Global Inventory of AUV and Glider Technology available for Routine Marine Surveying. [@ September 2013]
(National Oceanography Centre for NERC Marine Renewable Energy Knowledge Exchange, Southampton, UK, 2013)
Systematic global assessment of reef fish communities by the Reef Life Survey program.
Discussion of the Reef Life Survey Methods Manual: https://www.oceanbestpractices.net/handle/11329/447. Established in 2007 as a means to overcome the shortage of resources and capacity to provide quantitative data on ...
Standardised survey procedures for monitoring rocky and coral reef ecological communities.
(Reef Life Survey, Hobart, Tasmania, 2015)
This manual describes the standard Reef Life Survey (RLS) methods for estimating densities of fishes, large macroinvertebrates, and sessile communities on rocky and coral reefs. These (and compatible) methods ...

Lagrangian ocean analysis: fundamentals and practices.
Lagrangian analysis is a powerful way to analyse the output of ocean circulation models and other ocean velocity data such as from altimetry. In the Lagrangian approach, large sets of virtual particles are integrated within ...
Modeling What We Sample and Sampling What We Model: Challenges for Zooplankton Model Assessment.
Zooplankton are the intermediate trophic level between phytoplankton and fish, and are an important component of carbon and nutrient cycles, accounting for a large proportion of the energy transfer to pelagic fishes and ...
