Long-term monitoring of ecological conditions in Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary: soft-bottom benthic assemblages and contaminant levels in sediments and biota (2000, 2005, and 2012/13)

Since April 2000, NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) have been engaged in a collaborative partnership to augment the management of National Marine Sanctuaries (NMS) through increased scientific understanding of ...

Long-term trends in Chesapeake Bay seasonal hypoxia, stratification, and nutrient loading

A previously observed shift in the relationship between Chesapeake Bay hypoxia and nitrogen loading has pressing implications on the efficacy of nutrient management. Detailed temporal analyses of long-term hypoxia, nitrogen loads, and stratification were conducted to reveal different within-summer trends ...
