Mechanical vulnerability explains size-dependent mortality of reef corals
(2014-08) - Journal article,
Understanding life history and demographic variation among species within communities is a central ecological goal. Mortality schedules are especially important in ecosystems where disturbance plays a major role in structuring ...
A 3D stereo camera system for precisely positioning animals in space and time
(2015-04) - Journal article,
Here, we describe a portable stereo camera system that integrates a GPS receiver, an attitude sensor and 3D stereo photogrammetry to rapidly estimate the position of multiple animals in space and time. We demonstrate the ...
International Quiet Ocean Experiment science plan
(Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research / Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, 2015) - Report,
Sound production and associated behavior of tagged fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus) in the Southern California Bight
(2015-08-03) - Journal article,
Background: For marine animals, acoustic communication is critical for many life functions, yet individual calling behavior is poorly understood for most large whale species. These topics are important for understanding ...
Status and future of research on the behavioural responses of marine mammals to U.S. Navy sonar
(University of St Andrews, 2015) - Report,
A review of the status and future of research into behavioral responses of marine mammals to naval sonar exposure was undertaken to evaluate the return on investment of current US Navy funded programs, identify the data ...
The east coast of Scotland bottlenose dolphin population : improving understanding of ecology outside the Moray Firth SAC
(Department of Energy and Climate Change, 2014-05-07) - Report,
Assessing performance of Bayesian state-space models fit to Argos Satellite telemetry locations processed with Kalman Filtering
(2014-03-20) - Journal article,
Argos recently implemented a new algorithm to calculate locations of satellite-tracked animals that uses a Kalman filter (KF). The KF algorithm is reported to increase the number and accuracy of estimated positions over ...
Control of mode and intermediate water mass properties in Drake Passage by the Amundsen Sea low
(2013-07) - Journal article,
The evolution of the physical properties of Subantarctic Mode Water (SAMW) and Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) in the Drake Passage region are examined on time scales down to intraseasonal, within the 1969 - 2009 period. ...
An alternative method for correcting fluorescence quenching
(2015-01-13) - Journal article,
Under high light intensity, phytoplankton protect their photosystems from bleaching through non-photochemical quenching processes. The consequence of this is suppression of fluorescence emission, which must be corrected ...
