NCCOS Researchers to Assist Washington State in Marine Planning

NCCOS scientists traveled to Washington State May 13-17 to support marine planning along the outer Pacific coast. NCCOS is helping inventory and assess key seafloor, groundfish, seabird and marine mammal datasets essential to effective marine planning. They are developing a data viewer that will help the state, other coastal managers, and researchers visualize seafloor datasets, […]

Western Lake Erie Basin Partners Meet on Management Practices

NCCOS-sponsored scientists with the hypoxia Ecological Forecasting Project in Lake Erie are presenting research findings related to Best Management Practices (BMPs), phosphorus loading, and climate interactions in the western Lake Erie watershed to the Western Lake Erie Basin Partnership on June 20 in Toledo, Ohio. NCCOS scientists will also present the methodology behind NOAA’s seasonal […]

NCCOS-sponsored Research Paper Receives Annual Award

An NCCOS-sponsored project publication was selected for the 2012 Chandler-Misener Award by the Journal of Great Lakes Research.   Titled “Historical pattern of phosphorus loading to Lake Erie watersheds,” the paper quantifies trends in phosphorus (P) loading to Lake Erie watersheds from 1935 to 2007. Over this 70-year period, P input to Lake Erie increased to peak values in […]

Ocean Acidification: NCCOS-funded Research Reveals Legacy Effect of Early Larval CO2 Exposure on Bivalve Survival and Growth

While, the negative impacts of increasing ocean acidification on clams, scallops and other bivalves the biological basis is still unclear, “legacy effect” of early CO2 explosure can play a significant role in bivalve population dynamics. NCCOS-funded researchers performed a series of experiments to look at the days-to-months impacts of carbon dioxide (CO2) on the larvae of northern quahogs […]

NCCOS Research Informs New Management Plan for Yellow Perch in Lake Erie

Yellow perch comprise Lake Erie’s largest commercial fishery and second most important recreational fishery.  We presented research results from the NCCOS ecological forecasting (EcoFore) Lake Erie project to the Lake Erie Percid Management Advisory Group (LEPMAG) at the Lake Erie Committee of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission meeting on March 27, 2013. The primary purpose […]

Recreational Water Pathogen Detection Workshops Build Skills for State Labs

The North Carolina Biotechnology Center funded NOAA and academic researchers to develop a training facility for public health officials and resource managers in advanced molecular methods to detect pathogens and harmful algae species more quickly and effectively. The first workshop, held March 11 – 15, 2013,  covered quantitative polymerase chain reaction techniques to detect Enterococcus, the […]

Lake Erie Nutrient Management Priorities Set at International Workshop

Don Scavia, a researcher whose work is funded in part by the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, presented results from his Lake Erie hypoxia ecological forecasting project. His presentation focused on phosphorus loading, climate influence on those loads, subsequent impacts on dissolved oxygen and harmful algal blooms, and best management practices to control nutrient runoff. Despite […]

Coastal Economies: Researching Aquaculture for Nutrient Mitigation in Long Island Sound

NOAA Ocean Science Blog sat down with Dr. Suzanne Bricker of NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS), Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment (CCMA), Coastal Ocean Assessments, Status, and Trends, to talk about her research to leverage aquaculture as a potential means for mitigating nutrient impacts on Long Island Sound. Thank you for sitting down with us, […]
