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

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

Decadal-scale regime shifts in the large marine ecosystems of the North-east Pacific: a case for historical science
There are two fundamental ways of doing science: the experimental-predictive and the historical-descriptive. The experimental-predictive approach uses the techniques of controlled experiment, theExpand

Effects of interdecadal climate variability on the oceanic ecosystems of the NE Pacific
ABSTRACTA major reorganization of the North-east Pacific biotatranspired following a climatic ‘regime shift’ in the mid1970s. In this paper, we characterize the effects ofinterdecadal climate forcingExpand

Separation of foraging habitat among breeding sites of a colonial marine predator, the northern fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus)
This study examines whether lactating northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus) from different breeding sites on the Pribilof Islands in the eastern Bering Sea forage in separate areas. SatelliteExpand

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

Top-down modeling and bottom-up dynamics: Linking a fisheries-based ecosystem model with climate hypotheses in the Northern California Current
Abstract In this paper we present results from dynamic simulations of the Northern California Current ecosystem, based on historical estimates of fishing mortality, relative fishing effort, andExpand

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

Marine and freshwater climatic factors affecting interannual variation in the timing of return migration to fresh water of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka)
Interannual variation in the timing of the return migration to fresh water of adult sockeye salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, from 46 populations throughout the species North American range was examined inExpand
