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 ...

NCCOS Scientist Receives Prestigious Award

Dr. William Sunda will be awarded the elite honor of fellow in the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry. The award will be presented in June at the ...

Programmed Cell Death and the Decline of Harmful A...

Programmed cell death, or self-induced cell mortality, is the subject of increasing attention and research efforts. All phytoplankton blooms decline for a variety of reasons - nutrient depletion, zooplankton grazing, ...

Prominent Human Health Impacts from Several Marine Microbes: History, Ecology, and Public Health Implications

This paper overviews several examples of important public health impacts by marine microbes and directs readers to the extensive literature germane to these maladies. These examples include three types of dinoflagellates (Gambierdiscus spp., Karenia brevis, and Alexandrium fundyense), BMAA-producing cyanobacteria, ...

Skill assessment for coupled biological/physical models of marine systems

Simulation models coupling physics to biological processes in the ocean are central to many current programs. Ocean physical models have approached a high level of sophistication; the physical relationships are canonical, and modern computational technology for fluid mechanics has advanced ...

Skill Assessment for Coupled Biological/Physical Models of Marine Systems

Coupled biological/physical models of marine systems serve many purposes including the synthesis of information, hypothesis generation, and as a tool for numerical experimentation. However, marine system models are increasingly used for prediction to support high-stakes decision-making. In such applications it ...

Suppression of the 2010 Alexandrium fundyense bloom by changes in physical, biological, and chemical properties of the Gulf of Maine

For the period 2005–2009, the abundance of resting cysts in bottom sediments from the preceding autumn was a first-order predictor of the overall severity of spring–summer blooms of Alexandrium fundyense in the western Gulf of Maine and southern New England ...

The globally distributed genus Alexandrium: Multifaceted roles in marine ecosystems and impacts on human health

The dinoflagellate genus Alexandrium is one of the major harmful algal bloom (HAB) genera with respect to the diversity, magnitude and consequences of blooms. The ability of Alexandrium to colonize multiple habitats and to persist over large regions through time ...

The influence of anthropogenic nitrogen loading and meteorological conditions on the dynamics and toxicity of Alexandrium fundyense blooms in a New York (USA) estuary

The goal of this two-year study was to explore the role of nutrients and climatic conditions in promoting reoccurring Alexandrium fundyense blooms in the Northport-Huntington Bay complex, NY, USA. A bloom in 2007 was short and small (3 weeks, 103 ...

Zooplankton community grazing impact on a bloom of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine

Shipboard grazing experiments were conducted in the Gulf of Maine and on Georges Bank during of June 2006 to estimate zooplankton community grazing impact on a natural bloom of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense. Surface seawater samples containing natural populations ...
