    2019-12-10 · The ice sheet was close to a state of balance in the 1990s, but annual losses have risen since then, peaking at 345 ± 66 billion tonnes per year in 2011. In all, Greenland lost 3,902 ± 342

Only one segment of the beluga aggregation near Som-erset Island moves to West Greenland in the winter (Heide-Jørgensen et al., 2003).

    2016-11-11 · Only one segment of the beluga aggregation near Somerset Island moves to West Greenland in the winter (Heide‐Jørgensen et al., 2003). The rest winters in the North Water region in northern Baffin Bay (Heide‐Jørgensen et al ., 2016 ) and therefore abundance estimates from Somerset Island (e.g. Innes et al ., 2002 ) are not directly

    An important late summer aggregation of fin whales

    2014-8-7 · The distribution at sea of upper trophic levels—seabirds and marine mammals—is depending on their food availability: high concentrations reflect high prey abundance and thus high biological production. Polar marine ecosystems are characterized by low biodiversity and high biological patchiness. The distribution of predators, as a consequence, shows a similar patchiness. During two

Suppose that individual correlations, estimated during the first stage of the analysis, were found to be statistically significant. The same (or similar) relationships are likely to emerge under the aggregation scheme featured in Fig. 1a. According to this scheme, the aver-
