A modified galerkin-spectral model for three-dimensional, barotropic, wind-driven shelf circulation
The authors describe an efficient numerical scheme for calculating wind-driven currents on the continental shelf. Our scheme is based on the spectral approach introduced by Heaps and subsequently modified by Lardner. The ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
