A Pacific Interdecadal Climate Oscillation with Impacts on Salmon Production
Evidence gleaned from the instrumental record of climate data identifies a robust, recurring pattern of ocean–atmosphere climate variability centered over the midlatitude North Pacific basin. OverExpand

The Pacific Decadal Oscillation
The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) has been described by some as a long-lived El Niño-like pattern of Pacific climate variability, and by others as a blend of two sometimes independent modesExpand

Empirical evidence for North Pacific regime shifts in 1977 and 1989
Abstract It is now widely accepted that a climatic regime shift transpired in the North Pacific Ocean in the winter of 1976–77. This regime shift has had far reaching consequences for the largeExpand

The Pacific Decadal Oscillation, Revisited
AbstractThe Pacific decadal oscillation (PDO), the dominant year-round pattern of monthly North Pacific sea surface temperature (SST) variability, is an important target of ongoing research withinExpand

Potential responses to climate change in organisms with complex life histories: evolution and plasticity in Pacific salmon
Salmon life histories are finely tuned to local environmental conditions, which are intimately linked to climate. We summarize the likely impacts of climate change on the physical environment ofExpand

Inverse Production Regimes: Alaska and West Coast Pacific Salmon
Abstract A principal component analysis reveals that Pacific salmon catches in Alaska have varied inversely with catches from the U.S. West Coast during the past 70 years. If variations in catchExpand

Pacific–Decadal Oscillation (PDO)
The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) refers to cyclical variations in sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean. A detailed summary of the PDO is given in D’Aleo (this volume) and additionalExpand

Tracking environmental processes in the coastal zone for understanding and predicting Oregon coho (Oncorhynchus kisutch) marine survival
To better understand and predict Oregon coho (Oncorhynchus kisutch) marine survival, we developed a conceptual model of processes occurring during four sequential periods: (1) winter climate prior toExpand

North Pacific climate recorded in growth rings of geoduck clams: A new tool for paleoenvironmental reconstruction
[1] To better understand North Pacific climate variability at interannual to interdecadal scales, we have developed a new tool for paleoenvironmental reconstruction. We show that growth rings inExpand

Methods for detecting regime shifts in large marine ecosystems: a review with approaches applied to North Pacific data
This note provides a brief review of five analytical methods previously used or promoted for diagnosing regime shifts in marine ecosystems. Expand
