This study attempts to design MPAs to manage sea cucumbers in the coastal waters of Sri Lanka. A bio-economic model developed by Stefansson and Rosenberg (2005) was used in this study. In model simulation, area between 080170 - 060 500 N and 810 250 - 820 was considered and this...
Low-temperature hydrothermal activity in Iceland is
apparently mostly controlled by dikes and fractures.
Conventional methods of production data analysis are not
readily applicable in cases of heterogeneous/anisotropic
fracture dominated hydrothermal systems. Moreover, the
dikes and fractures may control the heat uptake mechanism
of low-temperature activity.
The free-surface response functions of...
A brief tilt and strain survey was conducted in the Krafla-Namafjall area in the North of Iceland during August of 1979 in order
to study the feasibility of applying solid earth tidal observations
in the exploration of volcanic geothermal systems. The rationale
of the survey was based on the expectation...
Individual Transferable Quota systems (ITQ's) were implemented in the Icelandic groundfish fisheries in 1984, or twenty years ago. The system was not a 'pure' ITQ system from the beginning, notably with different regulations for different fleet segments and with several changes along the way. The current system has mostly been...
A hierarchical classification system of Iceland's
watersheds and rivers is presented. The classification
is based on Iceland's substrate, climate, water, biota,
and human cultural influences. The geological formations
of Iceland are very different in character depending on
their age and formation history. Three major types of
formations occur: Tertiary, Plio-Pleistocene,...

A study of the population ecology of Columbia River fall chinook
salmon, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha (Walbaum), was made in an attempt
to determine the cause of a serious decline in this run which occurred
in the early 1950's. Fluctuations in abundance of major salmon runs
the North Pacific were examined to...
