Microsatellites are regions (loci) within an organism's genome that display a high degree of variability and therefore can be used to identify population substructure. In some cases, PCR primers developed to identify and quantify microsatellite loci in one species can be used ...

An advanced general Ocean Turbulence Model (GOTM) was developed, which allows simulations of turbulence at the state of the art. It includes turbulence closures schemes of different complexity, up to so-called second order closure schemes. The model is available to the scient...

The response characteristics of microthermistors used in limnic and oceanographic applications was investigated. A new response function was developed, which describes the speed dependence of the response time correct. Application of the new response function improves the det...

We derived a new spatial response function for airfoil shear sensors. Airfoil shear sensors measure small-scale turbulence in the environment. This response function was obtained by comparing shear sensor output to laser-doppler anemometer (LDA) measurements. It allows correc...

[REPORT SUMMARY] Ecosystem models
The aim of the work was to develop a portable generic coupled hydrodynamic ecosystem model for european seas. The resulting system has been shown to be capable of simulation marine ecosystem response in a wide range of environments form the oligotrophic Aegean Sea to the mesot...

In view of the increased reliance on MPAs both as fisheries management and nature conservation tools, it seemed useful for managers as well as for scientists to gather the main methods available to study the effects of protection on a variety of ecological processes. For that ...

A microscale sensor for fluid velocity measurements has been developed and its properties investigated. The sensor can be made with tip diameters below 10 microns and the fluid velocity detection limit can be down to 5 microns/second. The sensor consists of a slim transducer (...

The exploitable result is a microscale sensor for perfusion. The spatial resolution can be in the order of a few tens of microns, depending on the sensor size and perfusion rate. The sensor has not yet been applied in physiological studies, but has shown promising performance ...

A flow velocity sensor is constructed according to the principle of a transducer surrounded by a concentric reservoir closed by a membrane, which is penetrated by the transducer. The reservoir contains a tracer that diffuses through the membrane and into the surrounding medium...

The exploitable result is a microscale sensor for apparent diffusivity. The spatial resolution depends on the grain size of the actual system; in soft sediments and biofilms it can be below 100 microns. Different versions differing with respect to used tracer gas have been dev...
