Projects

Advancing an Integrated HAB Detection and Monitori...

This project will improve monitoring and response to harmful blooms of cyanobacteria and marine algae and a suite of algal toxins they produce that have been documented across the freshwater ...

Application of Clay Flocculation for Removal of Ka...

Despite routine application in Asia, clay flocculation technology to control harmful algal blooms has not been adopted in the U.S., largely because of the lack of data on U.S. ecosystems ...

Characterizing Benthic Habitats Around Saipan, CNM...

In 2019, NOAA launched the Pacific Mapping Cooperative: RICHARD (Rainier Integrates Charting Hydrography and Reef Demographics) Marianas Campaign to develop a plan to conduct much-needed mapping in the Marianas Archipelago ...

Coral Reef Ecosystem Studies: Integrating Science ...

In response to the continued decline of coral reef ecosystem health, we developed a research program to define and understand the causes and effects of reef degradation and provided managers ...

Deposition and Resuspension of Alexandrium fundyen...

Toxins from annual blooms of Alexandrium fundyense accumulate in shellfish; shellfish harvesting closures protect human health, but are economically disruptive. Seed-like cysts produced by A. fundyense accumulate in bottom sediments ...

Early Warning for Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning in t...

This project will help mitigate HAB-related disruptions to highly productive Gulf of Maine shellfisheries with new knowledge, observing technology advances, and enhanced capacity to deliver early warnings and forecasts of ...

Ecology, Integrity and Status of Caribbean Mesopho...

We investigated Puerto Rico’s mesophotic coral ecosystems to better understand them and their relationship to shallower reefs. They are off the southwestern coast at depths of 50–100 m (164–328 ft) ...

Effects and Discovery of Chronic Domoic Acid Expos...

Domoic acid, a naturally occurring marine neurotoxin, threatens the health of marine mammals, seabirds, and humans via severe and long-term yet low-level exposure through the food web. Researchers discovered a ...

Forecasting the Spread and Bioeconomic Impacts of ...

We are developing predictions of the arrival and economic impact of non-native aquatic invasive species to better respond to current invasions and prevent future invasions. We are combining scientific, economic, ...

Implementation of an Operational Model for Predict...

Earlier NOAA-funded research developed models to predict blooms of toxic Alexandrium fundyense. Toxins accumulate in shellfish, causing illness in human consumers, so states must monitor shellfish and ban harvesting when ...

News

Resilient Coastal Cities Need to Know the Five W’s...

There is growing evidence that flood risks in the United States have historically been underestimated, and will disproportionately impact individuals within low-wealth and marginalized communities. New research offers the Los ...

NCCOS Assists Response to Harmful Algal Bloom in t...

Dead sturgeon observed floating during USGS field sampling in South Bay. NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) provided a Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Event Response award of $15,420 ...

Study Finds Community Structure of Mesophotic Cora...

NCCOS-supported researchers documented that mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) at depths of 50 and 70 m in southwest Puerto Rico experienced significant interannual changes in community composition, demonstrating that caution should ...

Study Reviews Causes of Acidification in Large Est...

With ocean acidification threatening the health of aquatic organisms, a study funded by NCCOS, NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program, and the National Science Foundation reviewed a variety of processes that influence ...

Comparing Saginaw Bay and Western Lake Erie for Ha...

MODIS satellite image (undated) of Lake Huron/Saginaw Bay and the Western Lake Erie basin showing cyanobacterial blooms (greenish areas), Credit NASA. Scientists from NCCOS and the University of Maryland collaborated ...

Fishing for Hypoxia

Predicting the Impacts of Climate Change on Seagra...

In a treatise, professor and seagrass ecologist/physiologist Dr. Richard Zimmerman reflects on the history of seagrass ecosystems research and contemplates the future of seagrasses under human disturbance and a changing ...

Research Enables Dungeness Crab Fishermen to Detec...

Florida Event Response Funding Helps Jump-Start Ci...

A relatively small, one-time NCCOS funding contribution to aid the study of red tide off southwest Florida has helped produce an unexpected long-term benefit – the establishment of a citizen ...

Histological techniques for marine bivalve mollusks and crustaceans

During the mid-1950s, massive and widespread oyster mortalities, particularly in the Delaware and Chesapeake Bay areas, served as a stimulus to establish a federal oyster mortality study program. Consequently, Congress appropriated funds to the then Bureau of Commercial Fisheries (BCF) ...
