Toward Long-Term Monitoring of the Gulf of Alaska Ecosystem, GAK1 Mooring Timeseries data, Seward, Alaska (1970-2012)

& Thomas C. Royer
This program continues a 40(+) year time series of temperature and salinity measurements at hydrographic station GAK 1. The data set, which began in 1970, now consists of monthly CTDs and a mooring with 6 - 7 temperature/conductivity recorders throughout the water column, a fluorometer and nitrate sensor at 20 m depth and a nitrate sensor at 150 m depth. The project monitors five important Alaska Coastal Current ecosystem parameters and to quantify and understand...

Pacific Herring (Clupea pallasii) Stable Isotope Tracers: Food Webs of Fishes-Prince William Sound, Alaska (1994-1998)

Thomas C. Kline
This project is a component of the Sound Ecosystem Assessment (SEA) program, a multi-disciplinary effort to acquire an ecosystem level understanding of the marine and freshwater processes that interact to constrain levels of fish, marine bird, and marine mammal production in Prince William Sound (PWS). Research conducted under the Sound Ecosystem Assessment project (SEA, /320) has shown that Pacific herring have significant dependence on Gulf of Alaska carbon. Accordingly, herring are subject to changes in...

Ecology and demographics of Pacific sand lance in Lower Cook Inlet, Alaska: 1997 - 1999

Martin Robards & John Piatt
Study History: The purpose of this study was to characterize the basic ecology, distribution, and demographics of sand lance in lower Cook Inlet. Recent declines of upper trophic level species in the northern Gulf of Alaska have been linked to decreasing availability of forage fishes. Sand lance is the most important forage fish in most nearshore areas of the northern Gulf. Despite its importance to commercial fish, seabirds, and marine mammals, little is known or...

Geographic Extent, Temporal Persistence and Mapping of Floating Oil from the the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill: 1989

Marshal Kendziorek
Information about this project comes from the original project proposal submitted in October, 1989. No Final Report is available. The general mission of this Natural Resource Damage Assessment floating oil mapping effort was to document the extent, amount and persistence of oil resulting from the EXXON VALDEZ oil spill. Maps have been produced on a regular basis showing the location of oil from aerial surveys from the first day of the spill on March 24,...

Observer classification of live, mechanically damaged, and dead pink salmon eggs

Mark Carls, John Thedinga & Robert Thomas
Susceptibility of pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) eggs to mechanical damage (shock) was studied to test the ability of observers to discriminate among live, dead, and shocked eggs. In a series of six laboratory trials, the mean error rate in discrimination did not exceed 12% and was less than or equal to 3.5% in 4 of 6 trials. The most common error was misclassification of shocked eggs as live (less than or equal to 9 +/-...

Summary of influenza A subtypes in wild birds from GenBank and 49 studies

& Sarah Olson
Wild aquatic birds are recognized as the natural reservoir of avian influenza A viruses (AIV), but across high and low pathogenic AIV strains, scientists have yet to rigorously identify all competent hosts and subtypes. We examined 11,870 GenBank records to provide insight into patterns of global AIV subtype diversity and richness. Further, we conducted an extensive literature review and communicated directly with scientists to accumulate data from 49 study locations and over 250,000 birds. We...

East Amatuli Island Remote Video Link Project - 1999

Michael O'Meara & Arthur Kettle
Two remotely operated video cameras were installed near common murre (Uria aalge) field observation posts at E. Amatuli Island on 22 May. Live images were transmitted to Homer by microwave via a repeater atop Mt. Bede, on the southwestern Kenai Peninsula. Between 23 June and 4 September Pratt Museum and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff worked in the museum with the cameras as public interpreters and data collectors. They helped teach nearly 15,000 visitors...
