A Coastal Pond Studied by Oceanographic Methods.
Epilogue: Oyster Pond -- Three Decades of Change

Emery, K.O., B.L. Howes, and S.R. Hart
111 pp., 1997, $19.00 (includes shipping) WHOI-B-97-001
Originally printed in 1969, this book is a history and careful study of Oyster Pond, a coastal pond in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Emery traces the history of the pond from pre-European and early settler days to the middle of this century and provides a description of the pond's topography, geology, and biology. Since 1987, Oyster Pond has been part of the Falmouth Pond Watchers Program, a cooperative research project conducted with funds from the Town of Falmouth and the WHOI Sea Grant Program. Samples taken from the pond by citizen volunteers have been used to update Emery's study and to document the changes that have taken place in the pond over the past three decades. In the epilogue, Brian Howes and Stanley Hart, WHOI, summarize these recent findings and outline the first stages of a corrective management plan.

Backus, R.H. and D.W. Bourne
593 pp., 1987, $225.00 WHOI-B-87-001
This book is a result of a project undertaken by the Coastal Research Center at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the late 1970s and early 1980s to determine why Georges Bank is so productive. It looks at all aspects of the natural science of the bank, describes its rich resources, and considers the public policy questions surrounding the exploitation of these resources. This book is of interest not only to oceanographers and social scientists interested in the ocean, but also students, legislators, fishermen, resource managers, engineers, lawyers--indeed anyone interested in Georges Bank.

Replication in Controlled Marine Systems: Presenting the Evidence
Smith, W., V.R. Gibson, and J.F. Grassle
In: Grice, G.D. and M.R. Reeve (eds.), Marine Mesocosms, pp. 217-225, 1982 WHOI-R-82-001
The basic reason for replicating experiments is to answer the question: If a competent experimenter were to reconstruct this experiment with approximately the same experimental manipulation and environmental conditions, what range of results would he observe? Attempting to answer this question for large-scale experiments introduces two problems not encountered in small-scale laboratory experiments:

1) Replicate experiments are performed under different environmental conditions, and
2) the cost and size of an experiment make large numbers of replicate experiments impractical.

This paper discusses these two problems in general and then considers the evidence for replicability in two large-scale marine experiments: the MERL No. 2 fuel oil experiments at the Marine Ecosystems Research Laboratory, Narragansett, R.I., and the CEPEX mercury pollution experiments (Controlled Environmental Pollution Experiment), Saanich Inlet, British Columbia.

Relating Oceanography to Antillean Archaeology: Implications from Oceania
Watters, D.R.
Journal of New World Archaeology, Vol. 5, No. 2, 9 pp., 1982 WHOI-R-82-024
The purpose of this paper is to bring to the attention of Caribbean archaeologists some pertinent studies concerning maritime adaptations and ocean processes in Oceania, a region where research linking oceanography and prehistoric archaeology is further advanced. This paper briefly reviews prior maritime-related work in the Antilles, demonstrates the applicability of Oceanic studies to the Caribbean, provides a credible theoretical framework, and addresses the need for re-evaluating previously gathered data. The paper also builds upon links between the disciplines, ocean processes affecting the archaeological record, reasons for the pervasive terrestrial bias, and the aspects of maritime adaptations that Antillean archaeologists currently are neglecting. This discussion more directly pertains to the insular part of Caribbean America, especially to the smaller islands of the Lesser Antilles and Bahamas, than to fronting continental landmasses in South and Central America.
