The balance of physical and biological processes governing phytoplankton growth rates and the accumulation of biomass is widely debated in the literature, notably during the winter–spring transition. Here we show, in a temperate shelf sea that variability in the depth of the actively mixing..
Mathematical modeling offers an avenue to predict distributions of microplastics in the ocean. With this goal in mind this study presents a simple analytic model describing the deterministic dynamics of long-time vertical motion of buoyant microplastics that have succumbed to biofouling in a..
Oceanography has entered an era of new observing platforms, such as biogeochemical-Argo floats and gliders, some of which will provide three-dimensional maps of essential ecosystem variables on the North-West European (NWE) Shelf. In a foreseeable future operational centers will use multi-platform..
Shellfish production is an important activity for the economy of many countries. As well as its direct value, it helps to stabilize communities in rural areas characterized by limited job opportunities. It is also important for consumers who recognize shellfish as a healthy product that gains..
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous within the marine environment. Despite increasing public and scientific attention to the issue, there still remain gaps in the knowledge of the full global extent of the distribution of this microplastic pollution. The presence and transportation of microplastics in..
Phytoplankton phenology and the length of the growing season have implications that cascade through trophic levels and ultimately impact the global carbon flux to the seafloor. Coupled hydrodynamic-ecosystem models must accurately predict timing and duration of phytoplankton blooms in order to..
Detailing the distribution of past and future plastic debris in the marine environment has become a pressing challenge. Plastic pollution poses a potential threat to marine organisms and the marine environment as a whole. Previous studies using Lagrangian particle models have identified five..
