NCCOS’s Phytoplankton Monitoring Network trained over 30 environmental tribal personnel from Southeast Alaska and Kodiak Island in toxic phytoplankton sampling and identification. The training took part during the 8th Annual ... Read More
An independent quality control testing laboratory has validated NCCOS research findings on nanobubble ozone technology (NBOT), confirming it is highly effective in controlling algae, bacteria, and motile zooplankton in ship ... Read More
This document contains analytical methods that detail the procedures for determining major and trace element concentrations in bivalve tissue and sediment samples collected as part of the National Status and Trends Program (NS&T) for the years 2000-2006. Previously published NOAA ... Read More
This document describes the analytical methods used to quantify core organic chemicals in tissue and sediment collected as part of NOAA's National Status and Trends Program (NS&T) for the years 2000-2006. Organic contaminate analytical methods used during the early years ... Read More
There have been numerous studies on various mammalian species regarding vascular changes in uterine arteries elucidating the effects of parity. In equids, vascular changes of uterine arteries have been demonstrated to occur in uniparous and multiparous mares. The severity of ... Read More
The Bottlenose Dolphin Health and Risk Assessment (HERA) Project, initiated in 2003, is a collaborative effort between the National Ocean Service's Center for Coastal Environmental Health and Biomolecular Research and Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution. This comprehensive, integrated, multi-disciplinary research project ... Read More
The purpose of this document is to establish a consisten method for building and operating the mesocosms systems. Secondly, this document serves to transfer and promulgate the technology, knowledge and experience gained from the past 11 years of research to ... Read More
This report describes the working of National Centers for Coastal Ocean Service (NCCOS) Wave Exposure Model (WEMo) capable of predicting the exposure of a site in estuarine and closed water to local wind generated waves. WEMo works in two different ... Read More
