Linking the physiology and ecology of Cochlodinium to better understand harmful algal bloom events: A comparative approach
Abstract The red tide forming dinoflagellate genus Cochlodinium appears to be expanding globally, as well as blooming and/or causing more economic losses within its previously reported geographicExpand

Determining indicator taxa across spatial and seasonal gradients in the Columbia River coastal margin
Bacterioplankton communities are deeply diverse and highly variable across space and time, but several recent studies demonstrate repeatable and predictable patterns in this diversity. We expanded onExpand

Impact of Haida Eddies on chlorophyll distribution in the Eastern Gulf of Alaska
Mesoscale Haida eddies influence the distribution of surface phytoplankton in the eastern Gulf of Alaska through two processes: enhanced productivity in central eddy water, and seaward advection ofExpand

Development of synthetic salinity from remote sensing for the Columbia River plume
[1] The Columbia River plume (CRP) is an ecologically important source of nutrients, pollutants, and fresh water to the Oregon/Washington shelf. It is traditionally under-sampled, with observationsExpand

Influence of zinc and iron enrichments on phytoplankton growth in the northeastern subarctic Pacific
Near-surface seawater from the northeastern subarctic Pacific was incubated on deck for 8 d, supplemented with (1) control, no additions (2) 1Zn (3) 1Fe (4) 1Zn1Fe. Concentrations of total Zn and FeExpand

Multiple trophic levels fueled by recirculation in the Columbia River plume
[1] Large rivers represent gateways for the transport of terrigenous and anthropogenic material to the coastal ocean. Here we document a ∼700 km2 recirculation or bulge associated with the ColumbiaExpand

Myrionecta rubra population genetic diversity and its cryptophyte chloroplast specificity in recurrent red tides in the Columbia River estuary
For several decades, annually recurring blooms of the photosynthetic ciliate Myrionecta rubra have been observed in the Columbia River estuary in late summer. In an effort to understand the dynamicsExpand

Protist 18S rRNA gene Sequence Analysis Reveals Multiple Sources of Organic Matter Contributing to Turbidity Maxima of the Columbia River Estuary
The Columbia River estuary is traditionally considered a detritus-based ecosystem fueled in summer by organic matter (OM) from expired freshwater diatoms. Since Estuarine Turbidity Maxima (ETM) areExpand

Planktonic growth and grazing in the Columbia River plume region: a biophysical model study
[1] A four-box model of planktonic nutrient cycling was coupled to a high-resolution hindcast circulation model of the Oregon-Washington coast to assess the role of the Columbia River plume inExpand

Impacts on phytoplankton biomass and productivity in the Pacific Northwest during the warm ocean conditions of 2005
[1] Delayed onset of the spring transition and upwellingfavorable winds in the Pacific Northwest during springsummer 2005 resulted in a positive temperature anomaly and a pronounced negative anomalyExpand
