Title: Dead Zones off New Jersey
Url: http://www.geotimes.org/mar05/NN_NJdeadzone.html
Creator: Pratt, Sara
Publisher: American Geological Institute
Description: This Geotimes article gives a brief overview of the New Jersey dead zone. Unlike the Mississippi delta hypoxia, which is thought to occur from nutrient overloading from farms along the Mississippi River, oceanographers believe that coastal upwelling from the sea, bringing excess nutrients to the coastal waters, is the cause of New Jersey's dead zone.
