Projects

Pavement Resilience to Sea Level Rise and Potentia...

We are investigating the coastal processes and hazards that damage roadway pavement. This work combines hydrodynamic, groundwater, and pavement models, along with an adaptation impact assessment, to understand overtopping and ...

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 ...

Predicting Impacts of Sea Level Rise in the Northe...

We are assessing the impacts of sea level rise and coastal storms on marshes and oyster habitats in the northern Gulf of Mexico through the development of predictive models that ...

Rapid, Portable, Multiplexed Detection of Harmful ...

We are expanding algal toxin testing to include tests for saxitoxins and anatoxin-a. The new tool will give water managers and community-based monitoring networks the ability to rapidly quantify these ...

Refining Ecosystem Model Inputs for Sea Level Rise...

We are enhancing a locally relevant marsh model with new field data on the impacts of sea level rise to allow coastal managers to evaluate the vulnerability and inform restoration ...

Resolving the Effects of Resource Availability, Pr...

Aureococcus anophagefferens causes brown tides that have severely impacted fisheries, seagrass beds, and aquaculture in mid-Atlantic US coastal waters for three decades. The recent sequencing of the Aureococcus genome, combined ...

Salt Marsh Evolution along the South Atlantic Bigh...

We are advancing marsh modeling in the South Atlantic Bight (SAB) to provide high-resolution predictions of future marsh evolution and the wave attenuation of these habitats under varying sea level ...

Sea-Level Rise Modeling as a Catalyst for Effectiv...

In collaboration with The Nature Conservancy and the Hawaii Sentinel Site Cooperative, we are evaluating the effects of sea level rise of unique coastal habitats on the west coast of ...

Seasonal Forecasting of Karenia brevis Red Tide Bl...

This project is developing modeling tools to improve short term and seasonal predictions of toxic red tide Karenia brevis blooms in the Gulf of Mexico West Florida Shelf. The project ...

Single-day Intensive Sampling Quantifies Algal Tox...

NCCOS-sponsored researchers and their partners conducted one-day intensive water sampling events in 2018 and 2019 to create high spatial resolution snapshots of the amount and locations of cyanobacterial toxins across ...

Ice Seals as Sentinels for Algal Toxins in the Pac...

An NCCOS-supported study detected the algal toxins domoic acid and saxitoxin in three out of four species of ice seals in western and northern Alaska. The finding suggests that ice ...

Natural Algicide Eliminates Toxic Algae With Minim...

NCCOS-sponsored research on a natural algicide produced by Shewanella bacteria found that the compound can kill toxic algae without much harm to other organisms. The findings suggest that nature itself ...

Report on U.S. Marine HABs: History, Current Statu...

NCCOS recently supported a review of the status of marine HAB problems in the U.S., part of a global statistical analysis of harmful algal blooms (HAB) events. The study relies ...

Harmful Algal Bloom Symposium Highlights Early Car...

Credit: 10.5 U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae Planning Committee. The 10.5 U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae held at the end of May showcased the work of students, postdoctoral, and early ...

Bacterial Removal of Nitrogen, Methane from Gulf D...

NCCOS-supported researchers have determined the natural removal rates of nitrogen and the potent greenhouse gas methane from Louisiana's coastal waters. The study investigated patterns of pelagic denitrification (bacterial conversion of ...

Study Reviews Causes of Acidification in Large Est...

With ocean acidification threatening the health of aquatic organisms, a study funded by NCCOS, NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program, and the National Science Foundation reviewed a variety of processes that influence ...

Building Partnerships to Track Hypoxia in Marine E...

Smart dissolved oxygen sensor deployed on spot prawn traps by WA Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) managers as part of the Puget Sound pre-season fishery survey. Credit WA DFW ...

Researchers Evaluate Long-term Effect of Adding Sa...

NCCOS-sponsored research assessed the effectiveness of beach and dune nourishment on the morphological resilience of Dauphin Island, Alabama, for a 30-year period of beach management. Overall, the researchers found that ...

NOAA Forecasts Average ‘Dead Zone’ for Gulf of Mex...

NCCOS scientists are forecasting this summer’s Gulf of Mexico hypoxic zone or “dead zone”—an area of low to no oxygen that can kill fish and other marine life— to be ...
