(2008) Hypoxia in the Northern Gulf of Mexico: An update by the EPA Science Advisory Board

In 2006 as part of the reassessment, EPA’s Office of Water, on behalf of the Task Force, requested that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science Advisory Board (SAB) convene an independent panel to evaluate the state of the science regarding hypoxia in the Northern Gulf of Mexico and potential nutrient mitigation and control options in the Mississippi-Atchafalaya River basin (MARB). The Task Force was particularly interested in scientific advances since the Integrated Assessment and issued charge questions in three areas: characterization of hypoxia; nutrient fate, transport and sources; and the scientific basis for goals and management options.
