Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) can have serious repercussions for animal and human health. Their increasing presence has been linked to multiple events such as nutrient runoff, climate change, invasive species, and disturbed ecosystems. This webinar will look at what researchers are currently doing to predict when these blooms might occur; how these blooms are affecting inland waters and the Great Lakes; and how stakeholders and citizens are helping scientists track these harmful algal blooms.
Featured speakers include:
Kristen DeVanna Fussell, Ph.D., Assistant Director of Administration and Research, Ohio Sea Grant College Program and Stone Laboratory
Grace Wilkinson, Assistant Professor, Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology, Iowa State University
Devin Grace Gill, Stakeholder Engagement Specialist, University of Michigan, Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) at NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL)
