EPA’s Watershed Academy will host the third in a series of webcasts:  ”How to Track a HAB: New Technologies and Methods for Identifying and Monitoring Harmful Algal Blooms” on August 20, 2013. Don Anderson from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Steve Morton from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will continue the series with a discussion of innovative methods for identifying these algae and their blooms and how both government and research institutions and even the public can help to monitor their outbreak and spread.

This webcast series is a part of a broader outreach effort this summer that aims to focus public attention on harmful algal blooms, which are associated with nutrient pollution, and can sicken people and pets, devastate aquatic ecosystems, and be a detriment to the economy. Register here>>
