Projects

Azaspiracid: An Emerging Algal Toxin

Azaspiracids are a group of toxins first reported in the 1990s in Western European waters and are now reported to occur along both the East and West coasts of North ...

Developing Biomarkers for Bloom Growth and Death i...

The microscopic alga Karenia brevis causes harmful algal blooms (red tides) in the Gulf of Mexico. By studying the processes regulating the life cycle of K. brevis, we developed biomarkers ...

Early Warning for Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning in t...

This project will help mitigate HAB-related disruptions to highly productive Gulf of Maine shellfisheries with new knowledge, observing technology advances, and enhanced capacity to deliver early warnings and forecasts of ...

Enhancing Third-generation Environmental Sample Pr...

Monitoring the increase in cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (HABs) in nearshore environments is challenging. Recent development of a long-range autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with a third-generation Environmental Sample Processor ...

Genomics of HAB Dinoflagellates: Identification of...

We are working to identify key genes and processes encoded in the dinoflagellate genome that are responsible for regulating the growth, maintenance, and termination of toxic dinoflagellate blooms. Analogous to ...

HABON-NE, An Adaptive Observing Network for Real-T...

New England coastal waters have long been impacted by Alexandrium, a species that causes paralytic shellfish poisoning. Other species have recently emerged in the Gulf of Maine, including Pseudo-nitzschia and ...

Monitoring and Management of Lipophilic Shellfish ...

Lipid and fat soluble (lipophilic) algal toxins linked to diarrhetic shellfish poisoning and azaspiracid shellfish poisoning are emerging threats to recreational, subsistence, and commercial shellfisheries in the state of Washington ...

National Analytical Response to Harmful Algal Bloo...

We use extreme events to research new or changing impacts of harmful algal blooms in coastal waters. The NOAA Analytical Response Team leverages cutting-edge analytical methods and collaborative relationships with ...

Oceanographic and Cellular Controls on Domoic Acid...

Domoic acid is a neurotoxin produced by some diatoms in the genus Pseudo-nitzschia. Domoic acid can accumulate in shellfish and fish, and cause illness or death in humans, marine mammals, ...

Portable Toxin Detection Technology to Support Gre...

This project improves the rapid detection of cyanotoxins in the field to provide managers with timely information on risk and minimize exposure to stakeholders. The team will pilot use of ...

NCCOS and Partners Initiate Months-Long Surveillan...

Tina Mikulski calibrates domoic acid sensors on multiple 2G ESPs at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution-LOSOS laboratory prior to delivery to their Fall deployment. National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science ...

Daily Real-Time Observations Help Improve Domoic A...

A 2G ESP (inside its orange enclosure) with NCCOS domoic acid sensor onboard sits on the deck of a NOAA/NWFSC vessel enroute to deployment for the 2023 mission. Also visible ...

‘Team’ of Uncrewed Vehicles Reveals Extent, Toxici...

In a milestone achievement, NCCOS, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) deployed a coordinated "team" of five MBARI long-range autonomous underwater vehicles ...

EPA, Partners Launch Water Toxicity Sensor Challen...

Monitoring the increasing number of contaminants in water is an ongoing concern for water treatment systems and water resource managers. Current methods for detecting and identifying many of these contaminants ...

Publication Provides Guidance on Implementing Earl...

An international team of researchers and managers that includes NCCOS scientists published technical guidance to help improve harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring and forecasting around the globe. The document provides ...

Scientists Train Underwater Gliders to Find, Track...

The dynamic nature of the ocean, including its many chemical and biological processes, makes it challenging to monitor microscopic, marine algae in real time, but NCCOS-funded scientists have shown it ...

First Real-time Toxicity Assessment of Lake Erie A...

Preparing the 3G-ESP for use on the Long-Range Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (LRAUV). Top left: NCCOS scientist inspects custom-fabricated microcystin sensor chip at Hollings Marine Laboratory in Charleston, South Carolina. Top ...

NCCOS and IOOS Contribute to Successful Kickoff of...

On September 1, 2021 NCCOS, the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOSⓇ) Office, and the IOOS Association organized the inaugural meeting of a newly formed Harmful Algal Bloom Observing Group ...

Yessotoxins Responsible for Mass Shellfish Mortali...

Causality of an extreme harmful algal bloom in Monterey Bay, California, during the 2014-2016 northeast Pacific warm anomaly

An ecologically and economically disruptive harmful algal bloom (HAB) affected much of the northeast Pacific margin in 2015, during a prolonged oceanic warm anomaly. Caused by diatoms of the genus Pseudo-nitzschia, this HAB produced the highest particulate concentrations of the ...
