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 ...
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 ...

(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 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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
Science and economics in the management of an invasive species
(American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2006-11)
Estimates of the economic impacts of nonnative nuisance ("invasive") species must rely on both a sound ecological understanding and the proper application of economic methods. Focusing on the example of the invasive European ...
Stochastic frontier analysis of total factor productivity in the offshore oil and gas industry
We examine the impact of technological change on oil and gas exploration, development and production in the Gulf of Mexico over the past five decades. We analyze the effect of technological change on the production ...
An analysis of fishing vessel accidents in fishing areas off the northeastern United States
Commercial fishing is one of the least safe occupations. Fishing vessel accident probability and vessel trip probability for fishing areas off the northeastern United States were modeled using logit regression and daily ...
