2 Human Impacts to Marine Ecosystems Extent of Harmful Human Influences on Global Marine Ecosystems Description Details Playlist Builde that 40% of the world's oceans are heavily impacted by human activities, researchers also concluded that no area is unaffected by human influence. However, there are large areas that have relatively low human impact, especially near the poles. The areas where humans have had the worst impact include the East Cost of North America, North Sea, The ocean has an impact on the lives of everyone on Earth, even those who don't live on the coasts. It has been estimated that one in every six jobs in the United States is marine-related and that 50% of all species on Earth are supported by the ocean. Because of this, it is important to protect and preserve the oceans. Humans however have been shown to have a negative impact on the oceans. A report issued in February 2008 found that 40% of the world's oceans are heavily impacted by human activities, such as overfishing and pollution. In all 17 different human activities were examined in the report, including fertilizer run-off, commercial shipping, and indirect activities such as changes in sea surface temperature, UV radiation, and ocean acidification. This dataset is a map that was put together from the data compiled from the report, A Global Map of Human Impact on Marine Ecosystems, which was published in Science Magazine (see full text).

3 Dimension of the seas and coasts of Mexico LME Around Mexico GC GULF OF MEXICO CARIBBEAN SEA PACIFIC Central-America Coastal TERRITORY 17 coastal states 150 coastl municipalities 3,149,920 km² EEZ NATURAL. 130 coastal lagoons High biodiversity Numerous thretened or endagered species High geomorphologic and climatic variety Higlhy productive and fragile ecosystems and Fragile ecosystems (mangroves, coral reefs,coastal lagoons) LMEs are natural regions of ocean space encompassing coastal waters from river basins and estuaries to the seaward boundary of continental shelves and the outer margins of coastal currents. They are relatively large regions of 200,000 km2 or greater, the natural boundaries of which are based on four ecological criteria: bathymetry, hydrography, productivity, and trophically related populations. The concept that critical processes controlling the structure and function of biological communities can best be addressed on a regional basis has been applied to the ocean by using LMEs as the distinct units for marine resources assessment, monitoring, and management.

SST temperatures for the dates indicated as simulated by HYCOM. Given the biological importance of the up-welling sites in the productivity of such a region, and to better represent the implication of the near-field wind in the case of the BCC, an atmospheric numerical model is employed. Particular attention is given to the influence of wind direction on wind circulation as well as its effect on generation of upwelling zones. Wind stress curl, coastal upwelling index and ocean surface currents are computed using the simulated winds

23 MEXICOOS is planned to interact with its International Counterparts NEWS & NOTICES MOU WITH WEST COAST GOVERNORS ALLIANCE ON OCEAN HEALTH ENSO Alert System Status: El Niño in California? The West Coast Ocean Observing Systems (SCCOOS, CeNCOOS and NANOOS) and the West Coast Governors Alliance on Ocean Health (WCGA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in October 2012 to advance the effective management of coastal and ocean resources on the West Coast. The MOU, signed by the state governments of California, Oregon and Washington and by the directors of SCCOOS, CeNCOOS and NANOOS, provides a formal mechanism for ensuring that the organizations' collaborative efforts are responsive to the comprehensive West Coast stakeholder community and incorporate the best available ocean observation-based information.

HOME ABOUT US THE GULF FOCUS RESOURCES RESTORE ACT WEST COAST MOU Search GET INVOLVED DATA PORTAL PRODUCTS MEXICOOS May 2014: San Diego Fires (read more) In order to further the mission of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) and serve the requirements for ocean observations, data, and information at the scale of the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME), the three regional components of IOOS on the West Coast recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to expand and strengthen West Coast regional ocean observing collaboration. April 2014: SCCOOS visits Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve and Carlsbad Aquafarm. (read more) March 2014: Coming Soon... SCCOOS Near- Real Time Data in the SD Airport (read more) Through the MOU, the Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS), the Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS), and the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) affirmed their commitment to jointly plan CCLME observations and share information that will mutually benefit each subregion and the West Coast as a whole. PUBLIC EDUCATORS MEMBERS BUILD-OUT PLAN IOOS is a national-regional partnership working to provide new tools and forecasts to improve safety, enhance the economy, and protect our environment, said Zdenka Willis, Director of the U.S. IOOS Program. Long-term partnership building between regional IOOS partners further strengthens the national system and its ability to address unique management issues that span political boundaries. The MOU represents a formalization of the commitment of SCCOOS, CeNCOOS, and NANOOS to work cooperatively with governmental and non-governmental entities in identifying and providing ocean and coastal information products that inform a broad range of scientific, economic and management activities in fisheries and water quality, climate variability and change, coastal hazards, marine commerce and safety, and other priorities identified by regional management groups. GCOOS*NEWS SCCOOS, CeNCOOS and NANOOS have demonstrated their ability to effectively address sub-regional issues based on unique expertise and stakeholder input, said John Stein, Acting NW Fisheries Science Center Director and Western Regional Collaboration Team Lead for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Functioning as a cohesive whole at the scale of important regional ocean governance and management initiatives including the West Coast Governors Agreement on Ocean Health will ultimately benefit the stakeholders in these initiatives and the users of the IOOS system.
