A marine system model applied to the North West European shelf seas is used to simulate the consequences of distinct CO(2) additions such as those that could arise from a failure of geological sequestration schemes. The choice of leak scenario is guided by only a small number of available observations and requires several assumptions; hence the simulations(More)
A three-dimensional ecosystem model of the NW European continental shelf is used to simulate the seasonal cycle of nutrients (N, P, Si) and primary and secondary production during 1995. Nutrient budgets within areas of the shelf are calculated and their component parts (advective, benthic, pelagic, riverine, recycling) are examined. Nutrient fluxes across(More)
Through multiple-scales and symmetry arguments we derive a model set of amplitude equations describing the interaction of two steady-state pattern-forming instabilities, in the case that the wavelengths of the instabilities are nearly in the ratio 1 : 2. In the case of exact 1 : 2 resonance the amplitude equations are ODEs; here they are PDEs. We discuss(More)
We present the largest, most homogeneous catalogue of merging galaxies in the nearby universe obtained through the Galaxy Zoo project-an interface on the worldwide web enabling large-scale morphological classification of galaxies through visual inspection of images from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The method converts a set of visually-inspected(More)
A two-dimensional coupled physical-biological model is described and used to compute the annual cycle of primary production across the Hebridean shelf and slope based on information collected during the Land Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS), with the focus on data for 1995. Calculations of modelled carbon and nitrate fluxes indicate an annual on-shelf(More)
Shelf and coastal seas are regions of exceptionally high biological productivity, high rates of biogeochemical cycling and immense socio-economic importance. They are, however, poorly represented by the present generation of Earth system models, both in terms of resolution and process representation. Hence, these models cannot be used to elucidate the role(More)
There have been many individual phytoplankton datasets collected across Australia since the mid 1900s, but most are unavailable to the research community. We have searched archives, contacted researchers, and scanned the primary and grey literature to collate 3,621,847 records of marine phytoplankton species from Australian waters from 1844 to the present.(More)
