Included in this year’s Business Meeting:

  • Dinner
  • Chapter news updates
  • Keynote presentation by Dr. Barbara Bailey

Time series of physical and biological properties of the ocean are a valuable resource for developing models for ecological forecasting and ecosystem-based management. We describe the development of a nonlinear model that predicts the abundance of the important zooplankton species Calanus finmarchicus from hydrographic data from the Gulf of Maine. Forecasts are constructed for the model fit to 1978-2003 bimonthly data and corresponding forecasts intervals are obtained by the stationary bootstrap. The properties of the distribution free prediction intervals based on the stationary bootstrap will be investigated. The results of neural network model fits, forecasts, and forecast intervals to nonlinear time series data generated from the Rossler nonlinear dynamical system will be presented.
