Identifying Bloom Origins of the Toxic Dinoflagellate Karenia brevis in the Western Gulf of Mexico Using a Spatially Explicit Individual-Based Model

Harmful algal blooms caused by Karenia brevis result in large fish kills, human respiratory irritation, and shellfishing closures in affected areas. Most previous work on bloom formation in the Gulf of Mexico has focused on the west coast of Florida ...

Linking molecular microbial ecology to geochemistry in a coastal hypoxic zone

Multiple environmental mechanisms have been proposed to control bottom water hypoxia (<2 mg O2 L?1) in the northern Gulf of Mexico Louisiana shelf. Near-bottom hypoxia has been attributed to a direct consumption of oxygen through benthic microbial respiration and a ...
