Integrated Ecosystem Modeling of the Causes of Hyp...

The largest low oxygen (hypoxic) zone affecting the United States is in the northern Gulf of Mexico, adjacent to the Mississippi River. This “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico ...

Marine Shellfish Populations Estimated to be at Ri...

A new NCCOS-funded study shows that ocean acidification has the potential to harm wild populations of scallops and clams along the U.S. northeast coast. The rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide ...
