Extracellular enzyme activity of particle-associated and free-living bacteria in the oxygen deficient zone of the Eastern Tropical North Pacific
The downward export of particulate organic matter (POM) in the water column is a globally important mechanism for carbon sequestration in the deep ocean. It is well understood that Oxygen Deficient Zones (ODZs) more efficiently export POM with depth compared to oxic waters. However, the role of microbial hydrolytic activity ...
210Pb Accumulation Rates in Andvord Bay, Western Antarctic Peninsula
With the rate of temperature rise on the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) being six times higher than the global average, the effects of modern climate change on glacier dynamics and meltwater production hold particular significance for sediment accumulation rates. Few data exist for examining the subbasin variability of ...
Combining SST data from buoys and climate models to predict climate thresholds for the past, present, and future of the Pacific Northwest
Sea surface temperature (SST) of water is widely used to gauge the effects of climate change on the world’s oceans. By focusing on the Pacific Northwest, I examined the ramifications of increased likelihood for extreme warm anomalies for a particular region as opposed to a global scale and see when this should be expected to ...
Evaluating Video Imagery as a Method for Monitoring Nearshore Ecosystem Change
Documentation, communication, and explanation of the impacts of climate change on the sensitive nearshore ecosystem rely on tools that provide transparency about the technology and accessibility to the data. When used as a scientific tool, video documentation provides spatially uninterrupted documentation which can be repeated ...
Climate Change Impacts on Fine Scale Patch Dynamics of Lakes and Estuaries
Marine organisms such as phytoplankton and zooplankton are sensitive to the spatial and temporal patchiness of their ecosystems. Properties such as temperature can greatly influence their movement, growth, and survivability. Current efforts towards patch detection have focused on satellite, seaglider, and CTD data of open ...
