  1. In the North Pacific, variations in isopycnal depth influence the biogeochemical characteristics of the water column and the aragonite saturation horizon (ZΩa) during interannual events. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of the 2011 La Niña conditions on ZΩa in Todos Santos Bay (Baja California, Mexico)
  2. The market squid Doryteuthis opalescens deposits embryo capsules onto the continental shelf from Baja California to southern Alaska, yet little is known about the environment of embryo habitat. This study provides a baseline of environmental data and insights on factors underlying site selection for embryo deposition off southern California, and
  3. A critical need in California is to develop robust biological indicators that can be used to understand emerging impacts to marine systems arising from human-induced global change. Among the most worrisome environmental stressors are those associated with shifts in the carbonate system of seawater, including reductions in ocean pH and
