Developing Spatial Products for the Kachemak Bay H...

We are developing a web-based, mapping application that will provide the public access to geospatial products for the shoreline, intertidal, and subtidal areas of Kachemak Bay, Alaska. The application will ...

Development of Satellite-derived Bathymetry and Be...

We developed satellite-derived bathymetry and benthic habitat and hydrodynamic roughness maps for Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. These products are supporting a modelling effort led by ...

Mapping the Benthic Habitat Resources of Kachemak ...

There are no subtidal benthic habitat maps of Kachemak Bay, Alaska, to support essential fish habitat and place-based management needs. In response, we are developing benthic habitat maps for the ...

Tool to Forecast the Effect of Waves on Waterbodie...

We created a tool to help coastal community managers, resource managers, and biologists estimate the wave impact potential to a given area. Wave forms included in the tool range from ...

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 ...

New wave forecasting tool - News-Times: News

Local scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration lab on Pivers Island are developing a model to forecast wave activity in Albemarle and Pamlico sounds. Dr. Mark Fonseca, chief ...


Maps, Tools & Applications

NCCOS scientists have developed an easy-to-use numerical wave exposure model (WEMo) that uses linear wave theory to calculate actual wave height and derived wave energy while taking into consideration wind generation and local water depth characteristics such as shoaling and dissipation from breaking waves. WEMo also provides predictions of seafloor sediment movement.

Understanding differential patterns in coral reef recovery: chronic hydrodynamic disturbance as a limiting mechanism for coral colonization

Coral reefs are subject to numerous physical disturbances, and post-disturbance coral recovery potential depends on subsequent re-colonization of impacted habitat. We examined divergent recovery trajectories at 2 proximal reefs disturbed by ship groundings that resulted in clearly delineated areas of ...

WEMo (Wave Exposure Model): Formulation, Procedures and Validation

This report describes the working of National Centers for Coastal Ocean Service (NCCOS) Wave Exposure Model (WEMo) capable of predicting the exposure of a site in estuarine and closed water to local wind generated waves. WEMo works in two different ...
