Coastal Pacific hake (Merluccius productus) are known
to spawn in the southern California Bight from January
to March, migrate north during late spring and summer
to feed off Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia,
and then move back to southern California in the fall.
Juvenile Pacific hake nursery areas have been...
This study was conducted to determine the composition and size of prey consumed by northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus) in the eastern Bering Sea. Eighty three northern fur seals were collected in the summer and fall of 1981, 1982, and 1985 for examination of gastrointestinal contents. A total of 139...
The principal objective of this analysis is the
development of a methodological approach that would
permit a more complete evaluation of the physical and
economic consequences of prohibited species by-catch
(PSC) losses, such as occur in the harvest of groundfish.
To achieve efficient management of the several marine
Purpose: Stereotactic radiation therapy and stereotactic radiosurgery deliver radiation precisely to tumors, using special equipment to position and demobilize patients. The VisionRT system, with its component AlignRT, is a non-invasive stereotactic positioning and tracking system that uses cameras to capture infra-red images of patients, and process these images, to obtain...
The distribution of adult Pacific herring (Clupea harengue
pallasi) near Auke Bay, Lynn Canal, southeastern Alaska, varied by
depth and geographic area over 24 successive months during 1973-75.
From June through September, schools concentrated at 5- to 37-m
depths where zooplankton was abundant, and moderate currents were
present in a...
The distribution of herring (Clupea harengus pallasi) in
the Northeast Pacific extends from southern California to
northern Alaska. Studies on variation in herring life-history
are limited to local
characteristics and recruitment
populations or relatively restricted regions of the Northeast
Pacific. In this study I assessed herring life-history
patterns and recruitment...
The Bering Sea responds rapidly to atmospheric perturbations and over the past several decades has experienced extreme variability in both its physical and biological characteristics. These changes can
impact organisms that inhabit the region, particularly marine fishes, as normal current patterns to which
reproductive habits are tuned can be disrupted,...
Radiation film dosimetry process using the RIT 113 v.4 dosimetry software and the
film digitizer VXR-l2plus was used to evaluate the accuracy of electron dose
calculations of the RAHD radiation therapy treatment planning system at Samaritan
Regional Cancer Center. Kodak Ready-Pack EDR-2 film is recommended for
dose distribution analysis in...
The energy exchange characteristics of four common landscape types in the high semi-arid plateau in central Oregon, east of the Cascade Range, were evaluated during the summers of 1969 and 1971. The surfaces studied were pumice, meadow, forest, and marsh.
A portable environmental data acquisition system was developed for sampling...
The aim of this work is to develop a predator-prey model for two species of commercial importance captured by the European fishing fleet in the European Grounds. In this model, the hake (Merluccius merluccius) represents the predator, and the blue whiting (Micromesistius poutassou) is the prey. Both the predator and...
