Jeffrey Hyland

Acting Branch Chief, Benthic Ecology + Pathology Branch
Center for Coastal Environmental Health and Biomolecular Research
National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, NOS, NOAA


Expertise:
Marine benthic ecology, ecotoxicology, coastal monitoring

Issues of Interest:
Effects of pollutants in aquatic ecosystems; animal-sediment-pollutant interactions; patterns in the distribution and diversity of benthic fauna in relation to human and natural factors.

Current Projects:
Current work in Georgia focuses on studies of benthic communities and potential pollutants in sediments and biota in the Grays Reef National Marine Sanctuary and surrounding shelf waters off the coast of Georgia.

Location:
Estuaries and near-coastal shelf environments.

Information Needs:
Benthic and contaminant data for Georgia estuaries, particularly those linked to Sapelo, Doboy, and Altamaha Sounds. Also could use data on sediment transport dynamics and water movement on the continental shelf, particularly in the Grays Reef National Marine Sanctuary area.
