Physical-biological interactions in the Southern Ocean were investigated using remote sensing data from several different satellite sensors. Satellite sea surface temperature data were used to study the dynamics of the Antarctic Polar Front (PF). Satellite ocean color data were used to estimate surface chlorophyll concentrations and their relation to various...
The major historical studies that have examined American
biology have emphasized the development of experimental biology at
the end of the nineteenth century. In this characterization, the
descriptive branch of biology has often been treated as less than
important and, in several cases, as a hindrance in the application
Satellite ocean color data from the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) were used to examine distributions of chlorophyll concentration within the Southern Ocean for the period of October 1997 through September 1998. Over most of the Southern Ocean, mean chlorophyll concentrations remained quite low (<0.3-0.4 mg m¯³). Phytoplankton blooms where...
This study tested multiple hydrologic mechanisms to explain snowpack dynamics in extreme
rain-on-snow floods, which occur widely in the temperate and polar regions. We examined 26, 10 day
large storm events over the period 1992–2012 in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in western Oregon,
using statistical analyses (regression, ANOVA, and...

In addition to the well-characterized genomic mechanism of steroid action that uses
intracellular receptors, steroid hormones also signal through nongenomic processes
that use membrane receptors. A membrane receptor for corticosterone (CORT) has
been described in brains of the roughskin newt (Taricha granulosa). This receptor is
believed to be a G-protein...
Prostate cancer is responsible for a substantial loss of life and burden of
suffering among adult males. Evidence suggests that the risk of morbidity and
mortality from prostate cancer can be reduced through specific screening and
dietary practices (MCI, 2002; Ries et al., 2002). Further evidence suggests that
The location of the Antarctic Polar Front (PF) was mapped over a 7-year period (1987-1993) within images of satellite-deprived sea surface temperature. The mean path of the PF is strongly steered by the topographic features of the Southern Ocean. The topography places vorticity constraints on the dynamics of the PF...
Analysis of satellite ocean color, sea surface temperature, and sea ice cover data reveals consistent patterns between biological production, iron availability, and physical forcings in the Southern Ocean. The consistency of these patterns, in conjunction with information on physical conditions during the last glacial maximum (LGM), enables estimates of export...
