Assessing the impact of seasonal variations on the density structure of a weak freshwater plume
(University of Plymouth, 2014)
Freshwater plumes are features of periodically intense salinity stratification created by an ebbing tide. The dynamics of these features are important for biological events, such as the spring bloom. Using an undulating ...
Labrador Sea Water formation in the Irminger Basin and its dependence on the North Atlantic Oscillation
(University of Plymouth, 2009)
Historical temperature and salinity data from the Irminger basin were analysed to determine if Labrador Sea Water forms in the Irminger Basin and if deep convection in the region is dependent on the North Atlantic Oscillation. ...
Effects of UV radiation and salinity on the intertidal macroalgae Palmaria palmata and Ulva lactuca: effects on photosynthetic performance, growth and pigments
(University of Plymouth, 2012)
The tolerance of Palmaria palmata and Ulva lactuca from two positions (upper and lower) of the shoreline to low salinity and Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) was assessed using chlorophyll fluorescence, relative growth rates, ...
