Article
Full-text available
The equatorial retroflection of the North Brazil Current (NBC) into the Equatorial Undercurrent (EUC) and its posterior tropical recirculation is a major regulator for the returning limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. Indeed, most surface and thermocline NBC waters retroflect at the equator all the way into the central and east...

The ocean is gaining prominence in climate change policy circles as a tool for addressing the climate crisis. Blue carbon, the carbon captured and stored by marine and coastal ecosystems and species, offers potential as a “nature-based solution” to climate change. The protection and restoration of specific ocean ecosystems can form part of a climat...
Article
Species shifts due to climate change are being recorded and reported worldwide. However, the accurate estimation and causal attribution of species shifts using spatial distribution indicators, such as the center of gravity, is challenging. This is particularly problematic for commercially exploited marine species with data from research surveys, co...

Full-text available
Here we explore the water transfer between the subtropical and tropical gyres of the South Atlantic Ocean to better understand its unique equatorward heat delivery. A Lagrangian technique is applied to the reanalysis product GLORYS2V4 in order to trace back the western boundary flow in the tropical (North Brazil Undercurrent, NBUC) and subtropical...
Article
Full-text available
Marine phytoplankton biomass and community structure are expected to change under global warming, with potentially significant impacts on ocean carbon, nutrient cycling, and marine food webs. Previous studies have indicated decreases of primary production and chlorophyll a concentrations and oligotrophic gyre expansions from satellite ocean-color m...
Article
Tuna are globally distributed species of major commercial importance and some tuna species are a major source of protein in many countries. Tuna are characterized by dynamic distribution patterns that respond to climate variability and long‐term change. Here we investigated the effect of environmental conditions on the worldwide distribution and re...
Article
Future scenarios of fish stocks and the impacts of climate variability and change on fisheries are critical to anticipate and minimize potential economic losses in this sector. In this study, we assessed the impact of recent sea warming and future climate change on anchovy in the Bay of Biscay, where sea surface temperature has increased in the las...
Article
A 1000-yr control simulation in a low-resolution coupled atmosphere-ocean model from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) family of climate models shows a natural, highly regular multidecadal oscillation between periods of Southern Ocean (SO) open-ocean convection and nonconvective periods. It is shown here that convective periods are a...
Article
Full-text available
Owing to their important roles in biogeochemical cycles, phytoplankton functional types (PFTs) have been the aim of an increasing number of ocean color algorithms. Yet, none of the existing methods are based on phytoplankton carbon (C) biomass, which is a fundamental biogeochemical and ecological variable and the ĝ€unit of accountingĝ€ in Earth sys...
Article
Full-text available
We use a novel satellite time series of size-partitioned phytoplankton biomass to construct and analyze classical and novel seasonality metrics. Biomass is computed from SeaWiFS ocean color data using retrievals of the particle size distribution with the KSM09 algorithm and existing allometric relationships to convert volume to carbon. The phenolog...

Full-text available
Changes in Southern Ocean (SO) phytoplankton distributions with future warming have the potential to significantly alter nutrient and carbon cycles as well as higher trophic level productivity both locally and throughout the global ocean. Here we investigate the response of SO phytoplankton productivity and biomass to 21st century climate change ac...

We analyse simulations of the Pacific Ocean oxygen minimum zones (OMZs) from 11 Earth system model contributions to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5, focusing on the mean state and climate change projections. The simulations tend to overestimate the volume of the OMZs, especially in the tropics and Southern Hemisphere. Compared to...

Organic matter (OM) plays a major role in both terrestrial and oceanic biogeochemical cycles. The amount of carbon stored in these systems is far greater than that of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) in the atmosphere, and annual fluxes of CO2 from these pools to the atmosphere exceed those from fossil fuel combustion. Understanding the processes that determi...

We analyze for the first time all 16 Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 models with explicit marine ecological modules to identify the common mechanisms involved in projected phytoplankton biomass, productivity, and organic carbon export changes over the twenty-first century in the RCP8.5 scenario (years 2080–2099) compared to the histor...

This paper is the third in a series on tests of gravity using observations of stars and nearby dwarf galaxies. We carry out four distinct tests using published data on the kinematics and morphology of dwarf galaxies, motivated by the theoretical work of Hui et al. (2009) and Jain and Vanderplas (2011). In a wide class of gravity theories a scalar f...
Article
Full-text available
Astrophysical tests of modified gravity theories in the nearby universe have been emphasized recently by Hui 2009 and Jain 2011. A key element of such tests is the screening mechanism whereby general relativity is restored in massive halos or high density environments like the Milky Way. In chameleon theories of gravity, including all f(R) models,...
Article
The possibility of measuring redshift space (RSD) distortions using photometric data have been recently highlighted. This effect complements and significantly alters the detectability of baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) in photometric surveys. In this paper we present measurements of the angular correlation function of luminous red galaxies (LRGs...
Article
Cosmological galaxy surveys aim at mapping the largest volumes to test models with techniques such as cluster abundance, cosmic shear correlations or baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO), which are designed to be independent of galaxy bias. Here we explore an alternative route to constrain cosmology: sampling more moderate volumes with the cross-corr...
Article
Near-future cosmology will see the advent of wide-area photometric galaxy surveys, such as the Dark Energy Survey (DES), that extend to high redshifts (z∼ 1–2) but give poor radial distance resolution. In such cases splitting the data into redshift bins and using the angular correlation function w(θ), or the Cℓ power spectrum, will become the stand...
Article
A new determination of the sound horizon scale in angular coordinates is presented. It makes use of ∼0.6 × 106 luminous red galaxies, selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey imaging data, with photometric redshifts. The analysis covers a redshift interval that goes from z= 0.5 to 0.6. We find evidence of the baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) sig...
Article
We outline how redshift-space distortions (RSD) can be measured from the angular correlation function, w(θ), of galaxies selected from photometric surveys. The natural degeneracy between RSD and galaxy bias can be minimized by comparing results from bins with top-hat galaxy selection in redshift, and bins based on the radial position of galaxy pair...
Article
Recent publications claim that there is no convincing evidence for measurements of the baryonic acoustic (BAO) feature in galaxy samples using either monopole or radial information. Different claims seem contradictory: data is either not consistent with the BAO model or data is consistent with both the BAO model and featureless models without BAO....
Article
We propose a new method for the extraction cosmological parameters using the baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) scale as a standard ruler in deep galaxy surveys with photometric determination of redshifts. The method consists in a simple empirical parametric fit to the angular two-point correlation function ω(θ). It is parametrized as a power law to...
Article
We present the three-point function ξ3 and Q3=ξ3/ξ22 for a spectroscopic sample of luminous red galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 6 and Data Release 7. We find a strong (signal-to-noise ratio > 6) detection of Q3 on scales of 55–125 Mpc/h, with a well-defined peak around 105 Mpc/h in all ξ2, ξ3 and Q3, in excellent agre...
Article
This is the second paper of a series where we study the clustering of luminous red galaxies (LRG) in the recent spectroscopic Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) data release, DR6, which has 75000 LRG covering over 1Gpc3h-3 for 0.15 < z < 0.47. Here, we focus on modelling redshift-space distortions in ξ(σ, π), the two-point correlation in separate line...

Article
We apply a new model for the spherically averaged correlation function at large pair separations to the measurement of the clustering of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) made from the SDSS by Cabre and Gaztanaga(2009). Our model takes into account the form of the BAO peak and the large scale shape of the correlation function. We perform a Monte Carlo M...
Article
In a series of papers we have recently studied the clustering of LRG galaxies in the latest spectroscopic SDSS data release, which has 75000 LRG galaxies sampling 1.1 Gpc^3/h^3 to z=0.47. Here we focus on detecting a local maxima shaped as a circular ring in the bidimensional galaxy correlation function \xi(pi,sigma), separated in perpendicular \si...
Article
We study the clustering of LRG galaxies in the latest spectroscopic SDSS data releases, DR6 and DR7, which sample over 1 Gpc^3/h^3 to z=0.47. The 2-point correlation function $\xisp$ is estimated as a function of perpendicular $\sigma$ and line-of-sight $\pi$ (radial) directions. We find a significant detection of a peak at $r\simeq 110$Mpc/h, whic...

We present the 3-point function \xi_3 and Q_3=\xi_3/\xi_2^2 for a spectroscopic sample of luminous red galaxies (LRG) from SDSS DR6 & DR7. We find a strong (S/N$>$6) detection of $Q_3$ on scales of 55-125 Mpc/h, with a well defined peak around 105 Mpc/h in all \xi_2, \xi_3 and Q_3, in excellent agreement with the predicted shape and location of the...

We cross-correlate the third-year WMAP data with galaxy samples extracted from the SDSS DR5 (SDSS5) covering 16% of the sky. These measurements confirm a positive cross-correlation, which is well fitted by the integrated Sachs-Wolfe (ISW) effect for flat LCDM models with a cosmological constant.
Article
We cross-correlate the third-year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) data with galaxy samples extracted from the SDSS DR4 (SDSS4) covering 13 per cent of the sky, increasing the volume sampled in previous analysis by a factor of 3.7. The new measurements confirm a positive cross-correlation with higher significance (total signal-to-noise r...
