Distributions of Pigments and Primary Production in a Gulf-Stream Meander
An investigation was made of physical effects of Gulf Stream meandering on the vertical and horizontal distributions of photosynthetic pigments and primary production. Cruises were conducted in the vicinity of a meander ...
Seasonal and spatial variations in methyl chloride in NW Atlantic waters
 Methyl chloride concentrations were measured in the upper 200 m of the water column of the NW Atlantic during three cruises along the same track in spring, summer and fall of 2003. Distinct seasonality was apparent, ...
Dichloromethane in North Atlantic waters
 Dichloromethane is an atmospheric trace gas that has a tropospheric lifetime on the order of 5 months and has major anthropogenic sources. Evidence has been presented for an oceanic source. This paper reports measurements ...
Risk vs. public reaction in marine oil spills: a case study analysis of six Atlantic Canadian marine vessel-sourced oil related incidents
Marine vessel-sourced oil related (MVSOR) incidents represent a potential threat to marine organisms and ecosystems in Atlantic Canada. The management of these incidents must involve management of the objective risks ...
Retrieval of phytoplankton biomass from simultaneous inversion of reflectance, the diffuse attenuation coefficient, and Sun-induced fluorescence in coastal waters
 A model has been developed to retrieve phytoplankton absorption, a proxy for phytoplankton biomass, from observations of reflectance ( R) and the diffuse attenuation coefficient (K-d) collected by moored radiometers ...
The mean surface circulation of the North Atlantic subpolar gyre: A comparison of estimates derived from new gravity and oceanographic measurements
A new mean sea surface topography (MSST) is used to estimate the surface circulation of the subpolar gyre of the northwest Atlantic. The MSST is produced using a new geoid model derived from a blend of gravity data from ...

Improving shark conservation and management in Canada: Recommendations for the National Plan of Action for Sharks
The International Plan of Action for the Conservation and Management of Sharks (IPOA-sharks) is a voluntary instrument developed by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). Its implementation on a national scale has ...
Narwhal co-management in Nunavut: Deepened collaboration needed to improve partnership, process and outcome
Since the ratification of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA) in 1993, narwhal harvesting in Nunavut has been governed by a formalized co-management regime. The Nunavut Wildlife Management Board, a body created under ...
