In recent work, two new cohomologies were introduced for almost complex manifolds: the so-called J-cohomology and N-cohomology [CKT17]. For the case of integrable (complex) structures, the former cohomology was already considered in [DGMS75], and the latter agrees with de Rham cohomology. In this dissertation, using ideas from [CW18], we introduce spectral sequences for these two cohomologies, showing the two cohomologies have natural bigradings. We show the spectral sequence for the J-cohomology converges at the second page whenever the almost complex structure is integrable, and explain how both fit in a natural diagram involving Bott-Chern cohomology and the Frolicher spectral sequence. Using explicit formulas that we derive for the pages, as well as topology in some cases, we deduce several properties of the groups and the natural maps in various degrees. As applications, we study the Kodaira-Thurston and Iwasawa manifolds, as well as a hypothetical complex structure of the six-sphere.
