Identifying Coastal Vulnerabilities in Chesapeake ...

Post-storm flooding in Oxford, MD, within the project area. Credit: NOAA Scientists with NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science just completed a vulnerability assessment of the Choptank River Complex, ...

A Primer to Living Shorelines Published

A synthesis of recent thinking and results from practitioners and researchers of Living Shorelines just hit the stands. " Living Shorelines: The Science and Management of Nature-Based Coastal Protection," details ...

Hardened Shorelines Decrease Small Fish and Invert...

New NCCOS-sponsored research shows that shoreline hardening has mostly negative effects on estuarine animals. This is evident both at a local scale directly next to a hardened shoreline and at ...

2016 Chesapeake Bay Hypoxia Forecast is Close to M...

As predicted by an earlier forecast sponsored by NCCOS, dissolved oxygen conditions in Maryland's portion of the Chesapeake Bay main channel continued to be average for most of the summer ...

Panel Releases First Recommendations on Oyster Aqu...

This week the Chesapeake Bay Program and its partners approved the Oyster Best Management Practices Expert Panel's first recommendations on specific oyster aquaculture practices that remove excess nitrogen and phosphorus ...

The role of winter-spring wind and other factors controlling summer hypoxia in Chesapeake Bay

We examined the processes influencing summer hypoxia in the mainstem portion of Chesapeake Bay. The analysis was based on the Chesapeake Bay Monitoring Program data collected between 1985 and 2007. Self-organizing map (SOM) analysis indicates that bottom water dissolved oxygen ...

Two new karlotoxins found in Karlodinium veneficum (strain GM2) from the East China Sea

The dinoflagellate Karlodinium veneficum is a harmful algal bloom species with a worldwide distribution. This small athecate dinoflagellate makes a family of polyketide toxins that are hemolytic, cytotoxic and ichthyotoxic. The first chemical structure for karlotoxins from East China Sea ...

Using Multiple Watershed Models to Predict Water, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus Discharges to the Patuxent Estuary

We analyzed an ensemble of watershed models that predict flow, nitrogen, and phosphorus discharges. The models differed in scope and complexity and used different input data, but all had been applied to evaluate human impacts on discharges to the Patuxent ...

Variability of biogeochemical processes and physical transport in a partially stratified estuary: a box-modeling analysis

Regional, seasonal, and interannual variations of freshwater inputs, biogeochemical transformations, and pelagic-benthic interactions were examined in the Patuxent River estuary. Monthly rates of net biogeochemical production (or consumption) and physical transport of carbon, oxygen, and nutrients were calculated for 6 ...

Wind-driven lateral circulation in a stratified estuary and its effects on the along-channel flow

In the stratified rotating estuary of Chesapeake Bay, the Ekman transport drives a counterclockwise lateral circulation under down?estuary winds and a clockwise lateral circulation under up?estuary winds (looking into estuary). The clockwise circulation is about twice as strong as the ...
