It was found that in the Columbia River coastal margin, freshwater-influenced environments were consistent and predictable, whereas coastal ocean community variability was difficult to interpret due to complex physical conditions.

Development of synthetic salinity from remote sensing for the Columbia River plume
 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 observations…
Multiple trophic levels fueled by recirculation in the Columbia River plume
A ∼700 km2 recirculation or bulge associated with the Columbia River plume that retains recently discharged river water sufficiently to create a regional bioreactor is documented.
Myrionecta rubra population genetic diversity and its cryptophyte chloroplast specificity in recurrent red tides in the Columbia River estuary
Using a multigene approach, it is shown that the bloom-forming variant of M. rubra appears to harbor the same cryptophyte chloroplast in recurring blooms, and the notion of an association (either endosymbiosis or kleptoplastidy) between T. amphioxeia and the Bloom-form- ing M. Rubra variant is supported.
Planktonic growth and grazing in the Columbia River plume region: a biophysical model study
 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 in…

The results demonstrate that activated PS is an effective chemical biocide against species of marine phytoplankton and the lack of harmful byproducts produced during application makes PS an attractive alternative to other biocides currently in use for ballast water treatments and merits further testing at a larger scale.
New insights into the controls and mechanisms of plankton productivity in coastal upwelling waters of the Northern California Current System
conducted on the US West Coast in the northern California Current System. Although each project had a unique scientific focus, all four addressed the mechanisms causing eastern boundary current…
