  • Year: 2017 Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology

    PICES Working Group 31 on Emerging Topics in Marine Pollution published 15 papers and an introduction as a special issue of Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (Volume 73, Issue 2, pp. 171-347; Guest Editors: Tanya M. Brown and Hideshige Takada) in August 2017. The special issue is titled Indicators of Ocean Pollution in the North Pacific Ocean and is based on a selection of papers from a scientific session on indicators of emerging pollution issues in the North Pacific Ocean held at PICES-2015 in Qingdao, China. Indicators here are defined as entities that help to monitor pollution status and/or to evaluate their biological impacts. The special issue exemplifies how a variety of indicators can provide insight into the identification of legacy and emerging contaminants, the ranking of priority pollutants from various sources, and the impacts of contaminants on ecosystem health in the North Pacific. This issue provides the first compilation of research on marine pollution indicators in the North Pacific Ocean and provides guidance to inform mitigation and monitoring of contaminants in the region. These indicators may facilitate the tracking of environmental response to regulations and source control.

  • Year: 2015 Progress in Oceanography

    This PICES special issue of Progress in Oceanography is dedicated to Dr. Bernard (Bern) Megrey, who was lost from PICES and his family far too early. Bern achieved many scientific accomplishments during his career in fisheries and oceanography and served PICES in many different roles, sometimes simultaneously. Bern is the only recipient of both of the major PICES awards–the PICES Ocean Monitoring Service Award (POMA) and the Wooster Award that recognizes individuals for significant scientific contributions to North Pacific marine science. The sixteen papers in this issue Combining Modeling and Observations to Better Understand Marine Ecosystem Dynamics (Guest Editors: E.Curchitser, K.Rose, S.Ito, M.Peck and M.Kishi) display some of the breadth of models in use for understanding the mechanisms linking environmental forcing to biological responses in ocean systems–it is a collection that Bern would be proud of.
