Bottlenose Dolphin Blood Gene Expression May Be Used to Assess Health

NCCOS scientists recently described the blood transcriptome of bottlenose dolphins with collaborators at Dolphin Quest in Hawaii. This study, published in BMC Genomics, is the first transcriptome-wide analysis of bottlenose dolphin blood and is a fundamental step in establishing reference data needed for future applications in health and exposure assessment. Because gene expression plays a crucial […]

Meeting Challenges in Estuarine and Coastal Ecosystem Science

Along with individual stressor-based research projects, NCCOS undertakes a broader ecosystem approach using larger, multidisciplinary research projects. A recent essay authored in part by NCCOS sponsored scientists gives perspectives on challenges and paths for advancing estuarine science; NCCOS research strives to meet these challenges. Five major research challenges were identified: (1) Maintaining and improving spatially distributed time-series datasets; […]

NOAA Interns Support NCCOS Research in Choptank Habitat Focus Area

Five NOAA interns joined NCCOS scientists and partners in a demanding week-long field survey to groundtruth high resolution WorldView satellite imagery of wetlands in the Choptank Habitat Focus Area on June 20-24, 2016. Groundtruthing allows satellite image data to be related to real features on the ground, enables calibration of remote-sensing data, and aids in the […]

Vegetation Surveys Validate Satellite Imagery in Choptank River Watershed

Field surveys of wetland habitats were conducted in the Choptank watershed on June 20-24, 2016 by NCCOS scientists, partners, students, and interns to groundtruth high-resolution WorldView satellite imagery of the watershed acquired in 2015. Analysis of vegetation communities will enable production of mapping products of wetlands in NOAA’s Choptank Habitat Focus Area. These data provide a […]
