  • Murphy, Rosemary; Peng, Yu-Hsuan (Mary) (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-07)
    Previous studies on magnetotaxis behavior have found a diverse range of taxa, such as reptiles, birds, and even bacteria, that use magnetite to gather information about their geographic position based on gradients in the ...
  • Ziskina, Juliya (2015-04)
    What are our goals? Contribute to the public good by removing paywalls to UW scholarship. Improve the visibility of UW scholarship. Adopt an open access publications policy that facilitates free and public access to scholarly ...
  • Eissinger, Naomi; Enos, Philippe; Fenno, Gregory; Firoozi, Yasamine; Golomb, Michael; Guillory, Daniel; Harsch, Rina; Hubbell, Sophie; Klein, Joelle; Muilenburg, Cassandra; Nolan, Shannon; Speckhardt, Anja; Turin Sanchez, Fernando; Yoo, Ji Soo (2014)
    The European Union is at a turning point in its approach vis-à-vis security and international relations. The 2003 European Security Strategy (ESS) laid out a vision for the EU as an important player on the global stage, ...
  • Min, Brian (2011-03)
    Manganese (Mn) in hydrothermal vent plumes is an indicator of the vent characteristics that spawned the plume. Mn concentrations in Pele's Pit in Hawaii and the Cleft segment in the Juan de Fuca Ridge were compared. Mn was ...
  • Aoyama, Erina (2010-03-23)
    Japan is a country undergoing a crisis of aging. This study examines how biracial celebrities are perceived in Japan in an attempt to discover whether that country will accept immigration as a way to solve its population crisis.
  • Wilkins, Skylar (Friday Harbor Labs, 2011-12)
    Since 2005, one site has been studied in the San Juan Channel, located just off San Juan Island, Washington in the United States. This research has been done by the Pelagic Ecosystem Function Apprenticeship at the Friday ...

  • Davies, Evan (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2012-06)
    Suspended-sediment concentrations (SSCs) in the Elwha River and nearshore environment off the river mouth were observed in order to determine the effects of the Elwha dam removal project on sediment supply to the river and ...
  • Tuquero, Mariela (2013-06)
    [author supplied abstract] Accurate pH measurements are the foundation for assessing the extent of ocean acidification, and provide the motivation for this study. We present pH values along a cruise track that crosses ...
  • Petersen, Samantha (2011-03)
    The Loihi seamount is an active underwater volcano that has several known venting sites including Pele's Pit. CTD data were gathered and analyzed to characterize the recent volcanic activity of Pele's Pit. It was determined ...
  • Gedney, Marisa (2013-06)
    [author supplied abstract] This experiment took a mechanical design approach to analyzing aquatic energy loss through observing small scale water movement across a rough surface. The project was conducted in three ...
  • Lee, Leah; Merz, Rachel (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2013-12)
    Organisms have to behave within the range of mechanical properties of their body. Leptosynapta clarki, collected from False Bay, San Juan Island, WA, exhibited undocumented elongation behavior that might be associated ...
  • Richardson, Mikayla; Stephens, Tiffany (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2014-12)
    The meiofaunal assemblage on the invasive brown alga, Sargassum muticum, was compared to that on three native algal species. I predicted that differences in the meiofaunal diversity, abundance, and community composition ...
  • Barrett, Kelsey; Bryan, John; Chahary, Monica; Choe, Jeung Hwa (Victoria); Couser, Griffith; Gordon, Kitty (Makivik Corporation); Grosman, Jennifer; Halliday, Scott; Hamed, Zeina; Herke, Ahnalee; Hruska, Lauren; Kennedy, Colleen; Koperqualuk, Lisa (Makivik Corporation); Maltais, Dominic; Miller, Kelly; Selling, Kim (2011)
    Global warming has triggered fundamental ecological changes to the Arctic landscape. As the sea ice melts, greater access to lucrative natural resources and new shipping lanes is intensifying economic and political interest ...
  • Shomshor, Anton K. G. (2013-06)
    [author supplied abstract] Freshwater layers were discovered at intermediate depths north of the Kuroshio Extension front in February 2013. The anomalous layers of freshwater were determined to have originated in the Sea ...
  • Hausch, Paul; Swalla, Billie J. (Friday Harbor Labs, 2011-09)
    Ascidians and vertebrates share very similar chordate characteristics during their developmental stages. Since both lineages have highly conserved genomes we are able to make evolutionary comparisons between the two ...

  • Wang, Jennifer; Barsh, Russel; Ditsche, Petra (Friday Harbor Laboratories, 2014-06)
    The overabundance of one species in a particular area is typically bolstered by a biotic or abiotic factor that allows them to outcompete other species for space and resources. The undersides of the docks in the town of ...
  • Conery, Kathleen (2012)
    Our study seeks to gain more information on the migration and feeding patterns of two common intertidal carnivorous snails, Nucella lamellosa and Nucella ostrina. These whelks are native to the western coast of the United ...
