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 ...
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:email@example.com], [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 ...
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:firstname.lastname@example.org], [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 ...

Fatty acids as dietary tracers in benthic food webs
(Inter-Research, Nordbuente 23 Oldendorf/Luhe 21385 Germany, 2011)
Fatty acid (FA) analysis is a well-established tool for studying trophic interactions in marine habitats. However, its application to benthic food webs poses 2 particular challenges. First, unlike pelagic zooplankton, ...
Individual Variation in Migration Speed of Upriver-Migrating Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River in Relation to Their Physiological and Energetic Status at Marine Approach
(University of Chicago Press, P.O. Box 37005 Chicago IL 60637 USA, [mailto:email@example.com], [URL:http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/], 2008)
Little research has examined individual variation in migration speeds of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) in natural river systems or attempted to link migratory behavior with physiological and energetic status on a ...
Modelling phase shifts in a rocky subtidal ecosystem
(Inter-Research, Nordbuente 23 Oldendorf/Luhe 21385 Germany, [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org], [URL:http://www.int-res.com/], 2008-03)
The rocky subtidal ecosystem of the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia is characterised by 2 community states, kelp beds and urchin barrens that alternate on a decadal time scale. While the shift from barrens to a kelp bed ...
Inferred influence of nutrient availability on the relationship between Sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence and incident irradiance in the Bering Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2000 Florida Ave., N.W. Washington DC 20009 USA, [mailto:email@example.com], [URL:http://www.agu.org], 2008-08)
This study examines variability in the relationship between Sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence and incident solar irradiance as a potential diagnostic of the nutritional status of phytoplankton. The study site is the ...
