Gary (2014-03)
    Human respiratory and digestive illnesses can be caused by exposures to brevetoxins from blooms of the marine alga Karenia brevis, also known as Florida red tide (FRT). K. brevis requires macro-nutrients to grow; although ...
  • Human responses to Florida red tides : policy awareness and adherence to local fertilizer ordinances 

    Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Kohler, Kate; Byrne, Margaret; Fleming, Lora E.; Scheller, Karen; Reich, Andrew; Hitchcock, Gary; Kirkpatrick, Gary; Ullmann, Steven G.; Hoagland, Porter (2014-06)
    To mitigate the damages of natural hazards, policy responses can be beneficial only if they are effective. Using a self-administered survey approach, this paper focuses on the adherence to local fertilizer ordinances ...
  • The importance of human dimensions research in managing harmful algal blooms 

    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, ...
  • Linking the oceans to public health : current efforts and future directions 

    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 ...
  • Science and economics in the management of an invasive species 

    Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di (American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2006-11)
    Estimates of the economic impacts of nonnative nuisance ("invasive") species must rely on both a sound ecological understanding and the proper application of economic methods. Focusing on the example of the invasive European ...
  • Supply-side approaches to the economic valuation of coastal and marine habitat in the Red Sea 

    Hoagland, Porter; Kite-Powell, Hauke L.; Jin, Di; Solow, Andrew R. (Elsevier, 2013-03-07)
    The degradation of natural fish habitat in the ocean implies lost economic benefits. These value losses often are not measured or anticipated fully, and therefore they are mainly ignored in decisions to develop the coast ...
