The Environmental Sample Processor – Making it Mor...

We are re-engineering the design of the Environmental Sample Processor (ESP), one of the first available in-water sensors to measure harmful algae, their toxins, and other parameters in near real-time ...

Tool to Forecast the Effect of Waves on Waterbodie...

We created a tool to help coastal community managers, resource managers, and biologists estimate the wave impact potential to a given area. Wave forms included in the tool range from ...

Towards a Predictive Understanding of Our Ecosyste...

Cyanobacteria blooms and toxin production are an urgent contemporary problem in the US and worldwide. Water quality models are important tools for managing these problems, but currently the utility of ...

Validation of a Triplex Test for Saxitoxin, Domoic...

We will evaluate an assay that simultaneously detects paralytic shellfish poisoning, amnesic shellfish poisoning, and diarrhetic shellfish poisoning toxins in mussels.  Why We Care Shellfish aquaculture is a large and ...

NCCOS Sponsors 20 New Research Projects

NCCOS awarded nearly $4.5 million in new research grants while maintaining sponsorship of 42 continuing projects during 2015 for a total of $8.2 million in funding for innovative research. All ...

The Future of Algae Bloom Monitoring Technology

Technology developed with NCCOS funding is rapidly advancing harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring capabilities nationwide. These cutting edge detection tools are now commercially available and transitioning them to sustained management ...

Gulf of Mexico Dead Zone Larger than Predicted Aft...

Distribution of bottom-water dissolved oxygen July 28-August 3, 2015 west of the Mississippi River delta. The black line indicates dissolved oxygen levels of less than two miligrams per liter. Credit: ...

Investigating Diamondback Terrapin Die-Offs in New...

From late April into May 2015 hundreds of diamondback terrapin turtles ( Malaclemys terrapin) began dying and washing up on beaches in the western part of Long Island, New York ...

NCCOS Prepares Toxin Sensor for Gulf of Maine Red ...

An NCCOS technical expert completed critical calibrations of the paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxin sensor for an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) platform stationed at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Laboratory ...

NOAA Shepherds Transition of Gulf of Maine Harmful...

NOAA and partners are working to transition a harmful algal bloom (HAB) model forAlexandrium fundyensein the Gulf of Maine (GoM) into a NOAA operational forecast system (OFS), which would help ...

Ocean Acidification Concerns, Information to be Ai...

The Northeast Coastal Acidification Network (NECAN) is planning an 'Ocean and Coastal Acidification Stakeholder Workshop' for December 10, 2014 at the Darling Marine Center in Walpole, Maine. As a member ...

Marsh Hydrology Model Supports Hurricane Sandy Res...

In support of restoration and resilience of marshes impacted by Hurricane Sandy, the U.S. Department of Interior chose an NCCOS-supported forecast model to predict marsh ecology and hydrology related to ...

Tenacity of Brown Tides Linked to Genetic Flexibil...

The genetic flexibility of Aureococcus anophagefferens, the harmful alga responsible for "brown tides" off Long Island, allows it to thrive in conditions other algae cannot tolerate. NCCOS-sponsored scientists assessed this ...

Gulf of Maine Red Tide Forecast Suggests Modest Bl...

A team of NOAA and academic researchers led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has issued a seasonal red tide forecast for the Gulf of Maine as part of ...

Models of harmful algal blooms: Conceptual, empirical, and numerical approaches

In June 2009, a workshop was convened under the auspices of the Global Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (GEOHAB) program to develop strategies for using observations and models to address the science questions articulated in the Open Science ...

Models: Tools for synthesis in international oceanographic research programs

Through its promotion of coordinated international research programs, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) has facilitated major progress on some of the most challenging problems in oceanography. Issues of global significance—such as general ocean circulation, the carbon cycle, the structure and ...

National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) long-term monitoring: Regional Ecological Assessments and National Benthic Inventory (NCEI Accession 0202842)

The NCCOS Regional Ecological Assessments (REA) and NOAA National Benthic Inventory (NBI) include observations of water quality, sediment quality, fish and shellfish tissue chemical contaminants, and benthic infaunal abundance obtained from studies conducted since 1991 by NOAA and partnering institutions ...

National Coastal Condition Report IV

This document contains the results and analysis from the fourth national coastal assessment, published in 2012 ...

NCCOS Assessment: Modeling At-Sea Density of Marine Birds to Support Atlantic Marine Renewable Energy Planning (NCEI Accession 0176682)

This dataset provides seasonal spatial rasters of median predicted long-term (1978-2016) relative density of 47 marine bird species throughout the US Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and adjacent waters at a 2-km spatial resolution. Three indications of the uncertainty associated ...

NCCOS Long-term Monitoring Project: Regional Ecological Assessments and National Benthic Inventory

NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) works in partnership with other federal agencies and coastal states to conduct assessments of ecological condition and potential stressor impacts throughout our Nation’s estuaries, coastal-ocean waters, and NOAA protected areas; carry out ...

Outbreeding lethality between toxic Group I and nontoxic Group III Alexandrium tamarense spp. isolates: predominance of heterotypic encystment and implications for mating interactions and biogeography

We report the zygotic encystment of geographically dispersed isolates in the dinoflagellate species complex Alexandrium tamarense, in particular, successful mating of toxic Group I and nontoxic Group III isolates. However, hypnozygotes produced in Group I/III co-cultures complete no more than ...

Parameter estimation using an ensemble smoother: the effect of the circulation in biological estimation

An ensemble smoother is used to estimate the initial conditions and mortality rates for a spatially explicit model of Alexandrium fundyense. The data assimilation procedure is effective at reducing model-data misfit in this strong constraint problem formulation. The skill of ...

Pathways between primary production and fisheries yields of large marine ecosystems

The shift in marine resource management from a compartmentalized approach of dealing with resources on a species basis to an approach based on management of spatially defined ecosystems requires an accurate accounting of energy flow. The flow of energy from ...

Planktonic microbes in the Gulf of Maine area

In the Gulf of Maine area (GoMA), as elsewhere in the ocean, the organisms of greatest numerical abundance are microbes. Viruses in GoMA are largely cyanophages and bacteriophages, including podoviruses which lack tails. There is also evidence of Mimivirus and ...
