To provide coastal managers with the early warning needed to implement timely and effective mitigation strategies to reduce a harmful algal bloom’s negative impacts, we are producing rapid, easy-to-use kits ... Read More
We developed a device to provide resource managers and public-health officials with valuable, real-time data on harmful algal bloom (HAB) toxicity. This robotic, underwater sensor provides fast and accurate measurements ... Read More
Dr. Greg Doucette from the NCCOS Charleston Laboratory in South Carolina, along with his two NOAA teammates, received the celebrated 2019 Gears of Government President's Award. Dr. Greg Doucette (left) ... Read More
The National Harmful Algal Bloom Observing Network (NHABON) Working Group recently met to document current HAB observing capabilities and identify outstanding requirements or gaps in existing regional observing networks. During ... Read More
Last week, NOAA and their partners deployed an NCCOS-developed sensor for the algal neurotoxin domoic acid on an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) off the Washington coast. The processor, known as ... Read More
In late January 2017, NCCOS scientists Marc Suddleson and Greg Doucette joined U.S. and international colleagues at an Alliance for Coastal Technologies workshop funded by NOAA Integrated Ocean Observing System ... Read More
NCCOS scientists and their partners have completed technical preparations for the first deployment of an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) in the Great Lakes. The ESP - already in use on ... Read More
Sponsored researchers with the NCCOS ECOHAB project looking at regional harmful algal bloom 'hotspots' off coastal California are testing the feasibility of using a robotic water quality and toxin detection ... Read More
NCCOS scientist, Tina Mikulski,completed critical calibration of the domoic acid (DA) toxin sensor on an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) platform located at NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) in Seattle, ... Read More
An ecologically and economically disruptive harmful algal bloom (HAB) affected much of the northeast Pacific margin in 2015, during a prolonged oceanic warm anomaly. Caused by diatoms of the genus Pseudo-nitzschia, this HAB produced the highest particulate concentrations of the ... Read More
