Abstract The Chukchi Ecosystem Observatory (CEO), a mooring array of subsurface oceanographic instruments, was established on the northeast Chukchi Sea continental shelf to obtain time-series measurements of physical, biogeochemical, and biological parameters. A sequential sediment trap was deployed on a CEO mooring 8 m above seafloor to measure export fluxes of chlorophyll a (chl a), microalgal cells, zooplankton fecal pellets, total particulate matter (TPM), particulate organic carbon (POC), a...

Abstract Zooplankton growth rates ultimately shape the functional response of marine ecosystems to regional and global climate changes, because they determine the quantity and distribution of matter and energy within the zooplankton community available to higher trophic levels. Despite the variety of techniques available for measuring zooplankton growth, no or few approaches have been universally applied to the natural zooplankton populations or community and there are only a limited number of c...

Marine pelagic species are being increasingly challenged by environmental change. Their ability to persist will depend on their capacity for physiological acclimatization. Little is known about limits of physiological plasticity in key species at the base of the food web. Here we investigate the capacity for acclimatization in the copepod Neocalanus flemingeri, which inhabits the Gulf of Alaska, a heterogeneous and highly seasonal environment. RNA-Seq analysis of field-collected pre-adults ident...

Pelagic larval stages (meroplankton) of benthic invertebrates seasonally make up a significant proportion of planktonic communities, as well as determine the distribution of their benthic adult stages, yet are frequently overlooked by both plankton and benthic studies. Within the Arctic, the role of meroplanktonic larvae may be particularly important in regions of inflow from sub-Arctic regions, where they can serve as vectors of advection of temperate species into the Arctic. In this study, we ...

Abstract Synthesis of four decades of Gulf of Alaska ichthyoplankton data indicates that species diversity and total abundance peaks during spring, a common pattern in temperate and sub-arctic ocean regions due to synchrony with the spring peak in plankton production. Nevertheless, fish larvae occur in the plankton at all times of year and peak abundance periods vary significantly by species and habitat. Larval size at hatching and at transformation to the juvenile stage is also highly variable ...

Abstract The northern Gulf of Alaska (GOA) shelf is dynamic spatially and temporally. With two major current systems and numerous eddies and meanders, interpretation of field data from ship-based observations at specific times and locations is complicated. We used the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) with an embedded nutrient-phytoplankton-zooplankton (GOANPZ) model to aid in understanding spatial-temporal patterns of productivity, chlorophyll concentration and biomass over the GOA shelf be...

Abstract. Although Arctic marine ecosystems are changing rapidly, year-round monitoring is currently very limited and presents multiple challenges unique to this region. The Chukchi Ecosystem Observatory (CEO) described here uses new sensor technologies to meet needs for continuous, high-resolution, and year-round observations across all levels of the ecosystem in the biologically productive and seasonally ice-covered Chukchi Sea off the northwest coast of Alaska. This mooring array records a br...
