Summary
Abstract: The Nutrient-Enhanced Coastal Ocean Productivity (NECOP) program provides
understanding of coastal ecosystem response to nutrient enrichment. The
northern Gulf of Mexico, an otherwise oligotrophic subtropical system, receives
large anthropogenic stresses from the Mississippi River. For example, riverine
nitrate discharge has more than doubled over the past 40 years, although
loadings have ... View entire text
