Myers, Paul G., Li, Michelle, Freeland, Howard
Mixed layer depth (MLD) is computed, based upon historical measurements along Line P, in the Gulf of Alaska. Forty-six years of data are used for the monthly climatological calculations. To examine variability, the data are divided into two periods, pre and post 1976. Mixed layers deepen in...
Application of Airborne, Laboratory, and Field Hyperspectral Methods to Mineral Exploration in the Canadian Arctic: Recognition and Characterization of Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide-Associated Hydrothermal Alteration in the Izok Lake Deposit Area, Nunavut, CanadaDownload
Laakso, K.,, Rivard, B.,, Peter, J.M., White, H.P., Maloley, M., Harris, J., Rogge, D.
We have investigated the application of ground, laboratory, and airborne optical remote sensing methods for the detection of hydrothermal alteration zones associated with the Izok Lake volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposit in Nunavut, Canada. This bimodal-felsic Zn-Cu-Pb-Ag deposit is...
Muilwijk, Morven, Ilicak, Mehmet, Cornish, Sam B., Danilov, Sergey, Gelderloos, Renske, Gerdes, Rudiger, Haid, Verena, Haine, Thomas W. N., Johnson, Helen L., Kostov, Yavor, Kovacs, Tamas, Lique, Camille, Marson, Juliana M., Myers, Paul G., Scott, Jeffery, Smedsrud, Lars H., Talandier, Claude, Wang, Qiang
Multimodel Arctic Ocean “climate response function” experiments are analyzed in order to explore the effects of anomalous wind forcing over the Greenland Sea (GS) on poleward ocean heat transport, Atlantic Water (AW) pathways, and the extent of Arctic sea ice. Particular emphasis is placed on the...
Arctic cod (Boreogadus saida) hatching in the Hudson Bay system: Testing of the freshwater winter refuge hypothesisDownload
Schembri, Sarah, Deschepper, Inge, Myers, Paul G., Sirois, Pascal, Fortier, Louis, Bouchard, Caroline, Maps, Frederic
Buoyant Arctic cod (Boreogadus saida) eggs are found at the surface or at the ice-water interface in winter. While winter temperatures in saline waters fall below 0 degrees C, the temperature in areas affected by under-ice river plumes is slightly higher. Under-ice river plumes may therefore...
Assessing the Role of High-Frequency Winds and Sea Ice Loss on Arctic Phytoplankton Blooms in an Ice-Ocean-Biogeochemical ModelDownload
de la Guardia, L. Castro, Garcia-Quintana, Y., Claret, M., Hu, X., Galbraith, E. D., Myers, Paul G.
The long-term trend of increasing phytoplankton net primary production (NPP) in the Arctic correlates with increasing light penetration due to sea ice loss. However, recent studies suggest that enhanced stormy wind mixing may also play a significant role enhancing NPP. Here, we isolate the role...
Barbedo, Lucas, Belanger, Simon, Lukovich, Jennifer V., Myers, Paul G., Tremblay, Jean-Eric
Pulses of ocean primary productivity during the fall season are frequent in the mid-latitudes when ocean cooling and wind-driven turbulence erode the surface stratification and allow the injection of nutrients into the euphotic zone. This phenomenon is often referred to as a phytoplankton fall...
Dmitrenko, Igor A., Myers, Paul G., Kirillov, Sergei A., Babb, David G., Volkov, Denis L., Lukovich, Jennifer V., Tao, Ran, Ehn, Jens K., Sydor, Kevin, Barber, David G.
Hudson Bay of northern Canada receives upward of 700 km3 of river discharge annually. Cyclonic water circulation in Hudson Bay transports this massive volume of riverine water along the coast toward Hudson Strait and into the Labrador Sea. However, synoptic, seasonal and interannual variability...
Paleontology is a multi-faceted subject that involves taxonomy and community analysis as two of its cornerstones. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches have been incorporated into the various methods employed in such analyses. Each paleontologist obvious has his or her own preference that...
CSIB v1 (Canadian Sea-ice Biogeochemistry): a sea-ice biogeochemical model for the NEMO community ocean modelling frameworkDownload
Hayashida, Haskase, Christian, James R., Holdsworth, Amber M., Hu, Xianmin, Monahan, Adam H., Mortenson, Eric, Myers, Paul G., Riche, Olivier G. J., Sou, Tessa, Steiner, Nadja S.
Process-based numerical models are a useful tool for studying marine ecosystems and associated biogeochemical processes in ice-covered regions where observations are scarce. To this end, CSIB v1 (Canadian Sea-ice Biogeochemistry version 1), a new sea-ice biogeochemical model, has been developed...
The fact that Canadian Arctic ice is melting is not in contention-it's the rate at which ice is melting and what melting ice means for the future of the Northwest Passage that ignite controversy. According to Huebert (2003). data from satellite imagery suggest that the rate of melt in the...
