Assessing the Ecological Function of Shipwrecks, A...

Increased calls for enhancing ocean habitats through artificial reefs and proposals for increasing offshore energy development require science to understand the impact and habitat value of these artificial structures on ...

Evaluating Nature-Based Solution Performance

We are evaluating the performance of three types of nature-based solutions: oyster reefs, coral reefs, and wetlands created from dredged sediments. We will examine project sites five or more years ...

Evidence on the Use of Engineered Structures for C...

Amid global declines in coral reefs, restoration practitioners and managers are increasingly considering incorporating engineered structures in restoration. However, information on how engineered structures have been used in coral restoration ...

Synthesizing Evidence on the Performance of Nature...

We are summarizing existing information on how actions working with nature to meet society’s and nature’s needs, called nature-based solutions (NBS), help boost coastal resilience. We aim to collate global ...

Study Calculates Area Covered by Natural vs Artifi...

Figure 1: Underwater images of artificial reefs (A, B) and natural reefs (C, D) on the southeast US continental shelf. (A) Artificial reef created by a ship. (B) Artificial reef ...

Artificial Reef Design and Siting in US Missing Ec...

NCCOS scientists and their partners have outlined a way to make ecological criteria part of the artificial reef planning process in the United States. Planning processes for artificial reefs differ ...

Study Illuminates Patterns in Atlantic Deep-water ...

A recent study has revealed that isolated deep-water habitats with small spatial footprints, like shipwrecks, may host disproportionate abundances of deep-water groupers. Previous research has shown that rocky reefs, artificial ...

Study Demonstrates Benefits of Joint Archeological...

Figure 1. Location of shipwrecks U‐576 and SS Bluefields on North Carolina's continental shelf. Insert in lower right shows multibeam bathymetry of the two shipwrecks, where warmer colors indicate shallower ...

Research Suggests Predators Prefer Artificial over...

NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and partners recently completed two research projects to better understand the relationship between artificial reefs and large predators, like sharks. The team's ...

Explore North Carolina’s Shipwrecks, Marine Life V...

UPDATE: February 24, 2021 The Living Shipwrecks 3D Website has been accepted to the 2021 Esri Federal GIS Conference Map Gallery. Voting for the People’s Choice Award is open now ...

NOAA Study Finds Artificial Reefs Enhance Fish Com...

Structures, such as vessels, concrete pipes, and bridge pieces, are intentionally placed on the seafloor as artificial reefs. These artificial reefs can be effective tools for enhancing fish communities, but ...

Researchers Study Ecological Role of North Carolin...

Shipwrecks and rocky reefs off the coast of North Carolina are home to commercially and recreationally important fish. Scientists with NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science are researching how ...

Underwater Robots Help Scientists Understand How F...

During the ROV dive on the shipwreck W.E. Hutton, the remotely-operated vehicle encountered large predators, such as the sand tiger shark pictured here, as well as other smaller reef fish ...
