How Will Changing Temperature and Oxygen Condition...

We are supporting the application of coastal ocean models to determine the vulnerability of important species to changing temperature and oxygen in the California Current. This will enable coastal managers ...

Improving Species Distribution and Seafloor Maps t...

Our work provided the state of Washington and the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary with new information to prioritize seafloor mapping, and to better understand seabird, pinniped and cetacean distributions ...

Mapping and Analysis of West Coast Groundfish

We are developing groundfish distribution maps to support fisheries management and conservation. The maps are based on a compilation and analysis of fish observations and environmental data, and innovative spatial ...

Mapping and Modeling Mid-Atlantic Seabirds to Supp...

Seabirds and other birds that spend time at sea are wide-ranging and highly mobile, and mapping their at-sea distributions presents a significant challenge. We are producing high-resolution, predictive maps of ...

Marine Biogeographic Assessment of Three National ...

We assessed the distribution and abundance of selected marine species and habitats off the north central California coast on behalf of NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, who used our ...

Marine Bird Spatial Distributions on the Pacific O...

Currently, there is a gap in useable information regarding marine bird distributions on the U.S. Pacific Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). We are synthesizing available high-quality, at-sea data to produce high-resolution, ...

Mercury Hot Spots and Bioaccumulation in Fish

We identify which species of fish and which harvest locations expose consumers the most to potentially toxic mercury. With this information, we seek to develop the ability to predict which ...

Modeling and mapping marine bird distributions on ...

Seabirds and other marine birds are wide-ranging and highly mobile so mapping their at-sea distributions presents a significant challenge. The purpose of this project was to produce high-resolution predictive maps ...

National Inventory of Deep-sea Corals and Sponges:...

We are working in support of NOAA’s Deep Sea Coral Research and Technology Program to locate, map, and characterize deep-sea coral and sponge ecosystems throughout U.S. and international waters. Information ...

New Tools to Aid in Managing Ciguatera Poisoning R...

Ciguatera fish poisoning is the most frequently reported non-bacterial illness associated with eating fish in the United States and the U. S. territorial islands. Ciguatera significantly impacts commercial and recreational ...

NCCOS Helps Define Best Practices for Modeling Dis...

Predictive habitat modeling for an example deep-sea coral species along the U.S. West Coast. From left to right, locations of observed coral occurrences, predicted distribution of relative habitat suitability, and ...

Hypoxia Leads to Atlantic Croaker Decline in Gulf ...

Distribution of bottom-water dissolved oxygen July 28-August 3, 2015 (west of the Mississippi River delta). Black line indicates dissolved oxygen level of 2 mg/L. (Data: Nancy R. Rabalais, LUMCON, and ...

Study of Freshwater Turtles to Improve Treatment o...

New research is paying off long-term for endangered sea turtles facing illness and even death during Florida red tides. From 2011-2014, the NCCOS sponsored project “Brevetoxin Metabolism and Physiology – ...

Hypoxia Effects on Fish and Fisheries in the Gulf ...

Dr. Kim de Mutsert, lead Principal Investigator (PI) for the newly awarded Northern Gulf of Mexico project ' User-driven tools to predict and assess effects of reduced nutrients an hypoxia ...

NCCOS Leads Key Topics at International Coral Reef...

This week, staff from the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) led special sessions and gave individual presentations at the 13th International Coral Reef Symposium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The ...

2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting Showcases NCCOS Resear...

The 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting this past winter featured the research of NCCOS scientists and sponsored principal investigators. Topics included ocean acidification, hypoxia, blue carbon, and harmful algal blooms. NCCOS ...

Ciguatera Fish Poisoning Predicted to Increase wit...

A new NOAA study,published in the journal Ecological Modeling,anticipates an increase in the incidence of ciguatera fish poisoning (CFP) in the Gulf of Mexico and the U.S. Southeast Atlantic coast ...

Puget Sound Water Quality Review Highlights NCCOS ...

The Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program released the 4th annual report on marine water conditions in Puget Sound for 2014 on September 9, 2015. The report, ' Puget Sound Marine ...

NOAA North Atlantic Region Collaborates on Ecologi...

On May 2, 2013, NOAA's North Atlantic Regional Collaboration Team convened a workshop at the Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region in Woods Hole, MA to explore regional capabilities ...
