Data & Publications

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 ...

Integrated Assessment of Ecosystem Condition and Stressor Impacts in Submerged Habitats of the Guana Tolomato Matanzas (GTM) National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR)

The Guana Tolomato Matanzas reserve is one of 28 National Estuarine Research Reserves (GTMNERR) encompassing approximately 73,300 acres of salt marsh and mangrove tidal wetlands, oyster bars, estuarine lagoons, upland areas, and offshore ocean waters along the northeastern coast of ...

Integrated Assessment on Hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, Topic 1 Report: Characterization of Hypoxia

As part of a process of considering options for responding to hypoxia, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formed the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force during the fall of 1997, and asked the White House Office of ...

Integrated Assessment on Hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, Topic 2 Report: Ecological and Economic Consequences of Hypoxia

As part of a process of considering options for responding to hypoxia, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formed the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force during the fall of 1997, and asked the White House Office of ...

Integrated Assessment on Hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, Topic 3 Report: Flux and Sources of Nutrients in the Mississippi-Atchafalaya River Basin

As part of a process of considering options for responding to hypoxia, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formed the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force during the fall of 1997, and asked the White House Office of ...

Integrated Assessment on Hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, Topic 4 Report: Effects of Reducing Nutrient Loads to Surface Waters within the Mississippi River Basin and the Gulf of Mexico

As part of a process of considering options for responding to hypoxia, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) formed the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force during the fall of 1997, and asked the White House Office of ...

Interannual Variation in Stratification over the Texas–Louisiana Continental Shelf and Effects on Seasonal Hypoxia

A numerical dye is used to track freshwater released in May and June from the Mississippi and Atchafalaya rivers using a hydrodynamic model. These months are chosen because discharge and nutrient load in May and June is significantly correlated with ...

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 ...
