Invasive range expansion by the Humboldt squid, Dosidicus gigas, in the eastern North Pacific
A unique 16-year time series of deep video surveys in Monterey Bay reveals that the Humboldt squid, Dosidicus gigas, has substantially expanded its perennial geographic range in the eastern North
Deep pelagic biology
Findings in the deep water column reveal a deep-water fauna that is complex and diverse and still very poorly known, including the role of gelatinous animals in deep pelagic ecology.
Vertical and horizontal migrations by the jumbo squid Dosidicus gigas revealed by electronic tagging
Dosidicus gigas is a large and powerful oceanic squid that is economically valuable and eco- logically important in the eastern Pacific Ocean. We employed electronic tagging methods to provide the
Oceanographic and biological effects of shoaling of the oxygen minimum zone.
Olympic oxygen minimum zones have expanded over the past 50 years, and this expansion is predicted to continue as the climate warms worldwide, and shoaling of the upper boundaries of the OMZs accompanies OMZ expansion.
Biologic and geologic characteristics of cold seeps in Monterey Bay, California
Cold seep communities discovered at three previously unknown sites between 600 and 1000 m in Monterey Bay, California, are dominated by chemoautotrophic bacteria (Beggiatoa sp.) and vesicomyid clams
Mesopelagic zone ecology and biogeochemistry - a synthesis
G gaps in knowledge are identified and suggestions made for priority research programmes that will improve the ability to predict the effects of climate change on carbon sequestration.
Free-Drifting Icebergs: Hot Spots of Chemical and Biological Enrichment in the Weddell Sea
It is suggested that free-drifting icebergs can substantially affect the pelagic ecosystem of the Southern Ocean and can serve as areas of enhanced production and sequestration of organic carbon to the deep sea.
Seasonal abundance of the siphonophore, Nanomia bijuga, in Monterey Bay
Abstract Quantitative video surveys, conducted in the upper 1000 m in Monterey Bay from an ROV, showed that the year-round population of the siphonophore Nanomia bijuga occupied a daytime depth range
Giant Larvacean Houses: Rapid Carbon Transport to the Deep Sea Floor
A 10-year time-series study of the water column off Monterey Bay, California, revealed that the discarded mucus feeding structures of giant larvaceans carry a substantial portion of the upper ocean's productivity to the deep seabed.
Distribution of the Midwater Fishes of the Gulf of California
The community is composed mainly of tropical forms but its proportional composition is unique to the Gulf, and water mass structure and surface water characteristics are considered as determinants.
