Herring tagging in the vicinity of the Scotian Shelf and Gulf of St. Lawrence by the Maritimes Region, 1973-1982 by Wayne T Stobo( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1973 and 1982 over 341,000 herring were tagged throughout the Bay of Fundy, Scotian Shelf, and southern Gulf of St Lawrence to examine stock structure and movements. Every major herring fishery in these areas was a subject of this decade-long tagging program, which attempted to distinguish the various known and suspected spawning components perceived at the time. Much of the data has never been examined, and for some areas, previous examinations utilized only early tag recoveries. This examination suggests that current understandings of stock identities and migration patterns might warrant reconsideration or modification. This is especially true for juvenile herring stock components, but also for a number of adult components."--Document
Intercomparison of current measurements from the Georges Bank Frontal Study by John W Loder( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From June-October 1988 and July 1989, a field study was conducted of currents and mixing at a tidal front on Georges Bank. As part of this study, current measurements were obtained from moored instruments at 6 sites and from a ship-mounted (Ametek Straza) acoustic Doppler current profiler (ACDP) operated nearly continuously during two principal survey periods. The moored instruments were Aanderaa (paddle-wheel version) current meters deployed at 3-5 depths at each site, a bottom-mounted (RD instruments) ACDP deployed at one of the sites, and two InterOcean S4 electromagnetic current meters deployed on one of the RCM moorings. The Ametek measurements included current profiles in the vicinity of the mooring sites while the research vessel was at anchor obtaining repeated turbulence profiles. This report presents the results of an intercomparison of currents measured with the different types of instrumentation

Satellite-tracked surface drifter program : Scotian shelf 2007 and the Gulf of St. Lawrence 2008-2009 by Augustine Van der Baaren( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of a surface current study, satellite-tracked surface drifters were deployed in eastern Canadian waters to collect surface current data. The purpose of the study is to use drifter data to calibrate and validate surface trajectories calculated from an ocean forecast model, Canadian East Coast Ocean Model, CECOM. Two validation trials were conducted. Satellite-tracked surface drifters manufactured by MetOcean Data Systems Limited and Seimac Limited were deployed in the fall of 2007 and 2008 to collect the data. A total of 13 drifters were released from ships on the Scotian Shelf in 2007, and 23 in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 2008. In this report, the methods of data processing, error editing and calculation of surface velocities are described, as well as multiple maps describing the deployment sites and series positions.--Document
Monthly means of temperature, salinity and sigma-t for the Gulf of St. Lawrence by B Petrie( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Report on the monthly means and standard deviations of temperature and salinity data collected in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Statistics of sigma-t, derived from the data, are compiled as well. The Gulf was divided into 17 areas extending from the Estuary to the Strait of Belle Isle and to Cabot Strait. The means and standard deviations were calculated at standard depths from archived bottle and CTD data collected between 1915 and 1987. The data are presented in tables for all areas and as time series plots at selected depths for several areas. In addition, where sufficient data were available, the annual and semi-annual components were computed using harmonic analysis
Short-term physical, chemical and biological variability on the Scotian Shelf by Blair J. W Greenan( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daily to weekly timescale variability on the Scotian Shelf is studied using a combination of historical data sets and new field data collected in the Fall of 2000. The intent of this study is to improve the understanding of the relationship between the physical forcing mechanisms and the response of the chemical and biological fields on these short time scales. In section 2, data from 2 previous field experiments are analysed in the context of the current study. In Section 3, SeaWiFS satellite ocean colour for the period 1997-2000 are used to describe spatial correlation of chlorophyll biomass on the Scotian Shelf. The results of a deployment of 2 moorings at Station 2 on the Halifax Section are given in section 4. A summary of these various data sets is provided in Section 5
Moored current meter and CTD observations from Barrow Strait : 2003-2004 by James M Hamilton( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports on the measurements of ten instrumented moorings deployed in the eastern end of Barrow Strait from August 2003 to August 2004. The moorings provide yearlong records of current, temperature, salinity, and ice drift and thickness, extending a data time series started in August of 1998.--Includes text from document
Seabed shear stress estimates at the Cohasset and Hibernia oil production sites by Carl Anderson( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report assembles results of stress computations used to estimate seabed shear stress at two oil production sites on the eastern Canadian continental shelf: Cohasset on Sable Island Bank, and Hibernia on the Grand Banks. In both cases, computations were made using the one-dimensional sediment transport model SEDTRANS96 (Li and Amos, 1997). Inputs to the model were near-seabed current measurements and surface wave observations in 1993 and 1995-6 (Cohasset) and 1998-2000 (Hibernia). Surficial sediment grain size & density were assigned realistic site-specific values. Results are reported as time series of stress velocity and volumetric rate of sediment transport. Statistics & histograms of the input & output variables are also presented. A sensitivity analysis was also performed to examine the dependence of seabed shear stress on current, wave height, and surficial sediment grain size
An echosounder system ground-truthed by towfish data : a method to map larger nearshore areas by Herbert Vandermeulen( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The specifications and design of an echosounder system are described for shallow water use. A BioSonics, Inc. DT-X digital echosounder with 210 and 430 kHz single beam transducers was custom fitted to a 22' research vessel with a unique transducer cage. The echosounder system can be run at 4 knots, offering rapid coverage of large areas of the bottom. Towfish transects (video and sidescan) are used to ground-truth the echosounder data, creating benthic habitat classes and maps. All positional data is collected at dGPS specifications (sub-meter precision)
Mapping the nearshore using a unique towfish by Herbert Vandermeulen( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The specifications and design of a towfish system are described for shallow water use. The towfish contains a color video camera, high frequency sidescan and positioning transponder. The towfish offers rapid 'transect' views of the bottom useful for describing habitat classes. The towfish is unique in that the video acts as a ground truth for the sidescan imagery in real time. The transponder on the towfish interacts with a transceiver mounted to the vessel hull to produce positional data to dGPS specifications (sub-meter precision). All video is georeferenced and stored as digital video clips in MapInfo GIS projects which also include towfish tracks and high frequency sidescan images (330 kHz, 30 m swath). The GIS projects can be used to generate habitat maps
Ocean sciences data rescue by Anthony Isenor( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Water sample data consisting of thermometer temperature, salinity, oxygen and nutrients and supporting metadata have been digitised from historic records and placed in a local biological and chemical oceanographic database. The digitised data were quality controlled by plotting and visually comparing values within a parameter type and dataset. A transfer format was developed between the digitising environment and the target database. In total, 27 datasets representing over 1200 profiles were digitised and transferred to the database. These data did not previously exist in a form accessible by researchers

Analyzing for climatological information in the long term temperature monitoring program sea temperature time series by R.H. Loucks Oceanology Limited( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The long-term temperature monitoring program has produced nearshore temperature time series from a variety of sites in Atlantic Canada since 1967. In this study, these data were re-edited and summarized in time and space to monthly averages over 35 unit areas corresponding to inshore fishing zones from northern Newfoundland through the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Bay of Fundy, each separated into shallow (depth less than 12m) and deep (dept more than 12m) ranges. The time series of monthly temperatures were then used to derive monthly mean temperatures, variance and anomalies; to determine the correspondence with sea-surface temperature climatology for patterns of variance; and for spatial scales of correlation

Review of oil spill trajectory modelling in the presence of ice( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report addresses marine oil spill trajectory modelling with a focus on the Arctic environment. The primary goals are a synthesis of the state-of-knowledge on oil spill trajectory modelling and the identification of the key gaps in this knowledge as it applies to the Canadian Arctic. The review addresses all the components of a comprehensive oil spill trajectory model including 1) a blowout plume model to determine the distribution of oil in the water column for spills that occur at depth, 2) models for the physical environmental forcing (wind, air temperature, precipitation, ocean currents, sea ice and waves); and 3) an oil fate-and-effects model to address weathering, evaporation, ice-oil interactions, and other details of the oil's interplay with the environment. Novel challenges presented by the Arctic environment include the presence of sea ice, sparse observations of ocean currents and limited ability to monitor the spill's evolution."--Document
