Projects

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 ...

Planning for Sustainable Shellfish Aquaculture in ...

Eutrophication is the overabundance of nutrients in a body of water that results in harmful algal blooms, fish kills, and in some cases ecosystem collapse. We are investigating the feasibility ...

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 ...

Shellfish Killers: An Optimized Early Warning Prog...

We are collecting data to understand the impacts of shellfish-killing algae and their toxins on aquaculture farms and wild populations and to develop a warning system for growers and managers ...

Strengthening Early Warning and Forecasts of Domoi...

In the Pacific Northwest (PNW), blooms of Pseudo-nitzschia that produce domoic acid (DA) are a significant human health threat and extremely costly to coastal communities. This project improves early warnings ...

The Columbia River Plume and Harmful Algal Blooms ...

We identified the oceanographic causes and transport routes for the harmful alga Pseudo-nitzschia in the offshore waters of the Pacific Northwest and improved predictability of the arrival of harmful algal ...

Tracking the Extent and Effect of Hypoxia on Comme...

Low oxygen or hypoxic zones have increased in the Pacific Northwest. We are working with Dungeness crab fishermen in Oregon to deploy dissolved oxygen sensors on commercial crab pots to ...

MERHAB Azadinium sampling in Puget Sound and the Washington outer coast. Sampling sites for twice-monthly mussel and SPATT deployment plus weekly water collection from April 2 – Sept 28, 2018.Water ...

HAB Forecast Gives Washington Confidence to Procee...

Last week's NOAA-sponsored harmful algal bloom forecast for the Pacific Northwest gave the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) confidence to proceed with this week's opening of the Washington recreational ...

Record-setting Razor Clam Harvest Aided by Pacific...

Recreational razor clam harvesters in Long Beach, Washington, set a record for one-day digger trips (17,800 diggers) on April 30, 2017. The record number of trips was triggered by the ...

Toxin Sensor off Washington Coast Provides Early W...

Last week, NOAA and their partners deployed an NCCOS-developed sensor for the algal neurotoxin domoic acid on an Environmental Sample Processor (ESP) off the Washington coast. The processor, known as ...

NCCOS Joins USGS in Congressional Briefing on Harm...

On April 4, a Congressional Briefing held in Washington, DC, focused on harmful algal blooms (HABs) and their increasing impacts on coastal, Great Lakes, and inland communities and economies. NCCOS's ...

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 ...

Winners and Losers in the California Current under...

A NOAA-supported study projects that Dungeness crab and some commercial finfish species living on the sea floor may decline in future years due to increased ocean acidification in the California ...

Risk of Toxic Shellfish on West Coast Increases wi...

High levels of domoic acid, a shellfish toxin, are correlated with warmer ocean temperatures offshore of Oregon and Washington. An NCCOS-supported research team led by scientists from Oregon State University, ...

First Compendium on Deep-water Algae of Puerto Ric...

A new taxonomic publication describes the relatively unknown algal flora of mesophotic coral ecosystems in Puerto Rico. Theseecosystems are characterized by the presence of light-dependent corals and associated communities found ...

Salish Sea Activity Book

An activity book designed to introduce elementary school children to the animal, plant life and ecology of the Salish Sea ...

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 ...
