Summary This project evaluated three shoreline cleaner products (Accell Clean SWA, PES-51, and CytoSol). We compared the biological effects and chemical interactions of the products with oil using a simulated ... Read More
We are identifying the toxic effects that mosquito-control agents may have on estuarine species and the coastal environment. The information we gather is being placed in a database of mosquito-control ... Read More
We tested the toxicity of pesticides to shrimp and phytoplankton to better understand the environmental risks of these chemicals. We found that pesticide toxicity can change with temperature and salinity ... Read More
A research collaboration between NCCOS scientists and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has documented the negative effects of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) on the health of the Eastern ... Read More

NCCOS scientists presented their research on oil spill mitigation products at the first quarter meeting of the Interagency Coordinating Committee on Oil Pollution Research (ICCOPR), which was also attended by ... Read More
The Governors' South Atlantic Alliance held the Southeast Living Shorelines Workshop at the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science in Charleston on October 12-13, 2016. In an effort to expand ... Read More
NOAA Hollings scholars Brittany Evans (Eckerd College) and Catherine Nguyen (University of Maryland) spent this summer at the NCCOS laboratory in Charleston, South Carolina, researching the effects of oil spill ... Read More
NCCOS scientists recently used tidal estuarine simulation units (mesocosms) to study the crude oil-removal efficiency of shoreline cleaners and the potential impacts of removed oil on an estuary. Oil spills ... Read More
NOAA's Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) lists saltmarshes along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts as the most vulnerable habitat to oil spills. As a result of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig accident, more that 200 million gallons of crude oil ... Read More
This cruise report is a summary of a field survey conducted within two Great Lakes Region Areas of Concern (AOCs), Ashtabula River and Milwaukee Estuary, August 18 – 25, 2012. Synoptic sampling of multiple ecological indicators was conducted in the ... Read More
Estuaries provide critical nursery habitat for many commercially and recreationally important fish and shellfish species. These productive, diverse ecosystems are particularly vulnerable to pollution because they serve as repositories for nonpoint-source contaminants from upland sources, such as pesticide runoff. Atrazine, ... Read More
Salt marsh ecosystems are sensitive habitats that may be susceptible to oil and oil spill mitigation chemicals during clean up. This research project assessed the toxicity of three shoreline cleaners (SLC) in laboratory and mesocosm exposures, determined petroleum hydrocarbon distributions ... Read More
