Abstract

Nutrient enrichment from anthropogenic sources is one of the major stresses imposed on our coastal ecosystems. This is particularly true in the northern Gulf of Mexico where the nation's largest river discharges into an otherwise oligotrophic subtropical system. Through the Nutrient Enhanced Coastal Ocean Productivity Program of NOAA's Coastal Ocean Program, a series of closely integrated linkages between nutrients derived from the extensive Mississippi drainage basin and the coastal ecosystem of the northern Gulf of Mexico and document its current status. -from Authors
