Estuaries on the Edge: The Vital Link Between Land and Sea
(American Oceans Campaign, 1996)
This report examines the values of and the threats to 28 estuaries, and how the National Estuary Program (NEP) is working to help protect these valuable resources. The clock is ticking for these "nationally significant" ...
Nutrient Enhanced Coastal Ocean Productivity in the Northern Gulf of Mexico - Understanding the Effects of Nutrients on a Coastal Ecosystem
(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Ocean Service, 1999-04)

Effects of Reducing Nutrient Loads to Surface Waters within the Mississippi River Basin and the Gulf of Mexico
(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Ocean Service Coastal Ocean Program, 1999-05)
The overall goal of this assessment was to evaluate the effects of nutrient-source reductions that may be implemented in the Mississippi River Basin (MRB) to reduce the problem of low oxygen conditions (hypoxia) in the ...
Sources and Quantities of Nutrients Entering the Gulf of Mexico from Surface Waters of the United States
(United States Environmental Protection Agency, 1992-09)
This report was prepared for the Nutrient Enrichment Subcommittee of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Gulf of Mexico Program. Because nearly 60% of the continental United States drains into the Gulf of Mexico, a ...
Estimated loadings of partially treated domestic wastewater on Galveston Bay
(Galveston Bay National Estuary Program, 1994)
The potential impacts of partially treated effluent on adjacent water bodies are numerous. These impacts include reductions in dissolved oxygen, eutrophication, and elevated fecal coliform levels. However, quantification ...

The Nonpoint Source Watershed Workshop was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, on January 29-31, 1991. The workshop was jointly sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Center for Environmental Research Information, ...
Characterization of Hypoxia
(NOAA Coastal Ocean Program, 1999-05)
Nutrient overenrichment from human activities is one of the major stresses affecting coastal ecosytems. There is increasing concern in many areas around the world that an oversupply of nutrients from multiple sources is ...
