This technical report summarizes the
results of a three year study of the zooplankton
living in the nearshore zone off
Newport, Oregon. The sampling program was
part of the Early Life History (ELH) project
of the Oregon State University Sea Grant Program
and was designed to study the ecology
3) The standard deviations of the SST anomalies in the HadISST1.1 dataset are 0.2–0.4°C smaller prior to 1949 than after 1949. This nonstationarity could complicate interpretations of the long HadISST1.1 data record for some studies of climate variability. It is likely attributable mostly to the improved sampling of SST observations...
Artificial radionuclides, induced in water used as a coolant in the Hanford reactors, are discharged into the Pacific Ocean by the Columbia River. Gamma-ray spectrometric measurements show that levels of 65Zn decrease in both sediments and benthic animals with distance from the mouth of the river and with depth of...
