Creeping Dead Zones

In many coastal waters dead zones are on the rise-- the lack of oxygen in these areas is destroying ocean life habitats. Agriculture run-off that feeds phytoplankton activity is the suspected cause in many cases. NASA has been studying the problem with their sea-viewing cameras (see report(1)) and a dead zone off Oregon(2) has recently received media coverage.
