Setting Shared Goals for South Florida’s Marine an...

We facilitated a process to identify the characteristics and key regulating processes of a sustainable South Florida coastal marine ecosystem. Using the best available science from academia, agencies, and non-governmental ...

Shellfish Killers: An Optimized Early Warning Prog...

We are collecting data to understand the impacts of shellfish-killing algae and their toxins on aquaculture farms and wild populations and to develop a warning system for growers and managers ...

Strengthening Early Warning and Forecasts of Domoi...

In the Pacific Northwest (PNW), blooms of Pseudo-nitzschia that produce domoic acid (DA) are a significant human health threat and extremely costly to coastal communities. This project improves early warnings ...

Surface Transportation, Sea Level Rise, and Coasta...

In collaboration with the Alabama Department of Transportation, we are evaluating the effects of sea level rise on road and ferry access infrastructure in coastal Alabama and determining the ability ...

The Columbia River Plume and Harmful Algal Blooms ...

We identified the oceanographic causes and transport routes for the harmful alga Pseudo-nitzschia in the offshore waters of the Pacific Northwest and improved predictability of the arrival of harmful algal ...

The Dinoflagellate-Specific Algicide IRI-160AA: Is...

Building on previous research that showed the bacteria Shewanella sp. IRI-160 produces an algicide targeting dinoflagellates with no effect on other phytoplankton, the project team will determine the concentration of ...

The Role of Nitric Oxide in Promoting Heterosigma ...

Heterosigma akashiwo has emerged as a threat to finfish and shellfish stocks resulting in significant impacts to the coastal economy. We are working to identify the mechanisms and nitrogen sources ...

Toward a Predictive Understanding of Cochlodinium ...

Large blooms of Cochlodinium polykrikoides have occurred throughout the lower Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries in recent decades and appear to be followed by increasingly intense blooms of the ichthyotoxic ...

Towards a Predictive Understanding of Our Ecosyste...

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 ...

Tracking the Extent and Effect of Hypoxia on Comme...

Low oxygen or hypoxic zones have increased in the Pacific Northwest. We are working with Dungeness crab fishermen in Oregon to deploy dissolved oxygen sensors on commercial crab pots to ...

Wetlands in Intermittently Closed Estuaries Can Bu...

Along the U.S. Pacific Coast, many estuaries are not permanently open to the ocean, but shift between open and closed states. A NCCOS-supported study tested the hypothesis that intermittently-closed estuary ...

Potential Effects of Bigheaded Carps on Four Great...

A NCCOS study, co-sponsored with the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, used an ecosystem model to evaluate the potential risk of two species of highly invasive bigheaded carp fish (a type ...

Communicating and Understanding Ecosystem Services...

NCCOS-funded researchers from six institutions report on insights and lessons learned from stakeholder engagement. The engagement was conducted during a multi-year transdisciplinary project focused on quantifying and communicating the benefits ...

Human Influences on Beach Loss (and Growth) in Ora...

Beaches are highly dynamic and their shape and size is the product of sediment being transported to the coast by rivers and bluff erosion and then shaped by physical forces ...

Research Paper Deemed One of Special Significance ...

A research paper, supported in part by NCCOS, measuring the metabolic cost to a red tide dinoflagellate to defend itself against predation (consumption) has been recommended by the prestigious Faculty ...

Management of Wetland Impoundments for Fish, Mosqu...

Suisun Marsh (CA) collage. Credit USDOI et al, 2011. In San Francisco Bay’s Suisun Marsh, NCCOS sponsored research compared the plant species diversity, abundance, and community composition among natural tidal ...

Ecosystem Approach to Everglades Water Flow Needed...

A new study partially funded by the NCCOS Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) Program describes the various stressors that have impacted South Florida ecosystems over the last ...

HAB Bulletin Supports Quinault Tribal Access to Ra...

On April 12, 2021, the Quinault Indian Nation welcomed tribal razor clam diggers to Mocrocks Beach, Washington. This is the first time tribal members have been able to access this ...

Temperature and Oxygen Tolerances of Marine Specie...

NCCOS-supported researchers found that marine organism geographic distributions are best predicted by measuring temperature and dissolved oxygen together. Temperature and oxygen are closely linked in the physiology of marine animals ...

NCCOS Assists Response to Quantify Toxin Accumulat...

NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) provided a harmful algal bloom (HAB) Event Response award of $15,482 to the University of Florida, Florida’s Clinic for the Rehabilitation of ...
