Carbon cycling in the Arctic Archipelago: the export of Pacific carbon to the North Atlantic
(European Geosciences Union, 2009-01)
The Arctic Ocean is expected to be disproportionately sensitive to climatic changes, and is thought to be an area where such changes might be detected. The Arctic hydrological cycle is influenced by: runoff and precipitation, ...
Pacific Salmon in Hot Water: Applying Aerobic Scope Models and Biotelemetry to Predict the Success of Spawning Migrations
(University of Chicago Press, P.O. Box 37005 Chicago IL 60637 USA, [mailto:email@example.com], [URL:http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/], 2008-12)
Concern over global climate change is widespread, but quantifying relationships between temperature change and animal fitness has been a challenge for scientists. Our approach to this challenge was to study migratory ...
Symmetry, change, perturbation, and observing mode in natural communities
Like a kaleidoscope, nature presents continuously fleeting images of natural communities. It has been difficult to discern patterns of community structure in these elusive images. For both theoretical and applied considerations, ...
Mechanisms Influencing the Timing and Success of Reproductive Migration in a Capital Breeding Semelparous Fish Species, the Sockeye Salmon
(University of Chicago Press, P.O. Box 37005 Chicago IL 60637 USA, [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org], [URL:http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/], 2009)
Two populations of homing sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka; Adams and Chilko) were intercepted in the marine approaches around the northern and southern ends of Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada) en route to ...
Optical detection and assessment of algal blooms
Concerns about harmful algal blooms (HABs) have grown in recent years. There is a pressing need for robust, quantitative, and cost-effective methods to detect and characterize algal blooms. Critical applications of these ...

Relationships between vertical mixing and photoadaptation of phytoplankton: Similarity criteria
In their natural environment phytoplankton are exposed to fluctuations in incident irradiance due to vertical displacements in the water column induced by turbulent fluid motion. A reaction-diffusion model is analyzed to ...
New production in the warm waters of the Tropical Pacific Ocean
The average depth-integrated rate of new production in the tropical Pacific Ocean was estimated from a calculation of horizontal and vertical nitrate balance over the region enclosed by the climatological 26 degree C ...
A relationship between heat transfer to sea ice and temperature-salinity properties of Arctic Ocean waters
It is demonstrated that the characteristic temperature-salinity relationship shown by thermocline waters of the Arctic Ocean can be reproduced using a simple model based on transfer of heat directly from these waters to ...
Madden-Julian Oscillation and sea level: Local and remote forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2010-01)
The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is the dominant mode of atmospheric variability in the tropical atmosphere on intraseasonal time scales (i.e., weeks to seasons). This study examines the connection between the MJO and ...
