    This article presents the results and validation of a comprehensive, multi-decadal, hindcast simulation performed using the New York Harbor Observing and Prediction System´s (NYHOPS) three-dimensional hydrodynamic model.

    Abstract. River inputs can significantly affect carbon dynamics in the costal ocean. Here, we investigate the influence of four rivers (Isonzo/Soča, Timavo/Reka, Rižana, and Dragonja) on inorganic carbon (C) in the Gulf of Trieste in the northern Adriatic Sea using stable isotope signatures of dissolved inorganic carbon (δ 13 C DIC).In , rivers exported × 10 11 g C in the form of   Development of the unmanaged waved whelk (Buccinum undatum) fishery on the Mid-Atlantic continental shelf of the United States has initiated investigation into fisheries-related biological and population attributes of the species in this region. Maturation and reproduction timing vary by location for this species and are likely linked to bottom water ://

      Marine biodiversity of the United States (U.S.) is extensively documented, but data assembled by the United States National Committee for the Census of Marine Life demonstrate that even the most complete taxonomic inventories are based on records scattered in space and time. The best-known taxa are those of commercial importance. Body size is directly correlated with knowledge of a species ?id=/ Assessments of the impact of construction, operation, and removal of large infrastructures and other human activities on the marine environment are limited because they do not fully quantify the background baseline conditions and relevant scales of natural variability. Baselines as defined in Environmental Impact Assessments typically reflect the status of the environment and its variability

Based on the standard errors of the individual cruise means, SST and salinity varied substantially through the season, while density did not vary markedly (Fig. 2, Abstract. The north-eastern continental shelf of North America, which includes the Middle Atlantic Bight, Georges Bank, the Gulf of Maine, and the Scotian Shelf (Fig.

), encompasses habitat for many pelagic and demersal species and some of the most productive fishing grounds in the North-west Atlantic ://   But that difference was relatively short lived, as there was an influx into the Gulf of Maine of higher salinity, nutrient rich water during the last two cruises in (Fig.
