Latest Hypoxia Stories
Reducing the size of the Lake Erie "dead zone" to acceptable levels will require cutting nutrient pollution nearly in half in coming decades, at a time when climate change is expected to make such reductions more difficult.
Tulane University has announced that it is offering a $1 million prize to the researcher or entrepreneur who devises the best plan to combat annual “dead zones” in lakes and oceans.
Scientists may have found a new treatment that can help people with spinal cord injuries walk better.
An international team of researchers has discovered the genetic basis of chronic mountain sickness, a condition developed during prolonged exposure to high altitudes, according to research appearing in the August 15 edition of the American Journal of Human Genetics.
NOAA-supported scientists found a large Gulf of Mexico oxygen-free or hypoxic "dead" zone, but not as large as had been predicted.
Scientists at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science have completed a 10-year study, providing the first quantitative evidence on a bay-wide scale that the distribution and abundance of "demersal" fishes -- fish species that live and feed near the Bay bottom -- are being impacted by low-oxygen "dead zones."
This year, scientists are expecting a very large “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico, according to several NOAA-supported forecast models. Those same models predict a smaller than average hypoxic level in the Chesapeake Bay.
