The objective of Oceanological and Hydrobiological Studies, an international journal published by the University of Gdańsk in cooperation with the Academic Publishing Company Walter DeGruyter, is to provide the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on the current knowledge in the fields of science related to both oceanology and hydrobiology. The main emphasis is on publishing high quality articles, easily available to scientists from all over the world. As an editorial team, we are convinced that Oceanological and Hydrobiological Studies will continue to grow as a journal meant for scientists and researchers who wish to keep abreast of the latest developments in these fields of science.
Numerical simulation of the wave-induced Stokes drift effect on sea surface temperature in the North Pacific
The effect of the wave-induced Stokes drift is not taken into account in traditional ocean circulation models used for SST simulations. The spectral parameterization scheme is considered to be the most accurate of the wave-induced
Although well represented in the fossil diatom flora throughout Europe and Asia, from the early-middle Miocene to the Quaternary, Stauroneis balatonis is considered a very rare diatom with a contemporary distribution limited to two ancient
First record of the abyssal bivalve Halicardia flexuosa (Bivalvia: Verticordiidae) in the Bay of Biscay
The occurrence of the flexed verticord, Halicardia flexuosa (Verrill & S. Smith [in Verrill], 1881), is reported for the first time from the Bay of Biscay (North Iberian Peninsula). This rare bivalve was collected from
Do abundance and percentage of dipteran larvae and Oligochaeta indicate low water quality in streams and lake littoral?
The presence of chironomids and/or oligochaetes is generally considered to be an indication of poor status of freshwater. Non-chironomid dipterans show unclear trends. The abundance and percentage of these groups are rarely used as potential
Ecology and distribution patterns of Chara connivens (Charophyta, Characeae) on the Canary Islands – the first record from Fuerteventura
The paper presents the first record of a Chara connivens (Characeae) stand from Fuerteventura (Canary Islands, Spain). The species was previously recorded only on Tenerife and Lanzarote, mostly in marine and artificial habitats. Physicochemical parameters
Effect of phytoplankton adaptation on the distribution of its biomass and chlorophyll a concentration in the surface layer of the Black Sea
Using the field data collected in the Black Sea in September 2005–May 2013, the authors studied the spatial variability of the ratio of organic carbon to chlorophyll a (C:Chl a) in the sea surface layer
Impact of water salinity on long-term dynamics and spatial distribution of benthic invertebrates in the Small Aral Sea
In 1996–2008, macrozoobenthos of the Small Aral Sea was investigated. A total of 320 macrozoobenthos samples were collected. Statistical analysis and statistical mapping were performed using Statistica and Photoshop software. Ten taxa of macrozoobenthos were
Integrated approach to quality indices and health risk assessment of water in the Bahr Yusuf Canal, Fayoum, Egypt
The Bahr Yusuf Canal is the life artery of the Fayoum Province, which provides the province with two thirds of the freshwater quota from the Nile River. The present work was carried out to assess
