Description

The objective of this project is to study climate change and the possible effects of such change on marine resources in eastern boundary current systems. Research includes separating local from global variability in both oceanic and biological time series, looking for evidence of regime changes, and determining the socio-economic impact resulting from climate change. Emphasis is placed on comparing across ecologically similar eastern boundary current systems to gain greater “degrees of freedom”. We welcome statistical studies in developing methods for nonstationary spectral estimation, change-point problems in time series, nonlinear and nongaussian state-space models, factor estimation in state-space models, and hidden Markov changes. Easy access to worldwide surface and subsurface oceanographic data is also available, as well as extensive fisheries data bases from the various eastern boundary current regions.
