EcoGIS: Tools for Ecosystem-based Fisheries Manage...

The EcoGIS project was launched to determine how geographic information systems (GIS) technology, marine data, and custom analysis tools could be leveraged to promote fishery management strategies based on the ...

ECOHAB: GOMTOX: Dynamics of Alexandrium fundyense ...

Extensive shellfish resources in the Gulf of Maine are frequently contaminated with toxins produced by the red tide dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense. Shellfish harvesting must be closed to protect public health ...

Ecological Analysis Used to Support New York State...

We collaborated with the state of New York to collect and interpret ecological information needed to plan the location of wind farms and other ocean projects. The scope of our ...

Ecological Characterization of Stellwagen Bank Nat...

We provided an ecological and oceanographic profile of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and Gulf of Maine region, including analysis of pollution levels. The project was designed to help ...

Global Ocean Ecosystems Dynamics (GLOBEC) Northwes...

Georges Bank, located off Cape Cod has long supported important commercial fisheries. From 1996 to 2008, NCCOS partnered with the National Science Foundation supporting the Global Ocean Ecosystems Dynamics Program ...

HABON-NE, An Adaptive Observing Network for Real-T...

New England coastal waters have long been impacted by Alexandrium, a species that causes paralytic shellfish poisoning. Other species have recently emerged in the Gulf of Maine, including Pseudo-nitzschia and ...

Implementation of an Operational Model for Predict...

Earlier NOAA-funded research developed models to predict blooms of toxic Alexandrium fundyense. Toxins accumulate in shellfish, causing illness in human consumers, so states must monitor shellfish and ban harvesting when ...

Improving the Gulf of Maine HAB Forecast with Envi...

Toxic algal blooms pose a serious health risk and often disrupt valuable regional shellfisheries. Eating seafood tainted with algal toxins can sicken or even kill people. We are pioneering use ...

Low to Moderate Bloom Predicted for Gulf of Maine ...

Researchers with NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are predicting a low to moderate red tide for the Gulf of Maine this summer, ...

New Study Suggests Marsh Models Require Mucking Th...

A NOAA funded study published in the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing indicates that models that predict future coastal marsh conditions under sea ...

Gulf of Maine Cyst Sampling Cruise Sets Stage for ...

Sharing Advances in Performance and Affordability ...

NCCOS funded improvements made to an in situ robotic biological sensing system, called the Environmental Sample Processor, are being shared at three major ocean science conferences in the fall of ...

NOAA Scientists Help Define Best Management Practi...

On September 10-11, 2019, Dr. Suzanne Bricker (NCCOS) and Dr. Julie Rose (NMFS) led part of a workshop that explored ways to promote and implement the use of oyster habitats ...

Small Bloom Predicted for Gulf of Maine Red Tide i...

Researchers with NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are predicting a small, red tide for the Gulf of Maine this summer, continuing the ...

NCCOS Participates in Gulf of Maine HAB Stakeholde...

On March 26, 2019, the annual Gulf of Maine (GOM) Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Meeting took place in Portland, Maine. ESP-chris deployed off Portsmouth, NH. ESPs are being used for ...

Researchers Project Fate of Scallop Fishery Under ...

NCCOS-funded researchers have published a paper that describes possible futures of the New England scallop fishery under a suite of climate, economic, biological, and management scenarios. The study highlights the ...

Data & Publications

Diversity and dynamics of a widespread bloom of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense

Historically, cosmopolitan phytoplankton species were presumed to represent largely unstructured populations. However, the recent development of molecular tools to examine genetic diversity have revealed differences in phytoplankton taxa across geographic scales and provided insight into the physiology and ecology of ...

Does the fall phytoplankton bloom control recruitment of Georges Bank haddock, Melanogrammus aeglefinus, through parental condition?

In 2003, the Georges Bank stock of haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) experienced the largest recruitment event recorded during its assessed history. Several hypotheses have been advanced to explain recruitment variability in this much-scrutinized stock, including variability in the retention of eggs ...

Drifter Observations of the Gulf of Maine Coastal Current

Two-hundred and twenty seven satellite-tracked drifters were deployed in the Gulf of Maine (GoM) from 1988 to 2007, primarily during spring and summer. The archive of tracks includes over 100,000 km logged thus far. Statistics such as transit times, mean ...

Dynamics of a mesoscale eddy off Cape Ann, Massachusetts in May 2005

Observations and numerical modeling indicate that a mesoscale anti-cyclonic eddy formed south of Cape Ann at the northern entrance of Massachusetts Bay (MB) during May 2005, when large river discharges in the western Gulf of Maine and two strong Nor'easters ...

Ecological condition of coastal ocean waters along the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Bight: 2006

This document presents the results of an assessment of ecological condition and potential stressor impacts in coastal-ocean waters of the mid-Atlantic Bight (MAB), along the eastern U.S. continental shelf from Cape Cod, MA to Cape Hatteras, NC, based on sampling ...

Ecological condition of coastal ocean waters within Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary: 2008

This document presents the results of an assessment of ecological condition and potential stressor impacts in coastal-ocean waters of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (SBNMS), based on sampling conducted in June 2008. The project was a collaborative effort by ...

Effects of inorganic and organic nitrogen and phosphorus on the growth and toxicity of two Alexandrium species from Hong Kong

The effects of three nitrogen (N) and two phosphorus (P) inorganic and organic forms on the growth, toxin content and composition, toxin production, and chemical composition of Alexandrium catenella and Alexandrium tamarense isolated from coastal waters of Hong Kong were ...

Environmental controls, oceanography and population dynamics of pathogens and harmful algal blooms: Connecting sources to human exposure

Coupled physical-biological models are capable of linking the complex interactions between environmental factors and physical hydrodynamics to simulate the growth, toxicity and transport of infectious pathogens and harmful algal blooms (HABs). Such simulations can be used to assess and predict ...

Environmental Monitors on Lobster Traps (eMOLT): long-term observations of New England's bottom-water temperatures

Nearly one hundred New England lobstermen have installed temperature sensors on their traps to record hourly values at fixed locations since 2001. These moorings are distributed primarily along the shelf edge in the northern Mid-Atlantic Bight and along the entire ...

Environmental toxicology data collected by the National Status and Trends Program for monitoring contaminants in coastal United States marine water bodies from 01 Jan 1960 to 05 May 2010 (NODC Accession 0074376)

The National Status and Trends Program is comprised of three nationwide programs: Benthic Surveillance, Mussel Watch, and Bioeffects. These programs are in place to observe estuarine and coastal waters nationwide to describe the current status and detect changes in the ...
