On the incompleteness of the historical record of North Atlantic tropical cyclones
(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 ...
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 ...
Development of an integrated economic and ecological framework for ecosystem-based fisheries management in New England
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 ...
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)
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 ...
Aquaculture and capture fisheries : a conceptual approach toward an integrated economic-ecological analysis
This study presents a framework for analyzing the interactions between aquaculture and capture fisheries in the context of ecosystem-based management. We extend a model of the economic and ecological systems in coastal ...
Occupational safety and regulatory compliance in US commercial fishing
This study explored occupational safety practices and regulatory compliance in a representative sample of Maine commercial fishing vessels. Data were collected on demographic characteristics, safety equipment and training, ...
Constructing end-to-end models using ECOPATH data
The wide availability of ECOPATH data sets provides a valuable resource for the comparative analysis of marine ecosystems. We show how to derive a bottom-up transform from the top-down ECOPATH; couple this to a simple NPZD ...
Comparing species and ecosystem-based estimates of fisheries yields
Three methods are described to estimate potential yields of commercial fish species: (i) single-species calculation of maximum sustainable yields, and two ecosystem-based methods derived from published results for (ii) ...
