Supply-side approaches to the economic valuation of coastal and marine habitat in the Red Sea
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 ...
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 ...
A differential pressure instrument with wireless telemetry for in-situ measurement of fluid flow across sediment-water boundaries
(Molecular Diversity Preservation International, 2009-01-09)
An instrument has been built to carry out continuous in-situ measurement of small differences in water pressure, conductivity and temperature, in natural surface water and groundwater systems. A low-cost data telemetry ...
Marine reserve effects on fishery profits : a comment on White et al. (2008)
(John Wiley & Sons, 2008-12-22)
A recent study (White et al. 2008) claimed that fishery profits will often be higher with management that employs no-take marine reserves than conventional fisheries management alone. However, this conclusion was based on ...
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 ...
Determining the structure of the United States marine instrumentation industry and its position in the world industry
(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 ...
Modeling the Total Allowable Area for Coastal Reclamation : a case study of Xiamen, China
This paper presents an analytical framework to estimate the Total Allowable Area for Coastal Reclamation (TAACR) to provide scientific support for the implementation of a coastal reclamation restriction mechanism. The logic ...
Determinants of injuries in passenger vessel accidents
This paper investigates determinants of crew and passenger injuries in passenger vessel accidents. Crew and passenger injury equations are estimated for ferry, ocean cruise, and river cruise vessel accidents, utilizing ...
River dolphins can act as population trend indicators in degraded freshwater systems : comment
(Ecological Society of America, 2015-07)
Coral reef species assemblages are associated with ambient soundscapes
Coral reefs provide a wide array of ecosystem services and harbor some of the highest levels of biodiversity on the planet, but many reefs are in decline worldwide. Tracking changes is necessary for effective resource ...
