Estimating the economic benefits of regional ocean observing systems
(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 ...
Why compare marine ecosystems?
(Oxford University Press, 2009-08-30)
Effective marine ecosystem-based management (EBM) requires understanding the key processes and relationships controlling the aspects of biodiversity, productivity, and resilience to perturbations. Unfortunately, the scales, ...
Economic considerations in the design of ocean observing systems
(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 ...
Reconciling end-to-end and population concepts for marine ecosystems
The inherent complexities in the structure and dynamics of marine food webs have led to two major simplifying concepts, a species-centric approach focused on physical processes driving the population dynamics of single ...
End-to-end foodweb control of fish production on Georges Bank
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 ...
Interannual variability of Alexandrium fundyense abundance and shellfish toxicity in the Gulf of Maine
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 ...
Deep-sea mining of seafloor massive sulfides
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.
Optimal multiproxy reconstruction of sea surface temperature from corals
(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 ...
On the attribution of a single event to climate change
(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 ...
Environmental health and the coastal zone
(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 ...
