Ken Coyle holds a research faculty position at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Institute of Marine Science. He has been involved in marine research in Alaska for more than thirty years, studying population dynamics and composition of zooplankton and benthos as fundamental links between primary producers and apex predators. His research has been focused primarily on the ecology of the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska shelves.  Ken has recently been involved in incorporating a nutrient-phytoplankton-zooplankton (NPZ) model into ROMS (a general circulation model) as part of a continuation of a separate multidisciplinary study (GLOBEC) of the Gulf of Alaska shelf ecosystem, and is continuing that work through the Gulf of Alaska Project. Ken is contributing to the Exploring Groundfish Dynamics with Integrated Biophysical Models component of this project.

Research

Awards

Supporting next generation scientists, researchers, and resource managers to further studies in marine science and to our mission.

Long-Term Monitoring

These are new or existing time-series projects that enhance the ability to understand the current state of marine ecosystems.

Examining how physical changes in the ocean influenced the flow of energy through the marine food web in the Bering Strait, Chukchi Sea, and western Beaufort Sea.

Studying the survival and recruitment of five focal groundfish species (Pacific cod, Pacific ocean perch, walleye pollock, arrowtooth flounder, sablefish) during their first year of life.

Understanding the impacts of climate change and dynamic sea ice cover on the eastern Bering Sea ecosystem in partnership with the National Science Foundation.

Northern

Bering Sea

COMING SOON! Focusing on the northern Bering Sea and will include consideration of upstream and downstream ecosystems in the southeastern Bering Sea, western Bering Sea, and Chukchi Sea.
