Deep-sea food chains and the global carbon cycle by Gilbert T Rowe( Book )

14 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carbon dioxide and other `greenhouse' gases are increasing in the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, the destruction of rain forests, etc., leading to predictions of a gradual global warming which will perturb the global biosphere. An important process which counters this trend toward potential climate change is the removal of carbon dioxide from the surface ocean by photosynthesis. This process packages carbon in phytoplankton which enter the food chain or sink into the deep sea. Their ultimate fate is a `rain' of organic debris out of the surface-mixed layer of the ocean. On a global scale, the mechanisms and overall rate of this process are poorly known. The authors of the 25 papers in this volume present their state-of-the-art approaches to quantifying the mechanisms by which the `rain' of biogenic debris nourishes deep ocean life. Prominent deep sea ecologists, geochemists and modelers address relationships between data and models of carbon fluxes and food chains in the deep ocean. An attempt is made to estimate the fate of carbon in the deep sea on a global scale by summing up the utilization of organic matter among all the populations of the abyssal biosphere. Comparisons are made between these ecological approaches and estimates of geochemical fluxes based on sediment trapping, one-dimensional geochemical models and horizontal (physical) input from continental margins. Planning interdisciplinary enterprises between geochemists and ecologists, including new field programs, are summarized in the final chapter. The summary includes a list of the important gaps in understanding which must be addressed before the role of the deep-sea biota in global-scale processes can be put in perspective
Deep-Sea Food Chains and the Global Carbon Cycle by Gilbert T Rowe( )

Benthic fauna of the Gulf of Maine sampled by R/V Gosnold Cruise 179 and DSRV Alvin Dives 329, 330, 331, and 404 : infaunal species list by Gilbert T Rowe( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bottom samples were collected in the Gulf of Maine during July, 1971 and June, 1972 using DSRV ALVIN and RV GOSNOLD. The techniques and results are embodied in a paper entitled "Quantitative Biological Assessment of the Benthic Fauna in the Deep Basins of the Gulf of Maine" by G.T. Rowe, P.T. Polloni and R.L. Haedrich. Many of the conclusions made in that paper were based on summaries of the abundance of each benthic species of living invertebrate animal in each kind of sample, but those original data would not be accepted by the journal (JOURNAL OF THE FISHERIES RESEARCH BOARD OF CANADA) because the table was too long. The purpose of this technical report is to put those raw data in a form available(on request from the authors)to any interested ecologists

The inverse tsunami problem of an island by Kuor-Jier Yip( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To date there exists no deep water record of a major tsunami from a benthic pressure gauge. Such deep water records and their spectra are desirable as a means of characterizing the tsunami source. The closest thing to such a record is that of the March 1957 event recorded by Van Dorn at Wake Island, a small volcanic atoll in the West Pacific nearly surrounded by a complex chain of sea mounts. While not of the same trapping capacity as the Hawaiian Island or continents, Wake Island and its neighboring sea mounts can produce quasi-resonant responses for periods near 3, 5, 6, 9 and 14 minutes. This effect sufficiently distorts the signals near shore, at the Van Dorn wave gauge and at a tide well within the lagoon, that they are quite different from that in the deep water. An inverse method is discussed by which the deep water signal can be estimated by one gauge and checked by the other. This inverse method is employed to determine an estimate of the deep sea tsunami signal from the Van Dorn gauge. Unfortunately the independent check using the tide gauge was not possible because of the lack of reliable information on its dynamic response characteristics at periods in the spectral band for the tsunami event

Nutritional components of forage-based food systems and their contribution to growth of juvenile crawfish (Procambarus clarkii) by William Ray McClain( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial crawfish aquaculture in the United States presently depends primarily on a forage-based food system, with rice (Oryza sativa) being the major forage. More precise nutritional information about this forage-based system should facilitate its management for crawfish production. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine the nutrient composition of rice during decomposition, to determine the gross trends in biomass of associated microorganisms and their effect on crawfish growth, and to estimate the contribution of separable fractions of available food resources to crawfish growth. A three-part approach was undertaken to address these objectives. In part one, preboot rice (variety Mars) underwent aerobic decomposition at 22.5[plus or minus]1.5°C with pond water and soil for various intervals of time. Nutrient profiles (ash, crude protein, crude lipid, cell-wall content and C:N ratio) of rice and its products of decomposition varied according to plant portion and decomposition time. In general, decomposition decreased crude lipid content and C:N ratio while ash, cell-wall and protein contents increased over time. The second part of the research consisted of a series of feeding experiments in a flow-through tank system to assess the contribution of single feedstuffs to growth of juvenile crawfish (Procambarus clarkii) housed individually. The ability of juvenile crawfish to use plant components for growth was limited, compared with their ability to use a prepared feed (Dupont's Crawdeaux[TM]); and, their ability to use detritus varied directly with the total biomass of associated microbes. The last part of the research focused on crawfish growth in static-water microcosms with and without various components of the detrital food chain and the prepared feed. The growth data were used to fit a multiple linear model with zero intercept to estimate contribution to growth from separable components of the treatments. These were--in order of importance--prepared feed, microbially-enriched detrital forage, soil benthos, soil substrate and possibly meiofauna and larger organisms associated with detritus
