Predicting Impacts of Sea Level Rise in the Northe...

We are assessing the impacts of sea level rise and coastal storms on marshes and oyster habitats in the northern Gulf of Mexico through the development of predictive models that ...

Stormwater Runoff in Coastal Watersheds: Predictin...

We developed a stormwater runoff modeling system to predict the impacts of development and climate change on stormwater runoff in small coastal watersheds. The model quantifies runoff using climate change ...

Modeling Coastal Hypoxia: NCCOS Sponsored Research...

A new book highlights NCCOS sponsored hypoxia modeling. It contains original research on numerical simulations of the patterns, controls, and effects of dissolved oxygen dynamics. The book, Modeling Coastal Hypoxia, ...

Gulf of Mexico ‘Dead Zone’ Largest Ever Measured

Scientists have determined this year’s Gulf of Mexico “dead zone,” an area of low oxygen that can kill fish and marine life, is 8,776 square miles, an area about the ...

Hypoxia Leads to Atlantic Croaker Decline in Gulf ...

Distribution of bottom-water dissolved oxygen July 28-August 3, 2015 (west of the Mississippi River delta). Black line indicates dissolved oxygen level of 2 mg/L. (Data: Nancy R. Rabalais, LUMCON, and ...

$16.7 Million Awarded for Gulf of Mexico Research

To support efforts to protect fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced that NOAA has issued awards totaling of $16.7 million from its RESTORE ...

Southeast Deep Coral Initiative: NOAA Multi-Year E...

A new NOAA report outlines the objectives and activities of the Southeast Deep Coral Initiative (SEDCI). The initiative is a coordinated, cross-line office effort that includes partners from NOAA Fisheries, ...

A Primer to Living Shorelines Published

A synthesis of recent thinking and results from practitioners and researchers of Living Shorelines just hit the stands. " Living Shorelines: The Science and Management of Nature-Based Coastal Protection," details ...

National Coastal Condition Report IV

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

NCCOS Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise in the Northern Gulf of Mexico (EESLR-NGOM): Mean High Water and Salt Marsh Productivity (Hydro-MEM) (NCEI Accession 0170338)

This dataset contains salt marsh productivity projections under different sea level rise scenarios for the northern Gulf of Mexico (Florida panhandle, Alabama, and Mississippi) using a coupled hydrodynamic-marsh model called Hydro-MEM (Alizad et al. 2016a and 2016b). The modeled outputs ...

NCCOS Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise in the Northern Gulf of Mexico (EESLR-NGOM): Simulated Return Period Stillwater Elevation (NCEI Accession 0170340)

This dataset comprises stillwater storm surge projections for 2100 for the northern Gulf of Mexico (Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle) using a high-resolution coupled SWAN+ADCIRC model (Bilskie et al., 2016a). These results are from a predictive model in a ...

NCCOS Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise in the Northern Gulf of Mexico (EESLR-NGOM): Simulated Storm Surge (NCEI Accession 0170339)

This dataset contains simulated storm surge results for the northern Gulf of Mexico (Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle) using a high-resolution SWAN+ADCIRC model (Bilskie, 2016b). The modeling approach incorporates dynamic processes including salt marsh evolution, shoreline and dune height ...

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 ...

Suspended sediment projections in Apalachicola Bay in response to altered river flow and sediment loads under climate change and sea level rise

Suspended sediments, or total suspended solids (TSS), are an important factor for oyster habitat. While high concentrations of suspended sediments can cause a reduction of oyster density, some level of suspended sediment is required to supply oysters with necessary nutrients ...

Terrain-driven unstructured mesh development through semi-automatic vertical feature extraction

A semi-automated vertical feature terrain extraction algorithm is described and applied to a two-dimensional, depth-integrated, shallow water equation inundation model. The extracted features describe what are commonly sub-mesh scale elevation details (ridge and valleys), which may be ignored in standard ...

The dynamic effects of sea level rise on low-gradient coastal landscapes: A review

Coastal responses to sea level rise (SLR) include inundation of wetlands, increased shoreline erosion, and increased flooding during storm events. Hydrodynamic parameters such as tidal ranges, tidal prisms, tidal asymmetries, increased flooding depths and inundation extents during storm events respond ...

The response of runoff and sediment loading in the Apalachicola River, Florida to climate and land use land cover change

The response of runoff and sediment loading in the Apalachicola River under projected climate change scenarios and land use land cover (LULC) change is evaluated. A hydrologic model using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool was developed for the Apalachicola ...

Tidal hydrodynamics under future sea level rise and coastal morphology in the Northern Gulf of Mexico

This study examines the integrated influence of sea level rise (SLR) and future morphology on tidal hydrodynamics along the Northern Gulf of Mexico (NGOM) coast including seven embayments and three ecologically and economically significant estuaries. A large-domain hydrodynamic model was ...
