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 ...
Circulation time, blood reserves and extracellular space in a cephalopod
Octopus vulgaris Cuvier has a fully enclosed blood system that includes large blood sinuses behind the eyes and around the gut. It would be useful to know the mean circulation time, the minimal number of heartbeats needed ...
Compartmental models of nitrogen cycling in tropical and temperate marine environments
Time-course measurements of super(15)N tracer kinetics in particulate organic and in NH super(+) sub(4) pools from tropical and temperate regions were used to test several compartmental models describing the exchange of ...
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 ...
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, ...
