Investigating Domoic Acid Biosynthesis and Toxic B...

The marine diatom Pseudo-nitzschia (PN) produces domoic acid (DA), a neurotoxin that has caused widespread human poisoning along the northeast and northwest coasts of the contiguous U.S. Researchers have investigated ...

Mapping and Analysis of West Coast Groundfish

We are developing groundfish distribution maps to support fisheries management and conservation. The maps are based on a compilation and analysis of fish observations and environmental data, and innovative spatial ...

Marine Bird Spatial Distributions on the Pacific O...

Currently, there is a gap in useable information regarding marine bird distributions on the U.S. Pacific Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). We are synthesizing available high-quality, at-sea data to produce high-resolution, ...

Ocean Acidification in the California Current: Pre...

We are supporting the development of a management model to predict impacts of ocean acidification on food webs and the fishing economy in the California Current. The model will project ...

Oregon Kelp Forest Survey

This study will perform a coast-wide survey of the extent and status of kelp forests in Oregon.  Why We Care Kelp are seaweed, known as the ‘trees of the sea’, ...

Prioritizing Areas for Future Seafloor Mapping, Re...

We developed a spatial framework and online application to identify priorities for seafloor mapping and visual surveys along the U.S. west CONUS coast (WCC), off California, Oregon and Washington. This ...

Resident Perceptions of Offshore Wind Energy Devel...

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) oversees development of U.S. offshore renewable energy projects on submerged lands called the Outer Continental Shelf. BOEM has identified two areas on the ...

Predicting the Socioeconomic Impacts of Shoreline ...

The tradeoffs between protection of private property and management of the public commons along coastlines are a source of increasing conflict given the threats posed by erosion and sea-level rise ...

Podcast Explores Economics of Natural vs Armored S...

Some oceanfront landowners in Neskowin, Oregon, have chosen to use rock revetments, or rip-rap, to protect their properties from erosion. Their decision has implications for property values, public access, and ...

Linking Chlorophyll Concentration and Wind Pattern...

The California Current System (CCS) is a highly productive region because of wind driven upwelling which supplies nutrients to the euphotic zone. Few studies have compared upwelling and algae blooms ...

Research Enables Dungeness Crab Fishermen to Detec...

Effects of Sea Level Rise Program Awards $2.2 Mill...

NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) is allocating over $2.2M in Fiscal Year 2020 to fund coastal resilience research across the nation. Approximately $589K will cover the first ...

Oxygen Loss and Ecosystem Impacts in the Californi...

Aerobic habitat compression for anchovy. Aerobic habitat compression in 2100 compared to 2000. Areas in red will lose the most habitat suitable for anchovy. Circles are anchovy observations, with larger ...

Shoreline Armoring Along Oregon Coast Lowers Value...

Oceanfront landowners in Neskowin, Oregon, have chosen to use rock revetments, or rip-rap, to protect their properties from erosion. Their decision has implications for property values, public access, and recreation ...

Smaller, More User-friendly Sensor Developed to De...

NCCOS-supported scientists and engineers have developed a smaller and more user-friendly low cost sensor that fishermen can use to detect and track the onset of low oxygen events off the ...

Data & Publications

Prioritizing Areas for Future Seafloor Mapping, Research, and Exploration Offshore of California, Oregon, and Washington

Spatial information about the seafloor is critical for decision-making by marine science, management and tribal organizations. While this type of information is important, its collection is expensive, time consuming and logistically intensive. Developing a network of partners and coordinating data ...

Risks of ocean acidification in the California Current food web and fisheries: ecosystem model projections

The benefits and ecosystem services that humans derive from the oceans are threatened by numerous global change stressors, one of which is ocean acidification. Here, we describe the effects of ocean acidification on an upwelling system that already experiences inherently ...

Seasonal and interannual oxygen variability on the Washington and Oregon continental shelves

The coastal waters of the northern portion of the California Current System experience a seasonal decline in oxygen concentrations and hypoxia over the summer upwelling season that results in negative impacts on habitat for many organisms. Using a regional model ...

Seasonal Cross-Shelf Flow Structure, Upwelling Relaxation, and the Alongshelf Pressure Gradient in the Northern California Current System

Moored observations are used to investigate the seasonal change in vertical structure of the cross-shelf circulation at a midshelf location in the northern California Current System. A streamwise–normal coordinate system is employed to eliminate meander- and eddy-induced biases in the ...
