We just finished a week of technical presentations on Harmful Algae Blooms in Orange Beach AL!
The symposium focused on emerging harmful algal blooms in the US, crossing the land-sea interface in temperate and subtropical zones in the face of climate change and shifting land use.
It was great learning about the enormous amount of science and research investigating harmful algae blooms and exploring exciting new ways to help monitor and mitigate these problems impacting local communities all around the world.
Between insightful results of dog deaths from harmful algae blooms to the largest bloom ever recorded (the great Atlantic Sargassum macroalgae bloom), this conference had it all when it comes to the negative impacts our water and air pollution is having on terrestrial, marine and economic factors!
