We are investigating the processes that lead to hypoxia in Southern California’s lagoons, and identifying its ecological impacts. These small estuaries, which have tidal inlets that can close to the ...

Climate Change and Acidification Impacts on Cyanob...

The Great Lakes experience recurrent toxin-producing cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (cHABs). While cHAB events have been well-studied in recent years, little attention has been given to acidification in the Great ...

Coastal Acidification and Harmful Algal Blooms in ...

This project aims to determine how harmful algal blooms (HABs) in New York waters respond to coastal acidification, how current and future climate change conditions will affect these HABs, and ...

Codevelopment of Modeling Tools to Manage Sediment...

We will advance scientific, engineering, and policy perspectives on how sediment can be managed in coastal lowlands to reduce flood risk, bank instability, and erosion risk. We will evaluate sediment ...

Cross-Regional Comparison of Dinophysis Bloom Dyna...

Harmful algal blooms of Dinophysis have recently emerged as a human health threat in the U.S., resulting in closures of shellfish harvesting to prevent Diarrhetic Shellfish Poisoning. We are working ...

Determining Habitat Requirements and Connectivity ...

We are investigating habitat requirements and connectivity for key reef-associated fishes in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary and surrounding areas. Marine protected areas (MPAs) are designated to conserve ...

Developing a Machine Learning-Based, High Resoluti...

Blooms of Alexandrium occur in the Gulf of Maine each year and produce toxins that can accumulate in shellfish, causing Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning. Regional management agencies conduct rigorous monitoring to ...

Development and Implementation of an Operational H...

This project developed a prototype operational statistical nowcast/forecast system for three harmful algal bloom (HAB) organisms in the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, specifically the dinoflagellates Karlodinium veneficum, Prorocentrum minimus, and the ...

DinoSHIELD: A Slow-release Natural Algicide Produc...

We will field test an environmentally neutral method to control harmful algal blooms. Our work will provide managers with information on the applications of a natural algicide as an environmentally ...
