The Southern California Bight Nutrient Loading Study. The coastal zone of Southern California is a highly built-up urban environment. Development in this region has been shown to significantly alter both the timing and rate of runoff releases to coastal waters and can affect water quality through addition of sediment, toxic chemicals, pathogens, and nutrients.

The Southern California Bight Regional Monitoring Program (Bight'03) is an effort to provide an integrated assessment of the SCB through cooperative region-scale monitoring.

A behavioral ecology perspective on cetaceans in the Southern California Bight (SCB) can contribute to science-based adaptive management in the context of expanding anthropogenic activities. Objectives were to (1) identify behaviors associated with habitat resource selection, (2) evaluate species differences related to body size, group size Author: Mari Ann Smultea.

The Southern California Bight (SCB) coastal environment is a unique ecological resource ().Extending > km from Point Conception (United States) to Punta Colonet (Mexico), the SCB is a dynamic subtemperate region where the cold, southward-flowing California Current mixes with the warm, northward-flowing California Countercurrent (Hickey, ).Cited by: 1.
Here is a benchmark study of one significant stretch of the Pacific Ocean, the Southern California Bight.
Extending from Point Conception to the Mexican border and out to the mile limit, these waters have never before been investigated in such detail, from so many points of view, by such an eminent group of scientists.5/5(1).
The Southern California Bight is the curved coastline of Southern California from Point Conception to San Diego. The area includes the Channel Islands and part of the Pacific Ocean. Native Americans occupied the Southern California Bight before the arrival of Spanish explorers in the 16th century.
This region is known for having a climate. NOVEMBER 4, — On Octo the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP) celebrated its 50th Anniversary.
Image credit: NOAA. Since its origin inSCCWRP's half-century of research on marine environmental quality in the Southern California Bight has spawned many interactions with NOAA.
The Southern California Bight is a region that includes coastal southern California, the Channel Islands and the local portion of the Pacific Ocean.
This region is referred to as a bight because the characteristic north-south trending coastline found off much of western North America experiences a significant curvature or indentation along the.
“The California Ocean Protection Council hereby approves the disbursement of up to $, to the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP) to conduct a bioscreening and non-targeted analysis for contaminants of emerging concern in sediment and fish tissue samples from the Southern California Size: KB.
The SCB is one of the most studied areas of the United States. Although the name Southern California Bight is a regional name that has not been defined in geologic terms (bight is defined as a bend or curve in the coastline), it is used in this book to describe the southern California continental : Southern California Coastal Water Research Proiect (SCCWRP) as one component of the Southern California Bight Regional Monitoring pro& (Bight'98), Ad builds upon the success of a similar SCCWRP-coordinated regional monitoring program conducted in.

Co-Authors and Collaborators. A comparison of foraminiferal faunal trends in pristine and impacted regions on the continental shelf and slope of the Southern California Bight, as well as variations in the temporal foraminiferal distribution patterns from tosuggest that the benthic microfaunal communities have been greatly affected by the presence of contaminated sediment near the major outfall sites.
WILDLIFE AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANT INTERACTIONS. Long-term data bases are being established for better ecological evaluations of long-term contaminant and population trends in seabirds and other wildlife in the Gulf of California and in the State of California, as well as to contribute basic ecological information on the species studied.
Southern California Bight Regional Monitoring Program (Bight ’13) in coordination with the Regional Harbor Monitoring Program (RHMP) included samples of sediment, plankton, benthic invertebrates and fish collected from San Diego Bay.
The Bight ’13 survey also included seabird eggs from five locations in the Bay. The Southern California Bight (SCB) is the name given to the coastal and offshore area "between Point Conception on the Santa Barbara County coast and a point just south of the United States - Mexico border."  Point Conception marks the boundary.
