Funded by NOAA’s Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), the goal of this project is to quantify the extent of chemical contamination in sediments and fish in Cocos Lagoon, Guam. Significant ... Read More
We assessed the condition of the St. Thomas East End Reserves, establishing a baseline from which we can evaluate the effectiveness of restoration activities. This is the first reserve-wide integrated ... Read More
Along with colleagues from the U.S. Geological Survey and Virginia Polytechnic Institute, we placed passive water samplers in the Shenandoah River in Virginia to determine which chemicals may be associated ... Read More
NCCOS scientists recently traveled to Guam for a project funded by NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), to help quantify chemical contamination in Cocos Lagoon, located at the southern tip ... Read More
For sediment sampling in Cocos Lagoon, we used what is known as a 'stratified -random design.' Basically, a series of strata (layers) were developed in consultation with local partners, and ... Read More
The Global Partnership on Nutrient Management (GPNM), a group comprised of a variety of agencies and governments, promotes nutrient management for food safety and natural resource conservation. Representatives from the ... Read More
This report is the second in a series from a project to assess land-based sources of pollution (LBSP) and effects in the St. Thomas East End Reserves (STEER) in St. Thomas, USVI, and is the result of a collaborative effort ... Read More
This report contains a chemical and biological characterization of sediments from the St. Thomas East End Reserves (STEER) in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). The STEER Management Plan (published in 2011) identified chemical contaminants and habitat loss as high ... Read More
As part of the joint effort between the US Virgin Islands Department of Planning and Natural Resources and the NOAA Centers for Coastal and Ocean Science (NCCOS), to conduct a Reserves-wide impact assessment of land-based sources of pollution and effects ... Read More
This is the fifth report from a project to assess land-based sources of pollution (LSBPs) and their effects, and to characterize the biological community with the St. Thomas East End Reserves (Steer) in St. Thomas, USVI. Here we summarize the ... Read More
The St. Thomas East End Reserves, or STEER, is a collection of Marine Reserves and Wildlife Sanctuaries (MRWS) located on the southeastern end of the island of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. With an area of approximately 9.6 km2 , ... Read More
This report describes the development and assessment of shallow (0-40 m) benthic habitat maps for Fish Bay, Coral Bay and the St. Thomas East End Reserve (STEER) in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The objective of this effort, conducted by NOAA's ... Read More
Located at the southeastern end of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), the St. Thomas East End Reserves (STEER) is a collection of several existing protected areas, including Cas Cay/Mangrove Lagoon, St. James, and Compass Point Salt Pond Marine Reserves ... Read More
Pollution in the marine environment has the potential to negatively impact ecosystem health, including adverse effects on fisheries species. This can occur through direct impacts, food web effects and habitat degradation. Vieques is an island municipality of the Commonwealth of ... Read More
The goal of this pilot project was to assess the presence of a number of commonly prescribed human use pharmaceuticals in three coastal areas of the U.S. Water samples were collected in conjunction with three NOAA monitoring/research projects to assess ... Read More
This dataset provides valuable baseline data on sediment chemical contamination for the St. Thomas East End Reserve (STEER), U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). From 2010-2012, NOAA scientists collected samples as part of a larger, long-term monitoring National Status and Trends Program ... Read More
