  • The decomposition of the Faroe-Shetland Channel water masses using Parametric Optimum Multi-Parameter analysis 

    McKenna, C.; Berx, B.; Austin, William (2016-01) - Journal article
    The Faroe-Shetland Channel (FSC) is an important conduit for the poleward flow of Atlantic water towards the Nordic Seas and, as such, it plays an integral part in the Atlantic's thermohaline circulation. Mixing processes ...
  • Does presence of a mid-ocean ridge enhance biomass and biodiversity?

M.; Horton, Tammy; Neat, Francis; Lorance, Pascal (2013-05-02) - Journal article
    In contrast to generally sparse biological communities in open-ocean settings, seamounts and ridges are perceived as areas of elevated productivity and biodiversity capable of supporting commercial fisheries. We investigated ...
  • The ecosystem of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at the sub-polar front and Charlie-Gibbs Fracture Zone; ECO-MAR project strategy and description of the sampling programme 2007-2010 

    Priede, I.G.; Billett, D.S.M.; Brierley, A.S.; Hoelzel, A.R.; Inall, M.; Miller, P.I.; Cousins, N.J.; Shields, M.A.; Fujii, T. (2013-12-15) - Journal article
    The ECOMAR project investigated photosynthetically-supported life on the North Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) between the Azores and Iceland focussing on the Charlie-Gibbs Fracture Zone area in the vicinity of the sub-polar front ...
  • Investigating the surfacing and diving behaviour and availability of long-finned pilot whales and quantifying the effects of anthropogenic sound on density and strandings of cetaceans in the northeast Atlantic 

    Jewell, Rebecca (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-26) - Thesis
    The size and trend of a population is fundamental to the assessment of its conservation status, yet cetacean abundance data are often biased and lack statistical power to detect trends. As a result, the conservation status ...
  • Structure and dynamics of the Gulf of Maine humpback whale population 

    Robbins, J. (University of St Andrews, 2007-06) - Thesis
    Population structure and vital rates of Gulf of Maine (GOM) humpback whales, Megaptera novaeangliae, were studied by a combination of longitudinal data, region-wide surveys and modern mark-recapture statistical methods. ...
  • True’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon mirus) in Macaronesia 

    Aguilar de Soto, Natacha; Martín, Vidal; Silva, Monica; Edler, Roland; Reyes, Cristel; Carrillo, Manuel; Schiavi, Agustina; Morales, Talia; García-Ovide, Belen; Sanchez-Mora, Anna; Garcia-Tavero, Nerea; Steiner, Lisa; Scheer, Michael; Gockel, Roland; Walker, Dylan; Villa, Enrico; Szlama, Petra; Eriksson, Ida K.; Tejedor, Marisa; Perez-Gil, Monica; Quaresma, João; Bachara, Wojtek; Carroll, Emma (2017-03-07) - Journal article
    The True’s beaked whale (Mesoplodon mirus, True 1913) is a poorly known member of the Ziphiidae family. Its distribution in the northern hemisphere is thought to be restricted to the temperate or warm temperate waters of ...
