Alexandrium catenella nowcast/forecast for the Gulf of Maine

NOAA NCCOS is pleased to announce the release of our FY2022 season Alexandrium catenella nowcast/forecast for the Gulf of Maine.

Note that the model is underestimating the bloom in the coastal western Gulf of Maine, as suggested by both MWRA and New Hampshire water samples. Model sensitivity experiments are carried out to provide more useful information as more data becomes available. We will also perform post-season analysis aiming to understand the bloom dynamics of the 2022 bloom.
