Projects

Biscayne Bay PhycoNet

Why We Care Biscayne Bay is a coastal embayment in southeast Florida that has experienced rapid human population growth over the last century, resulting in steady declines in water and ...

Causes and Consequences of Hypoxic Events in Low-i...

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 ...

Different Varieties of Microcystins Have Differing...

Research technicians from Dr. Chaffin's laboratory collect Lake Erie water samples for analysis as part of the NCCOS funded study. Models predicting the amount of Microcystis, an alga that forms ...

NOAA Announces Funding Opportunity to Advance Unde...

NOAA has developed an interactive story map that documents the economic and social impacts of harmful algal blooms. It is based on a compilation of data from almost 40 events, ...

Below Average Summer 2023 ‘Dead Zone’ Measured in ...

NCCOS-supported scientists have determined that this year’s Gulf of Mexico “dead zone” — an area of low oxygen that can kill fish and marine life — is approximately 3,058 square ...

Harmful Algal Bloom Technology Incubator Launched

Pond next to Visitors’ Center in Monocacy National Battlefield. Photo by Jane Thomas, Integration and Application Network (ian.umces.edu/media-library) Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are a growing concern across the United States ...

Marine Mammal Strandings in Southern California Pr...

NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal and Ocean Science (NCCOS) Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Event Response program awarded $12,550 to Southern California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP), University of California- Santa ...

NCCOS Supports Collection of Real-Time Harmful Alg...

Images captured by the Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) aboard the Norseman II off northwestern Alaska on August 21, 2022. Most of the images are of cells of Alexandrium catenella, a HAB ...

Flood Model Predicts Impacts, Benefits of Differen...

A new study, partially funded by NCCOS, developed a framework for evaluating the physical, economic, and demographic impacts and benefits of engineered, nature-based, and hybrid adaptation strategies to address coastal ...

Tracking Fish Movements to Understand Habitat Conn...

National marine sanctuaries protect America's most iconic natural and cultural marine resources. To assess the effectiveness of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary (FGBNMS) at protecting habitat for key ...

Los Angeles Uses NCCOS-funded Flood Risk Study for...

Los Angeles Flood Risk - distribution of predominant race/ethnicity (left) and flood depth (right). Six weeks after the scientific study Large and inequitable flood risks in Los Angeles, California was ...

San Diego Estuaries Research Symposium Highlights ...

On February 7, 2023, NCCOS-supported researchers under the Coastal Hypoxia Research Program presented their findings at the virtual San Diego Estuaries Research Symposium. The symposium was designed to bring together ...
