Projects

A Mechanism Based Intervention for Brevetoxin Indu...

The Florida manatee inhabits environments in which blooms of the toxic dinoflagellate, Karenia brevis, frequently occur. K. brevis produces brevetoxins, that result in fish kills, contamination of shellfish, and respiratory ...

Climate Change and Acidification Impacts on Cyanob...

The Great Lakes experience recurrent toxin-producing cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (cHABs). While cHAB events have been well-studied in recent years, little attention has been given to acidification in the Great ...

Coastal Acidification and Harmful Algal Blooms in ...

This project aims to determine how harmful algal blooms (HABs) in New York waters respond to coastal acidification, how current and future climate change conditions will affect these HABs, and ...

Developing a Machine Learning-Based, High Resoluti...

Blooms of Alexandrium occur in the Gulf of Maine each year and produce toxins that can accumulate in shellfish, causing Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning. Regional management agencies conduct rigorous monitoring to ...

Do Harmful Algal Bloom Migrations Across Carbonate...

This project will evaluate whether harmful algal bloom (HAB) species may have a competitive advantage over other phytoplankton in response to coastal acidification and climate changes occurring in northeast US ...

Expanding the Southeast Alaska Tribal Ocean Resear...

This project expands existing harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring conducted by the Sitka Tribe of Alaska Environmental Research Laboratory (STAERL) to include testing shellfish for domoic acid and diarrhetic shellfish ...

Harmful Algal Blooms, Acidification and Climate Ch...

This project investigates the interactive effects of acidification, warming, and nutrients on three economically important harmful algal bloom (HAB) species in the Salish Sea. Spanning the western US-Canada border, the ...

Multidisciplinary Approach to a Cross-Regional Pro...

Diarrhetic shellfish poisoning (DSP) has emerged as a significant and expanding seafood safety threat in coastal regions across the United States. The harmful algal species Dinophysis produces toxins known to ...

National Analytical Response to Harmful Algal Bloo...

We use extreme events to research new or changing impacts of harmful algal blooms in coastal waters. The NOAA Analytical Response Team leverages cutting-edge analytical methods and collaborative relationships with ...

Oceanographic and Cellular Controls on Domoic Acid...

Domoic acid is a neurotoxin produced by some diatoms in the genus Pseudo-nitzschia. Domoic acid can accumulate in shellfish and fish, and cause illness or death in humans, marine mammals, ...

Publication Provides Guidance on Implementing Earl...

An international team of researchers and managers that includes NCCOS scientists published technical guidance to help improve harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring and forecasting around the globe. The document provides ...

11th U.S. Harmful Algal Bloom Symposium Highlights...

The 11th U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae highlighted advances in research and development of scientifically sound solutions to aid communities across the country in responding to the increasing impacts from harmful ...

NCCOS Awards $16.1M for Harmful Algal Bloom Resear...

Cyanobacteria shares some properties with algae and are found naturally in lakes, streams, ponds and other surface waters. (EPA) NCCOS is announcing $16.1 million in funding for harmful algal bloom ...

NOAA Announces FY23 Notice of Funding Opportunity ...

Western Lake Erie True Color Image of a harmful algal bloom derived from Ocean and Land Color Instrument (OLCI) sensor on Copernicus Sentinel-b obtained from EUMETSAT. NOAA’s National Centers for ...

Scientists Train Underwater Gliders to Find, Track...

The dynamic nature of the ocean, including its many chemical and biological processes, makes it challenging to monitor microscopic, marine algae in real time, but NCCOS-funded scientists have shown it ...

Harmful Algal Blooms May Soon Wreak Havoc in Arcti...

Climatic changes in Arctic Alaska are resulting in more harmful algal blooms (HABs) for the region, signaling a potential growing threat to human and ecosystem health. Over the last decade, ...

Understanding Blooms of Dinoflagellate Margalefidi...

Margalefidinium polykrikoides (previously known as Cochlodinium polykrikoides) is a toxic dinoflagellate algae found in Chesapeake Bay. NCCOS sponsored scientists at Old Dominion University used a time-dependent model to assess environmental ...

NOAA Scientists and Sponsored Researchers Particip...

The 19th International Conference on Harmful Algae (ICHA) was held remotely October 10th - 15th, 2021 from La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Almost 400 ICHA contributions from 47 countries ...

New Study Finds Growing Potential for Toxic Algal ...

Satellite image of Bering Sea algal bloom. Provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE. Changes in the northern Alaskan Arctic ocean environment have reached a point ...

Evaluation of Rapid, Early Warning Approaches to Track Shellfish Toxins Associated with Dinophysis and Alexandrium Blooms

Marine biotoxin-contaminated seafood has caused thousands of poisonings worldwide this century. Given these threats, there is an increasing need for improved technologies that can be easily integrated into coastal monitoring programs. This study evaluates approaches for monitoring toxins associated with ...
