2017 Journal of Applied Remote Sensing  
The exchange of coastal waters between the Mississippi Sound (MSS), Mobile Bay, and Mississippi Bight is an important pathway for oil and pollutants into coastal ecosystems.  ...  The October 2015 chlorophyll-a anomaly was significantly low inside and outside the MSS for the 2003 to 2015 time series. Similar low-chlorophyll-a anomalies were only seen in 2003.  ...  Salinity levels within coastal areas of Mississippi and Alabama are generally high (>32 psu, practical salinity units) in open water areas located south of the barrier islands and low (<20 psu) in near-coastal  ...
