And Atmospheric Administration, N. O. (n.d.). State of the Coastal Endironment Oxygen Depletion in Coastal Waters. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Oxygen depletion occurs primarily during the summer in over half of the major estuaries in the United States. Its duration and extent range from a few weeks and limited areas to several months and expansive areas. Because the physics of some estuarine and coastal systems isolate the bottom waters from interaction with the atmosphere they become susceptible to oxygen depletion; however, human activities increase the likelihood of the phenomenon. Evidence associates oxygen depletion with changes in landscape use and nutrient management that result in nutrient enrichment of receiving waters. Increases in nutrient inputs clearly and directly relate to population density in watersheds draining to coastal areas, and population-driven increases in nutrient loading are causing problems in the form of oxygen depletion, habitat loss, fish kills and the frequency of harmful algal blooms...
