The Coastal Ocean Program is currently funding over 68 competitively awarded ongoing extramural research funding commitments to over 80 external marine science institutions. This cutting-edge research has already and will in the future benefit the management of U.S. coastal resources and increase our understanding of the coastal ocean. Projects are underway to unravel the ecology and oceanography of harmful algal blooms and help coastal states manage HAB associated health and economic risks; understand the effects of human impacts on coral reef ecosystems in the Caribbean and Micronesia; assess the potential impacts of the Everglades restoration project on South Florida ecosystems; understanding the effects of climate variability on fish stocks in the Northwest Pacific and Northwest Atlantic; and detecting and assessing the extent of the hypoxic area in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. CSCOR studies will also examine the impacts of multiple stressors on coastal ecosystems in Louisiana and integrate the findings of recently completed east coast research projects.
