In the next 100 years, accelerated sea-level rise (SLR) and urbanization will greatly modify coastal landscapes across the globe. More than one-half of coastal wetlands in the contiguous United States are located along the Gulf of Mexico coast. In addition to supporting fish and wildlife habitat, these highly productive wetlands support many ecosystem goods and services including storm protection, recreation, clean water, and carbon sequestration. Historically, tidal saline wetlands (TSWs) have adapted to sea-level fluctuations through lateral and vertical movement on the landscape. As sea levels rise in the future, some TSWs will adapt and migrate landward in undeveloped low-lying areas where migration corridors...

The website and data server at http://stellwagen.er.usgs.gov/ is a USGS approved database. It provides descriptions of the research programs and access to time series oceanographic data collected by USGS investigators at the Woods Hole Science Center, often in collaboration with others, as part of experiments to study circulation and sediment transport in the coastal ocean. The experiments were carried out between 1975 and present. Measurements include ocean current velocity, wave statistics, temperature, pressure, conductivity, light transmission (beam atttenuation) among others. In some experiments, local meteorolical data was also collected. Data is provided at the fastest instrument sampling interval and...

This is an ArcGIS shapefile which depicts the seasonal salinity dynamics of 32 Gulf of Mexico estuaries. To characterize the dynamic nature of estuarine salinity gradients, a multivariate methodology (Bulger et al. 1993) was applied to derive five bio-salinity zones in four salinity seasons for 32 Gulf of Mexico estuaries (Christensen et al. 1997). This seasonal salinity zone spatial framework built upon and refined earlier studies which characterized salinity on an annual-averaged basis (NOAA 1985, Orlando et al. 1993, NOAA 2007). Precipitation, flow gage data, and monthly salinity averages were evaluated to determine which months would be used to represent the high, low, and transitional (increasing and decreasing)...

This data release includes data processing scripts, data products, and associated metadata for a study investigating trends in nitrogen and phosphorus river loads to the Gulf of Mexico. This data release consists of three main components: 1) Nitrogen and phosphorus balances and accumulation, which account for major nutrient inputs (fertilizer, manure, waste water treatment facility effluent, atmospheric deposition, weathering and nitrogen fixation) and outputs (crop harvest and removal and gaseous emissions of nitrogen). Annual balances and total accumulation are estimated for the entire Mississippi River Basin, which covers 2,887,854 km2 for the time period 1950 to 2017, 2) Weighted Regression on Time Season and...

This report consists of two-dimensional marine seismic reflection profile datafrom the northern Gulf of Mexico. These data were acquired in 1998 and 1999with the Research Vessels Tommy Munro (M1-98-GM) and Gyre (G1-99-GM). The data are availablein binary and GIF image formats. Binary data are in Society of ExplorationGeologists (SEG) SEG-Y format and may be downloaded for further processing ordisplay. Reference maps and GIF images of the profiles may be viewed with yourWeb browser.

This dataset represents the projected urban growth in the Northern Gulf of Mexico in 2060 with a 50% or greater probability of being urban. It was predicted by the model SLEUTH, developed by Dr. Keith C. Clarke, at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Department of Geography and modified by David I. Doato of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Eastern Geographic Science Center (EGSC). Further model modification and implementation was performed at the Biodiversity and Spatial Information Center at North Carolina State University. More information about these data (along with downloadable ESRI GRID files) can be found at http://www.basic.ncsu.edu/dsl/urb.html
