The Florida manatee inhabits environments in which blooms of the toxic dinoflagellate, Karenia brevis, frequently occur. K. brevis produces brevetoxins, that result in fish kills, contamination of shellfish, and respiratory ... Read More
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
The Gulf of Maine is impacted annually by Alexandrium fundyense blooms which can result in paralytic shellfish poisoning. Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) leads to significant economic impacts. The paralytic shellfish ... 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
NCCOS-supported scientists evaluated potential economic impacts to the fisheries sector from expansion of the Pulley Ridge Habitat Area of Particular Concern (HAPC), located roughly 150 miles off Florida's southwest coast, ... Read More
NCCOS-sponsored research has documented the presence of three harmful algal bloom (HAB) toxins at seven different locations, about 18 to 33 miles apart, off the coast of southern California. All ... Read More
NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, in cooperation with the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries and the Office of Exploration and Research, awarded $599,673 of an anticipated four-year, $2.4 ... Read More
NCCOS-supported scientists are using a new technology developed by undergraduate students at the University of California, San Diego to measure the impacts of low oxygen (hypoxia) on oysters living in ... Read More
Fluorescent images of a harmful dinoflagellate before (left) and after (middle and right) exposure to the Shewanella-derived algicide. Note the impacts on the nucleus, shown in blue. The research points ... Read More
NCCOS funded improvements made to an in situ robotic biological sensing system, called the Environmental Sample Processor, are being shared at three major ocean science conferences in the fall of ... Read More
NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) are pleased to announce support for 12 new and 22 continuing harmful algal bloom (HAB) research awards. The awards, totaling $10.2M, fund ... 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
