Data
Full-text available
Evidence of hurricane-induced mudflows and their characteristics near the West Delta, Gulf of Mexico
Research
Full-text available
Stationary underwater video surveys were conducted on rocky habitats near Loreto and coral habitat at Cabo Pulmo in the Gulf of California to obtain non-cryptic reef fish distribution and abundance data. Measurements of habitat variables were recorded to investigate the influence of habitat on fish distribution and abundance.Differences in fish ass...
Data
A video guide to common fishes found near Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Article
Full-text available
Coastal ecosystems provide numerous important ecological services, including maintenance of biodiversity and nursery grounds for many fish species of ecological and economic importance. However, human population growth has led to increased pollution, ocean warming, hypoxia, and habitat alteration that threaten ecosystem services. In this study, we...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Elkhorn Slough, a highly eutrophic estuary in central California, was assessed for hypoxia and its effects on two species of common flatfish found there. Available habitat for English sole (Parophrys vetulus) and speckled sanddabs (Citharichthys stigmaeus) during three different climatic regimes was determined using spatial analysis of twenty-three...
Chapter
High-resolution seafloor bathymetry and shallow sub-bottom profile data reveal a range of geomorphic expressions in the Cap de Creus canyon head and its adjacent continental shelf, which can be tied to processes of deposition and erosion. A complete suite of geophysical and acoustic data and large set of cores (piston, kasten and box cores) were ac...

Along the central California coast geologic and oceanographic forces place natural limits on the areal extent of tidal wetland habitat. Concurrently, human activities have led to the large-scale destruction of much of the regions tidal wetlands within estuaries. To delineate historical estuarine habitats and estuarine morphology for the purpose of...
Poster
Full-text available
The wreck of the U.S.S. Virginia off the coast of Louisiana was used as a strain marker to analyze the movement of mudflows during multiple catastrophic hurricane events between 2004 and 2009. Repeated geophysical surveys were conducted in the area using multibeam echosounders, sidescan sonar, subottom profilers, and gravity coring. Spatial analysi...

The goal of SeaSeep exploration is to rapidly and cost effectively evaluate an offshore area for hydrocarbon prospectivity. The tools that are used to do this, multibeam sonar and piston coring - in addition to the more traditional 2D seismic, gravity, magnetics, and heat flow - have been around for decades, yet it is only through recent advances i...
Article
During June 2007 and in relatively benign summer conditions, high-resolution multibeam (bathymetry and backscatter), sidescan sonar, and sub-bottom profiling datasets were acquired off the coast of Louisiana, west of Atchafalaya Bay, where the multi-year research program "Mechanism of Fluid-Mud Interactions Under Waves" (MURI) is focused. This surv...
Article
The Cap de Creus canyon head off the northeast coast of Spain is a key feature in understanding the recent processes affecting the Gulf of Lions. During July 2004 Fugro Survey Ltd. and AOA Geophysics Inc., with the assistance of Barcelona University mapped the canyon head. Data were acquired with a hull-mounted Kongsberg Simrad EM300 30 kHz system....
