    United States and Canadian governments have responded to legal requirements to reduce human-induced whale mortality via vessel strikes and entanglement in fishing gear by implementing a suite of regulatory actions. We ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 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 ...
  • Improving the accuracy and utility of harmful algal bloom forecasting systems 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Keafer, Bruce A.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Solow, Andrew R.; Kleindinst, Judith L. (2006-05)
    One of the goals of harmful algal bloom (HAB) research has been to develop predictive capabilities for blooms. Major steps have been made towards this goal, including the development of physical-biological models of HAB ...
  • Interannual variability of Alexandrium fundyense abundance and shellfish toxicity in the Gulf of Maine 

    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 ...
  • Larval responses to turbulence and temperature in a tidal inlet: Habitat selection by dispersing gastropods? 

    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 ...
  • Method for reconstructing climate from fossil beetle assemblages 

    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 ...
  • A nonparametric test for change in variability using a proxy record with an application to ENSO 

    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 ...
  • On estimating the number of species from the discovery record 

    Solow, Andrew R.; Smith, Woollcott K. (Royal Society, 2005-02-04)
    A common approach to estimating the number of species in a taxonomic or other group is to extrapolate the temporal pattern of historical species discoveries or descriptions. A formal statistical approach to this problem ...
  • On non-stationarity of ENSO 

    Solow, Andrew R.; Huppert, Amit (American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-13)
    Evolutionary spectral analysis has been used to study changes through time in the variability of ENSO-related time series. However, the significance of estimated evolutionary spectra has not been formally assessed. This ...
  • On predicting abundance from occupancy 

    Solow, Andrew R.; Smith, Woollcott K. (University of Chicago Press, 2010-05-13)
    There is growing interest in predicting the abundance of a species in a region from the occupancy of cells in a uniform grid overlaid on the region. When the number of individuals in each cell follows a negative binomial ...
  • On the attribution of a single event to climate change 

    Hansen, Gerrit; Auffhammer, Maximilian; Solow, Andrew R. (American Meteorological Society, 2014-11-15)
    There is growing interest in assessing the role of climate change in observed extreme weather events. Recent work in this area has focused on estimating a measure called attributable risk. A statistical formulation of this ...
  • On the incompleteness of the historical record of North Atlantic tropical cyclones 

    Solow, Andrew R.; Beet, Andrew R. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-06-03)
    There is some question as to whether the historical record of observed North Atlantic tropical cyclones prior to the advent of satellite coverage is complete. This question is central to understanding the historical trend ...
  • On the maximum observed wind speed in a randomly sampled hurricane 

    Solow, Andrew R. (American Meteorological Society, 2010-03-01)
    There is considerable interest in detecting a long-term trend in hurricane intensity possibly related to large-scale ocean warming. This effort is complicated by the paucity of wind speed measurements for hurricanes occurring ...
  • Optimal multiproxy reconstruction of sea surface temperature from corals 

    Solow, Andrew R.; Huppert, Amit (American Geophysical Union, 2004-10-08)
    Past sea surface temperatures have been reconstructed using coral measurements of single geochemical proxies. There is some interest in improving reconstruction by combining results from different proxies. The construction ...

    Solow, Andrew R.; Huppert, Amit (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-25)
    Isotopic measurements in corals are used to reconstruct past sea surface temperature. These reconstructions are based on calibration regression analyses using paired measurements of modern isotopic composition and sea ...
