Defining Nationally Consistent Coastal Flood Sever...

We are using machine learning to determine more accurate flood severity thresholds along U.S. coastlines, particularly in places where tide gauge data is sparse, which will inform coastal flooding adaptation ...

Development of Adjusted Digital Elevation Models t...

We are developing historical digital elevation models (DEMs) that will help improve predictions of marsh extent under future sea level rise. Land managers can use this information to determine where ...

Employing a Novel Molecular Toolbox for Rapid, Sen...

The diatom Pseudo-nitzschia produces the neurotoxin domoic acid, which can impact both humans and marine wildlife when consumed. This project seeks to build and implement a diverse molecular toolbox to ...

Fighting Climate-Driven Collapse of Marine Species...

Supporting Equitable Nature-based Solutions for Fl...

Fishponds, like this one in Kaloko-Honokōhau, Hawaii, are increasingly threatened by sea level rise, strong winds, and large storm waves. Credit: Kimberly Crawford We are co-producing research with two frontline ...

Toward a National Coastal Ecosystem Prediction Sys...

This project aims to deliver nationally consistent marsh habitat predictions with sea level rise. Leveraging a multi-agency partnership including modelers and end users, these co-developed results will provide science that ...

NCCOS-funded Study Helps Guide Estuary Restoration...

An interdisciplinary science team leveraged support from NOAA, USGS, and the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (RESTORE) to complete an evaluation for how restoring headland structures would impact the Grand ...

Research Reveals the Potential of Nature-Based Sol...

As we confront the escalating threats of climate change, there is growing interest in the potential of restored nature to offer a sustainable and effective response to the challenges posed ...

Below Average Summer 2023 ‘Dead Zone’ Measured in ...

NCCOS-supported scientists have determined that this year’s Gulf of Mexico “dead zone” — an area of low oxygen that can kill fish and marine life — is approximately 3,058 square ...

New Research on Dunes Supports Better Protection f...

Dunes at Bogue Banks, North Carolina, with fencing that helps build dunes by trapping sand. Credit: NOAA. North Carolina’s Outer Banks have some of the highest rates of coastal erosion ...

NOAA Forecasts Smaller than Average ‘Dead Zone’ fo...

The Mississippi River watershed, which encompasses over 40% of the continental U.S and crosses 22 state boundaries, is made up of farms (yellow), cities (red), and natural lands (green). Nitrogen ...

Flood Model Predicts Impacts, Benefits of Differen...

A new study, partially funded by NCCOS, developed a framework for evaluating the physical, economic, and demographic impacts and benefits of engineered, nature-based, and hybrid adaptation strategies to address coastal ...

New Research Improves Flood Modeling for Large Urb...

Coastal managers need accurate flood forecasts to protect communities from inundation. New research, funded in part by NCCOS, improves how levees are represented in flood models used to identify vulnerabilities ...
