Up-to-date state resources related to water quality monitoring and algal toxin testing.
Home of the U.S. National Office for Harmful Algal Blooms, the website is a clearinghouse for information related to national and international activity on HAB issues. Content includes U.S. Maps of HAB species and syndromes, environmental and economic impacts of HABs, and resources related to research and response.
Maintained by the U.S. National Office for Harmful Algal Blooms, subscribe to this page to keep up to date on current U.S. HAB news across the nation.
Sponsored by NSF and NIH, the WHCOHH is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to studying the intersection between oceanographic research and human health. Current research is focused on understanding plasticity of bloom dynamics (Project 1), the effect of climate forcing on HABs the Northeast (Project 2) and cellular effects of long-term toxin exposure (Project 3).
The Anderson Lab studies the physiology and ecology of HAB organisms around the world. Current projects include the study of Alexandrium and Pseudo-nitzschia bloom dynamics in the Gulf of Maine, distribution of HAB species in the Arctic, strategies for mitigation of Karenia brevis in Florida, and community dynamics of Gambierdiscus in the Caribbean.
