On the 20th anniversary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, a network of very large marine protected areas (the Big Ocean network) has emerged as a key strategy in the move to arrest marine decline and conserve some of the last remaining relatively undisturbed marine areas on the globe. Here we outline the ecological, economic and policy benefits of(More)
Climate-driven Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ) expansions in the geologic record provide an opportunity to characterize the spatial and temporal scales of OMZ change. Here we investigate OMZ expansion through the global-scale warming event of the most recent deglaciation (18-11 ka), an event with clear relevance to understanding modern anthropogenic climate(More)
Heckman and Vytlacil (1) synthesize and extend a recent body of research in economics and statistics on the identification and estimation of treatment effects when the subjects have heterogeneous responses. This research has demonstrated the importance of distinguishing between several different types of treatment effects and the need to establish firmly(More)
The method presented describes the direct determination of lead in evaporated milk in which the milk ashing step prior to analysis is eliminated. Digital instrument readout units are microgram Pb/mL milk. Total analysis time after instrument calibration is less than 3 min per sample. Range of the method is 0.05-1.0 ppm lead in milk, and precision of the(More)

A method for the direct determination of lead in evaporated milk and in fruit juice with no prior sample digestion was successfully collaborated by 13 laboratories. The anodic stripping voltammetric (ASV) method studied consisted of adding 0.2 mL aliquots of evaporated milk or 0.3 mL aliquots of fruit juice to 2.9 mL of a dechelating reagent, Metexchange.(More)
