A tidal and sea level survey was begun in Yaquina Bay, Oregon,
on 8 May, 1964. A continuous recording tide gage was installed at
the pier of the Oregon State University Marine Science Center.
An harmonic analysis of the observed data was made, and the
major tidal constants were compared...
The extent and mechanism of energy dissipation has been studied in Coos Bay, a coastal plain estuary. Coos Bay is located on the central Oregon coast, 184 nautical
miles south of Astoria, Oregon, and 35 nautical miles north of Cape Blanco. Past field work in Coos Bay and data obtained...

This report vas prepared at this time at the suggestion or the Director of Research of the Oregon Fish Commission. Most of the data upon which it is based were collected by Mr. L. D. Marriage and his assistants of the Oregon Fish Commission. These data are scheduled to be...
Influences of tidal and slower (subtidal) oceanic flows over the continental shelf and slope off Oregon are studied using a high-resolution ocean circulation model and comparative model-data analyses. The model is based on the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS), a fully nonlinear, three-dimensional model (using hydrostatic and Boussinesq approximations). The...
Factors affecting the persistence of mussels (Mytilus californianus) and their associated epibiont species were studied along the central Oregon coast. Interactions between mussels and their algal epibionts (Endocladia
muricata) varied in sign and strength with environmental conditions. In extreme temperatures mussel—epibiont interactions determined survival of individual mussels,
and persistence of...
While community ecologists have traditionally focused on local-scale processes, it has become apparent that a broader perspective, which explores the community-level ramifications of material fluxes within and between ecosystems, is necessary to effectively evaluate bottom-up influences on community structure and dynamics. In this dissertation, I employed ecosystem principles to understand...
