Paleoclimate records from glacial Indian and Pacific oceans sediments document millennial-scale fluctuations of subsurface dissolved oxygen levels and denitrification coherent with North Atlantic temperature oscillations. Yet the mechanism of this...

Subsurface upper ocean waters off Oregon and Vancouver Island were about 1° cooler in July 2002 than in July 2001. The anomalously cool layer coincides with the permanent halocline which has salinities of 32.2 to 33.8, suggesting an invasion of...

Zonal and meridional Seasoar sections centered at 1°50’S, 156°06’E were repeated >30 times in three 20-day periods between November 13, 1992, and February 15, 1993. Both sections were 130 km long, and sampling depth was 0–280 m, with a vertical...

This special section discusses a rare phenomenon: strong enhancement of Subarctic influence in the California Current system in the summer of 2002. This cold, fresh anomaly in the upper halocline was more extreme than any prior observation, though...

A pair of high-resolution oceanographic surveys in March and April 1995 revealed a large and rapid transition from late winter to spring conditions in the coastal zone off central and southern California. These data are unique in capturing the...

Horizontal wave number spectra of temperature in the unstably stratified oceanic surface layer were determined from measurements on a bow boom at a depth of 2 m. Spectra were estimated in the wavelength band from 2 m to 2 km, normalized in...

In July 1993 we collected hydrographic data and information on chlorophyll distribution on the continental shelf north of Cape Hatteras and across the shelf break at Cape Hatteras. The data show that a warm, transparent mixed layer lies over much...

Satellite data from the Geosat altimeter and the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) are used to show the large-scale structure of the surface circulation of the California Current System in summer. These data show the connection...

Surface transports into the California Current are calculated from TOPEX/POSEIDON altimeter surface height slopes during the 9.5 year period from October 1992–May 2002. These quantify the anomalous onshore and southward displacements of the water...

Data from Geosat and TOPEX altimeters are used to infer the structure of the Peru-Chile Countercurrent, a jet that flows from at least as far north as 10ºS (historical data suggests 7ºS) to 35º–40ºS, maintaining its position between approximately...

The first three years of SeaWiFS data (1997-2000) provide the most complete quantification to date of chlorophyll seasonal variability along the full latitudinal extent of the four major eastern boundary currents (EBCs). Comparisons to previously...

Five years (1997–2002) of northern California Current SeaWiFS ocean color data put cold, low salinity hydrographic anomalies observed in summer 2002 into a spatial/temporal context and present their biological ramifications. Monthly mean...

This paper details the historical coastal evolution of the Columbia River littoral cell in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Geological data from A.D. 1700 and records leading up to the late 1800s provide insights to the natural system...

The highstanding islands of Oceania are recognized as a source of significant particulate organic carbon delivered to nearshore marine environments. The existing data on carbon export in Oceania are largely derived from small mountainous...

Analysis of sediments from two wind-driven upwelling systems, Guaymas and Cariaco basins, using the alkenonebased U_37^(K^' ) paleothermometer yielded high-resolution records of sea surface temperatures (SST) from 1700 to 2000 AD. The trends in...

Although an inordinate fraction of the global sediment flux to the ocean occurs in tropical mountainous river margins, little is known regarding the sources and fate of organic matter in these systems. To address these knowledge gaps, the...

In tidally dominated deltas, sediment discharged from the river sources must transit through an estuarine region located within the distributary channels, where particle pathways can undergo significant transformations. Water column profiles and...

Bioturbating infauna significantly modify reaction and transport processes in permeable sediments, though most studies to date are limited in the scope of species examined. We conducted a comparative field study measuring density-dependent effects...

We tested the role of benthic infaunal functional diversity in regulating the biogeochemistry of nearshore sediments using laboratory microcosms. Single and multispecies assemblages of deposit-feeding polychaetes (Clymenella torquata, Spio setosa,...

Three-component (NPZ), four-component (NPZD), and five-component (NNPZD) nitrogen-based ecosystem models are compared. The fixed points of the zerodimensional systems, with no spatial variation except light attenuation by water, are determined. A...

Dynamical assimilation of surface elevation from tide gauges is investigated to estimate the bottom drag coefficient and surface stress as a first step in improving modeled tidal and wind-driven circulation in the Chesapeake Bay. A two-dimensional...

The behavior of three ecosystem models is analyzed for upwelling off the Oregon coast as a function of the number of model components. The first ecosystem model includes dissolved inorganic nitrogen-phytoplankton-zooplankton (NPZ), the second...

Three-dimensional ecosystem response to wind forcing on the continental shelf off Oregon is studied using a five-component nitrogen-based ecosystem model coupled to a high-resolution circulation model. We investigate, in particular, the influence...

Drilling in the Cascadia accretionary complex enable us to evaluate the contribution of dehydration reactions and gas hydrate dissociation to pore water freshening. The observed freshening with depth and distance from the prism toe is consistent...
