Construction kits or virtual worlds; management applications of E2E models
We review briefly the diversity of modeling activity that comes under the rubric of end-to-end (E2E) models, but the focus of this paper – of joint concern to researchers and to managers - is on applications to management ...
Scientific research and the Galapagos marine resources reserve : synopsis of a workshop April 20-24, 1987 Guayaquil, Ecuador
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991)
In 1986 the Government of Ecuador established the Galápagos Marine Resources Reserve encompassing the entire Galápagos Archipelago, an area embracing 70,00 square kilometers of the Pacific Ocean and its underlying seabed. ...
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.
The value of harmful algal bloom predictions to the nearshore commercial shellfish fishery in the Gulf of Maine
In this study, we develop a framework for measuring the value of harmful algal bloom (HAB) predictions. The framework captures the effects of both private and public responses to HABs. Using data from the New England ...
The costs of respiratory illnesses arising from Florida Gulf Coast Karenia brevis blooms
(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, ...
United States electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) test-bed project : system requirements specification
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1991-08)
In 1989 the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a provisional performance Standard for ECDIS (MSC/Circ. 515). This standard defines an electronic chart display and ...
Ocean acidification’s potential to alter global marine ecosystem services
(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 ...
Characterizing the error in the estimated age-depth relationship
(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 ...
Coupled nature-human (CNH) systems : generic aspects of human interactions with blooms of Florida Red Tide (Karenia brevis) and implications for policy responses
Coupled nature-human (CNH) systems are now the focus of a growing number of interdisciplinary re-search programs worldwide (Liu et al. 2007a). As implied by the term “coupled,” these systems involve interactions between ...
CHANS : the characteristics of cost-effective policy responses for harmful algal blooms [poster]
A growing concern for coastal management is the choice of appropriate public or private responses to HABs as a natural hazard. Considerable efforts have been devoted to understanding the scientific aspects of HABs, ...
