We are estimating the economic value from natural and nature-based infrastructure investments to stabilize coastline. Using hazard risks along the U.S. Pacific Northwest coast, we are assigning a dollar value ... Read More
Blooms of Alexandrium fundyense result in economic losses to fisheries, aquaculture, and pose public health risks. Typically, A. fundyense growth and toxicity are seen as dependent on light, temperature, and ... Read More
We are examining the impact of low-oxygen (hypoxia) stress on coral reef ecosystems. Coral reefs are in decline, and human-assisted restoration is actively trying to reverse this trend. Our project ... Read More
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 ... Read More
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 ... Read More
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 ... Read More
We are supporting research that will determine how future increases in temperature increases and ocean acidity will affect harmful algal bloom species (HABs) and their grazers. Light micrograph of Karlodinium ... Read More
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are increasing in frequency and pose a threat to human and environmental health. Blooms of Karenia brevis occur nearly annually along the Florida coast which has ... Read More
Cyanobacteria blooms and toxin production are an urgent contemporary problem in the US and worldwide. Water quality models are important tools for managing these problems, but currently the utility of ... Read More
HABs Grab 2019 research team. Credit J. Chaffin, Ohio State University. Initiated and funded in part by NCCOS, scientists in the Western Basin of Lake Erie conducted the largest coordinated ... Read More
The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System Regional Association (GCOOS-RA) are pleased to announce a funding opportunity for projects assessing ... Read More
Dr. Nancy Rabalais (at left) and crew, aboard R/V Pelican, prepare to deploy a conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD) carousel (rosette) containing an array of Niskin water sampling bottles. The ... Read More
The ability of deep, light dependent mesophotic corals to grow in low-light conditions is a poorly understood realm of biology. Research, sponsored in part by NCCOS, found that the ability ... Read More
NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science provided a Harmful Algal Bloom Event Response award of $15,000 to NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center Wildlife Algal-toxin Research and Response Network (WARRN-West) to ... Read More
Third NOAA Emerging Technologies Workshop, June 25-26, 2019, NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction, College Park, MD. Credit NOAA. At the Third NOAA Emerging Technologies Workshop, NCCOS’ contributions to ... Read More
This manual presents geographic information by state of occurrence, and descriptions of the socio-economic impact created by the invasion of nonindigenous and native transplanted animal species in the Laurentian Great Lakes and the coastal waters of the United States. It ... Read More
