    Todarodes sagittatus (N=1131) were opportunistically sampled from commercial and research trawling in Irish and Scottish waters between 1993 and 1998. The results suggest that the species is common in deep waters (>200 m) to the west of Ireland and Scotland, particularly in late summer and autumn. The size of squid caught was related to depth, with larger squid caught deeper, and is indicative of an ontogenetic, bathymetric migration. Females were more common (sex ratio 1·00:0·46), and attained a larger maximum size (520 mm mantle length (ML)) than males (426 mm ML). Mature females (360–520 mm ML) were caught in deep water (>500 m), between March and November, with a large catch of mature females taken off the west coast of Ireland in August 1996. Mature males (300–426 mm) were found from August to November. Potential fecundity was estimated to range from 205,000–523,500 eggs female−1. Putative daily increments in statoliths indicated a life cycle of slightly over a year, with rapid growth of approximately 1·8 mm d−1 during subadult and adult life. Fish were the most important prey of T. sagittatus and 17 fish prey taxa were identified, of which pelagic species were the most important.

    In deep-sea fans, fan lobes form from the stacking of the deposits of turbidity currents and other sediment gravity flows beyond the channel mouth. Slopes lateral or oblique to the main direction of turbidity currents exiting channel confinement can profoundly affect flow behavior and the distribution of facies and lithology in fan lobes. In this paper, we report on the analysis of multibeam and CHIRP subbottom data aimed at the study of the effects of a lateral slope on turbidity-current behavior and resultant geomorphology and stratigraphy of a modern fan lobe. The Villafranca fan lobe, the subject of this study, develops on the 0.5 degrees dipping seafloor of the Gioia intraslope basin in the southeastern Tyrrhenian Sea. The Villafranca is a transient fan lobe that has its downslope limit coinciding with a 200-m-high bathymetric step formed by the erosional flank of the Stromboli slope valley, perpendicular to the fan-lobe trend. A "lobe complex'' hierarchical level is assigned to the Villafranca fan lobe. The lobe complex develops beyond the mouth of the Villafranca leveed channel, which trends N and is oblique to the regional NW-dipping slope. The depositional topography created by an adjacent channel levee wedge to the west is the cause of the observed obliquity. The western and the eastern "lobes'' constitute the Villafranca lobe complex. Both lobes have mainly NW-trending channels, and therefore they do not conform to the classical divergent pattern of channels observed in deep-sea fan lobes. The channel trend is a result of the inability of flows to freely spread sideways, due to the presence of the lateral slope and the dip of the seafloor at the channel mouth. The western lobe has an up-dip apex with respect to the eastern one and is characterized by channels that nucleate on the downslope side of a channel-mouth bar and that die out distally before reaching the flank of the Stromboli slope valley. The eastern lobe, in contrast, has channels that are depositional upslope but on approaching the flank of Stromboli slope valley become mainly erosional or bypass features. The two lobes develop concomitantly, therefore an evolution due to compensational stacking with the two lobes being in different stages of development is here disregarded. It is therefore feasible that turbidity currents, which due to different initiating mechanisms have distinct magnitude and efficiency, deposit their load either in the eastern or in the western lobe. Another possibility is that single turbidity currents exiting the Villafranca channel mouth form two separate flow portions with different properties, which independently but simultaneously feed the eastern and the western lobe. In both cases, the effect of the lateral slope and the obliquity between the dip of the slope and the trend of the channel mouth are here considered as the primary factors controlling the differences in depositional style of the two lobes.

    Abstract The Yap subduction zone in the western Pacific presents some unique features compared to normal intra-oceanic subduction zones such as the subduction of an oceanic plateau. However, due to the relative paucity of geophysical data, the detailed structure remains unknown in this area. In this study, we present the latest high-quality swath bathymetry and multi-channel seismic data acquired synchronously in 2015 across the Yap subduction zone. The topographic and sedimentary features are intensively investigated and a modified evolutionary model of the Yap subduction zone is proposed. The two-stage evolution of the Parece Vela Basin (PVB) produced fabrics that are N-S trending and NW-SE trending. Our seismic data clearly reveal landslide deposits at the upper slope break of the forearc, to the north of the Yap Island, which was identified as the fault notch denoting a lithological boundary in previous work. The swath bathymetry and seismic profile reveal detailed horst and graben structures, including a crescent-shaped fault zone near the contact between the Yap Trench and the Caroline Ridge. A simple geometric model is proposed to explain the structure formation, indicating that the higher topography of the Caroline Ridge resulted in enhanced bending-related extension. A seismic angular unconformity (named R1) is identified in the Sorol Trough, marking the onset of rifting in the trough. Based on the sequence thickness and deposition rate by Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), it is deduced that the Sorol Trough formed at 10 Ma or even earlier. A modified model for the Yap subduction zone evolution is proposed, incorporating three major tectonic events: the proto-Yap Arc rupture in the Oligocene, the collision of the Caroline Ridge and the Yap Trench in the late Oligocene or middle Miocene, and the onset of the Sorol Trough rifting in the late Miocene.

    Abstract Biological information for Eledone cirrhosa has been reassessed through two series of trawls in the framework of the Research Projects MEDITS (summer) and GRUND (autumn) over a 10-year period of surveys in the Ligurian Sea. This information covers aspects such as life span and growth and mortality rates. The sum of samples obtained in the two different seasons allowed the analysis of consistent length frequency distributions and resulted in distinguishing recruits/juveniles from adults of two different ages, i.e. E. cirrhosa is a relatively long living cephalopod, whose reproduction occurs in the second or third year of life. By sampling in different bathymetric strata, different densities on shelf and slope fishing grounds were measured and their displacements with changing season were monitored. The most important stratum in terms of summer densities was in the range 100–200 m depth, which includes the shelf edge, at 150 m. In a relatively narrow strip of seabed, covered by the shelf-edge detritic assemblage and adjacent muddy bottom assemblage VTC (80–150 m), the recruitment of E. cirrhosa occurs from January onwards, while till recent times a specific trawling targeting juveniles used to be carried out in late spring and summer months. In autumn E . cirrhosa is mainly concentrated in shallower waters where trawling activity does not specifically target this species. Trends in numbers and biomass derived by the two series of surveys, and in particular those during autumn series have revealed a significant decrease over the studied time interval. Therefore, the possible relationship between large-scale environmental factors and/or exploitation, was investigated and a positive relationship between summer biomass and winter NAO index was found, even if the cause of such relationship remains unexplained. However, trends of E. cirrhosa landings reported in other studies of the north-western Mediterranean resulted in a similar relationship, thus reinforcing the hypothesis of climatic factors influencing the success of the fishery of this biological resource. A tentative stock assessment, based on relative yield-per-recruit functions, taking into account the two different lengths at first capture and corresponding to mesh sizes of 20 or 40 mm (juveniles and adults nets), showed overexploitation and underexploitation, respectively. A preliminary study of density indices by vital phase also demonstrated a correlation between summer spawners and autumn juveniles of the following year, thus providing evidence of a stock–recruitment relationship.

    Authors: Baeye, M.; Fettweis, M.;

    Suspended particulate matter (SPM) plumes associated with the monopile foundations of the Belgian offshore wind farm (OWF) Belwind I were acoustically profiled by means of a Doppler current profiler (ADCP). Together with the analysis of a bottom lander dataset of optical and acoustic backscatter sensors (OBSs and ADPs respectively), the spatiotemporal SPM plume dynamics were inferred. The fieldwork comprised (1) near-bed measurements of hydrodynamics and SPM concentrations in the direct vicinity of the wind turbines, by means of a bottom lander over a spring–neap cycle in May 2010; this dataset represents a typically tide-driven situation because there was no significant meteorological forcing during the measurement period; (2) additional vessel-based measurements conducted in May 2013 to capture the SPM plumes inside and outside the OWF over part of a tidal cycle. Both in situ datasets revealed that the SPM plumes were generated at the turbine piles, consistent with aerial and space-borne imagery. The SPM plumes are well aligned with the tidal current direction in the wake of the monopiles, concentrations being estimated to reach up to 5 times that of the background concentration of about 3 mg/l. It is suggested that the epifaunal communities colonizing the monopile surface and the protective rock collar at the base play a key role as source of the suspended matter recorded in the plumes. The organisms filter and trap fine SPM from the water column, resulting in predominant accumulation of SPM, including detritus and (pseudo-) faeces, at the base of the piles. When tidal currents exceed a certain velocity, fine particles in the near-bed fluff layer are re-suspended and transported downstream in the wake of the piles.

    Authors: Schäppi, Bettina; Perona, Paolo; Schneider, Philipp; Burlando, Paolo;

    An important element in hydraulic modelling is the topography data of the riverbed and the floodplain area. The latter can be obtained directly from digital terrain models (DTM), but the measurement of the riverbed topography is not straightforward. Since in the aerial survey only the elevation of the water surface is recorded, information about the riverbed topography cannot be obtained from the DTM. Therefore a method for the integration of river topography data in a DTM was developed. While the DTM contains in most cases regularly spaced data points, the resolution of the cross section profiles is generally much higher in the lateral than in the longitudinal direction of the river. An algorithm was developed which combines lateral river profiles with a DTM to produce a grid that can be used for flow modelling. The cross section data are interpolated to the grid points of the DTM that are part of the channel by using a bilinear technique with bounding breaklines, which can be obtained from the river cross section profiles. Additionally the algorithm can be adapted so that only the submerged part of the riverbed is subject to interpolation. It preserves the original DTM in the exposed part of the gravel bars. The algorithm was applied to a restored reach of the river Thur in Switzerland. The corrected grid represents well the complex morphological features of the river such as gravel bars and widenings. The accuracy of the algorithm was tested by comparing the interpolated elevation of the exposed part of the gravel bar to measurements obtained from an aerial survey. The mean height difference is in the order of about 9. cm. Further the interpolated grid was used for a two dimensional flow simulation and the resulting water level was compared to the one recorded in the original DTM. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

    The Gulf of Cádiz (GoC) represents an area of socioeconomic and scientific importance for oceanographic, geological and biological processes. An interesting feature of the GoC is the presence of a large amount of mud volcanoes (MVs) and diapirs that display different seepage, seabed types, oceanographic settings and biological communities. Detailed exploration of some MVs is still needed for detecting Vulnerable Marine ecosystems (VMEs) that seem to be rare in other areas of the GoC, improving the current knowledge on its biodiversity and ecological attributes. During different expeditions (MEDWAVES-ATLAS, INDEMARES-CHICA 0610 & 0412 and ISUNEPCA 0616) carried out in different years, biological samples and videos were obtained in Gazul MV (Spanish Margin of the GoC). The study of those samples and videos has revealed the presence of several ecologically important VMEs (e.g. 3 species of reef framework-forming corals, coral gardens including solitary scleractinians, gorgonians and antipatharians, as well as deep-sea sponge aggregations and chemosynthesis-related structures) and a large number of species occurring in this MV, including new records for the European margin, threatened species and non-previously described species. The combination of different environmental and anthropogenic factors allowed the present-day persistence of these VMEs in the GoC. Some of Gazul MV biological and ecological attributes fit several criteria of the Convention on Biological Diversity for EBSA description (e.g. 1,3,4,6) that, together with those of other areas of the GoC, may contribute to the future potential nomination of an EBSA in this area of the NE Atlantic.

    Abstract Tides and tidal currents in Titan’s hydrocarbon seas are numerically simulated by a 3-dimensional ocean circulation model using a bathymetry map constrained by Cassini. These predictions are used to calculate the tidally induced variations of the oceanic angular momentum of the seas. The tides behave as a quasi-standing wave with anti-nodes at the northern and southern shores. The tidal currents in Kraken Mare are mainly oriented along the major axis of the sea and are dominated by fast hydraulic currents through a narrow strait. The axial oceanic angular momentum primarily changes due to redistribution of liquids in Kraken Mare and maximizes when there is ebb at the northern shore and flood at the southern shore. On the other hand, variations of the equatorial oceanic angular momentum are contributed by both tides and tidal currents. The oceanic torque between sea and sea bottom is minor compared to its atmospheric counterpart, i.e. the mountain torque between atmosphere and mountains.

    AbstractLake Tana's flow system is governed by four main components: the inflow from surrounding river catchments into the lake, the outflow at Bahir Dar through the Blue Nile, the direct rainfall on the lake and the direct evaporation from the lake. While recent studies applied simple pragmatic approaches to estimate runoff from ungauged catchments, here emphasis is placed on more advanced approaches based on regionalization and spatial proximity principles. In the regionalization approach, model parameters of the conceptual HBV (Hydrologiska Byråns Vattenbalansavdelning) rainfall‐runoff modelling of gauged catchments are transferred to ungauged catchments to allow runoff simulation. Parameter transfer was attempted through regression, proximity procedures and catchment size. This yielded 42, 47 and 46%, respectively, of the total river inflow for the three procedures. Lake areal rainfall is estimated by interpolation of the rain gauges around the lake, open water evaporation is estimated by the Penman‐combination equation while observed inflows and outflow data are directly used in the lake water balance. The water balance closure term was established by comparing the measured lake levels with the calculated levels. Results show that runoff from ungauged catchments is around 880 mm per year for the simulation period 1995–2001 with a water balance closure error of 5%. In addition, use is made of river and lake water chemistry to arrive at an estimate of the unknown inflow and outflow components through the mixing cell approach. The results obtained with this method also provide independent information with regard to the errors in the individual water balance components. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Todarodes sagittatus (N=1131) were opportunistically sampled from commercial and research trawling in Irish and Scottish waters between 1993 and 1998. The results suggest that the species is common in deep waters (>200 m) to the west of Ireland and Scotland, particularly in late summer and autumn. The size of squid caught was related to depth, with larger squid caught deeper, and is indicative of an ontogenetic, bathymetric migration. Females were more common (sex ratio 1·00:0·46), and attained a larger maximum size (520 mm mantle length (ML)) than males (426 mm ML). Mature females (360–520 mm ML) were caught in deep water (>500 m), between March and November, with a large catch of mature females taken off the west coast of Ireland in August 1996. Mature males (300–426 mm) were found from August to November. Potential fecundity was estimated to range from 205,000–523,500 eggs female−1. Putative daily increments in statoliths indicated a life cycle of slightly over a year, with rapid growth of approximately 1·8 mm d−1 during subadult and adult life. Fish were the most important prey of T. sagittatus and 17 fish prey taxa were identified, of which pelagic species were the most important.

    In deep-sea fans, fan lobes form from the stacking of the deposits of turbidity currents and other sediment gravity flows beyond the channel mouth. Slopes lateral or oblique to the main direction of turbidity currents exiting channel confinement can profoundly affect flow behavior and the distribution of facies and lithology in fan lobes. In this paper, we report on the analysis of multibeam and CHIRP subbottom data aimed at the study of the effects of a lateral slope on turbidity-current behavior and resultant geomorphology and stratigraphy of a modern fan lobe. The Villafranca fan lobe, the subject of this study, develops on the 0.5 degrees dipping seafloor of the Gioia intraslope basin in the southeastern Tyrrhenian Sea. The Villafranca is a transient fan lobe that has its downslope limit coinciding with a 200-m-high bathymetric step formed by the erosional flank of the Stromboli slope valley, perpendicular to the fan-lobe trend. A "lobe complex'' hierarchical level is assigned to the Villafranca fan lobe. The lobe complex develops beyond the mouth of the Villafranca leveed channel, which trends N and is oblique to the regional NW-dipping slope. The depositional topography created by an adjacent channel levee wedge to the west is the cause of the observed obliquity. The western and the eastern "lobes'' constitute the Villafranca lobe complex. Both lobes have mainly NW-trending channels, and therefore they do not conform to the classical divergent pattern of channels observed in deep-sea fan lobes. The channel trend is a result of the inability of flows to freely spread sideways, due to the presence of the lateral slope and the dip of the seafloor at the channel mouth. The western lobe has an up-dip apex with respect to the eastern one and is characterized by channels that nucleate on the downslope side of a channel-mouth bar and that die out distally before reaching the flank of the Stromboli slope valley. The eastern lobe, in contrast, has channels that are depositional upslope but on approaching the flank of Stromboli slope valley become mainly erosional or bypass features. The two lobes develop concomitantly, therefore an evolution due to compensational stacking with the two lobes being in different stages of development is here disregarded. It is therefore feasible that turbidity currents, which due to different initiating mechanisms have distinct magnitude and efficiency, deposit their load either in the eastern or in the western lobe. Another possibility is that single turbidity currents exiting the Villafranca channel mouth form two separate flow portions with different properties, which independently but simultaneously feed the eastern and the western lobe. In both cases, the effect of the lateral slope and the obliquity between the dip of the slope and the trend of the channel mouth are here considered as the primary factors controlling the differences in depositional style of the two lobes.

    Abstract The Yap subduction zone in the western Pacific presents some unique features compared to normal intra-oceanic subduction zones such as the subduction of an oceanic plateau. However, due to the relative paucity of geophysical data, the detailed structure remains unknown in this area. In this study, we present the latest high-quality swath bathymetry and multi-channel seismic data acquired synchronously in 2015 across the Yap subduction zone. The topographic and sedimentary features are intensively investigated and a modified evolutionary model of the Yap subduction zone is proposed. The two-stage evolution of the Parece Vela Basin (PVB) produced fabrics that are N-S trending and NW-SE trending. Our seismic data clearly reveal landslide deposits at the upper slope break of the forearc, to the north of the Yap Island, which was identified as the fault notch denoting a lithological boundary in previous work. The swath bathymetry and seismic profile reveal detailed horst and graben structures, including a crescent-shaped fault zone near the contact between the Yap Trench and the Caroline Ridge. A simple geometric model is proposed to explain the structure formation, indicating that the higher topography of the Caroline Ridge resulted in enhanced bending-related extension. A seismic angular unconformity (named R1) is identified in the Sorol Trough, marking the onset of rifting in the trough. Based on the sequence thickness and deposition rate by Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), it is deduced that the Sorol Trough formed at 10 Ma or even earlier. A modified model for the Yap subduction zone evolution is proposed, incorporating three major tectonic events: the proto-Yap Arc rupture in the Oligocene, the collision of the Caroline Ridge and the Yap Trench in the late Oligocene or middle Miocene, and the onset of the Sorol Trough rifting in the late Miocene.
