    Description / Table of Contents: This report is organized in four parts. Chapter 1 provides an introduction. Chapter 2 assesses the state of the Arctic coast under three broad disciplinary themes - physical, ecological, and human systems. Chapter 3 considers the need for and progress toward integrative approaches to monitoring, understanding, and managing change in Arctic coastal systems. Chapter 4 provides a synthesis and identifies data gaps and research priorities over the coming decade.

    Description: Experimentalists, data analysts, and theoreticians were brought together to study and interpret the results of four solstice campaigns conducted prior to the symposium. Emphasis was placed on campaigns III and V. Topics discussed included: review of the data and evaluation of the consistency with available theoretical models; interpretation of the data; recommendations on how the Atmospheric Tides Middle Atmosphere Program (ATMAP) results should reach the open literature such that the advancement of middle atmosphere science and the proprietary rights of the individual experimenters are best served; and recommendations concerning future campaigns and the future emphasis of ATMAP.

    Notes: [Auszug] Most birds hatch their broods asynchronously, which leads to reduced growth and higher mortality of last-hatched nestlings. Why parent birds confer handicaps on some of their progeny, and advantages on others, remains controversial, although a consensus is emerging that there is no single ...

    Notes: Abstract A fully mature tropical cyclone is a complicated phenomenon, in which effects such as boundary-layer friction, latent heat release, and so on, must be accounted for, in order to give a complete description of the flow. Nevertheless, it is demonstrated here that a two-layer compressible atmosphere model, with a sharp interface separating the layers, is capable of giving a non-linear vortex-type solution at the lowest order of approximation. The ‘eye’ of the cyclone is formed when the interface is drawn down to sea level. Heat energy from the ocean into the cyclone and secondary flow within the vortex are both incorporated. The model provides an approximate description of cyclone behaviour, in terms that are easily understood. More complete descriptions are apparently only possible numerically, however, with a corresponding loss of ease of comprehension.

    Notes: Abstract Polychaetes belonging to the genus Capitella are often present in high numbers in organic-rich sediments polluted with, e.g., oil components, and Capitella spp. may have a great impact on the biogeochemistry of these sediments. We examined the influence of Capitella sp. I on microbial activity in an organic-rich marine sediment contaminated with the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, fluoranthene. Capitella sp. I were added to microcosms (10 000 ind m−2) and the impact of a pulse-sedimentation of fluoranthene-contaminated sediment (3 mm layer) was studied for a period of 12 d after sedimentation. The sediment oxygen uptake and total sediment metabolism (TCO2 production) increased in cores with worms (71 to 131%), whereas the anaerobic activity, measured as sulfate reduction rate 12 d after sedimentation, was lower compared to cores without worms. The effect of fluoranthene on sulfate reduction was most pronounced in the presence of worms, with a 34% reduction versus 16% in cores without worms. The reduced sulfur pools in cores with worms were smaller than in cores without worms, suggesting that the reduced anaerobic activity was caused by increased oxidation of the sediment, which may favor O2 and other electron-acceptors (e.g. NO3 −, Fe3+, Mn4+) in organic matter decomposition. The sediment oxygen uptake and TCO2 production did not show significant changes due to fluoranthene treatment, indicating that these parameters were either less sensitive to fluoranthene stress or recovered more rapidly (i.e. within 48 h) than sulfate reduction rates. Bioturbation by Capitella sp. I altered the depth profile of fluoranthene such that fluoranthene was found in deeper sediment layers (down to 2 cm) where diffusional loss and microbial breakdown probably are reduced relative to surface layers. In cores without worms, fluoranthene was found down to 1 cm, with 75% remaining in the upper 5 mm.
