    Georges Bank provides a basic and indispensable reference tool for anyone involved in studying the bank or in making decisions about its use. Until now debates about alternative uses of the bank have been hampered by the fact that much of the basic research has been available only to specialists and has been scattered among many publications. The Georges Bank monitoring program analysis of trace metals in bottom sediments during the third year of monitoring / By Michael H. Bothner and United States. Minerals Management Service.

    In , a voluntary industry monitoring program to discourage the presence of small meats in the catch (50+ meats per g) was implemented. A low tolerance level (10% by number of meats 10 g or less) added more restriction to the regulatory 33 meats per g. The overall TAC for Georges Bank zones ‘a’ and ‘b’ reached 3, tonnes for. The Georges Bank was named by English colonists in (Amaral ), but was already Basques first discovered Georges Bank around AD, and tried to keep the bountiful fishery a secret, but it wasn’t long before Basque fishing fleets were spotted anchored above the Georges Bank (AMNH ).News traveled fast, and soon the worldwide fleets were exploiting the .

A Review of Observer and Monitoring Programs in the Northeast, the West Coast, and Alaska. Georges Bank (formerly known as St. Georges Bank) is a large elevated area of the sea floor between Cape Cod, Massachusetts (United States), and Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia (Canada). It separates the Gulf of Maine from the Atlantic Ocean.. The origin of its name is obscure. The Velasco map, prepared for King James I of England, used the name "S. Georges Banck", a common practice when.

Of the 12 elements analyzed in bulk (undifferentiated) sediments collected adjacent to drilling rigs on Georges Bank, only barium was found to increase in concentration during the drilling period (July until September ).

The maximum postdrilling concentration of barium (a major element in drilling mud) reached ppm in bulk sediments near the drill site in block From Julywhen drilling began on Georges Bank, to Maythe concentration of barium, a major element in drilling mud, has increased by a factor of in bulk sediments m from the drill site in block and by a factor of at the drill site in block The postdrilling barium concentrations are within the range of predriiling concentrations measured at other locations on.

Concerns about the potential effects of oil and gas exploration on Georges Bank off the coast of Massachusetts led to the initiation of an intensive monitoring program in July, Sponsored by the Minerals Management Service of the Department of the Interior, the program includes benthic community analysis, as well as determination of the trace metal and hydrocarbon levels in sediments Cited by: 2.

We estimated the effective sample sizes for mean length distributions of six groundfish species from Georges Bank using data collected by a Study Fleet Program implemented by the School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST) at the University of Massachusetts–Dartmouth.

Both statistical and simulation methods were by: 3. In situ current, temperature and conductivity monitoring techniques are described which have been designed to provide long-term data collection at three mooring sites in the harsh ocean environment of Georges Bank.

The combination semitaut and slack instrument moorings are reviewed, which permit current measurements from the ocean bottom to surface.

Forrester’s Hornblower series, Joseph Conrad’s Typhoon /5(5).A series of oceanographic surveys on Georges Bank document variability of populations of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense on time scales ranging from synoptic to seasonal to interannual.

Blooms of A. fundyense on Georges Bank can reach concentrations on the order of 10 4 cells l −1, and are generally bank-wide in s Bank populations of A. fundyense appear to be Cited by: During the last decade and a half many studies have been conducted in the United States to examine the impact of petroleum operations on the marine environment.
