Description:

Report from the Interagency Working Group on Harmful Algal Blooms, Hypoxia and Human Health. Joint Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (JOST)

Purpose/Objective:

This report was prepared by a task force associated with the IWG-4H that included representatives of Federal agencies participating in the science and management of coastal hypoxia. It builds on earlier reports to assess hypoxia in U.S. coastal waters (CENR 2003) by updating the assessments and summarizing the major advances in hypoxia research during the past five years. Specifically, this report draws on An Assessment of Coastal Hypoxia and Eutrophication in U.S. Waters (CENR 2003), which was called for in HABHRCA 1998, and The State of Hypoxia in United States Estuarine and Coastal Waters (Diaz 2009). This report also recommends priorities for future hypoxia-related research across the U.S. government.
