Harmful algal blooms (HABs) have increased in both frequency and intensity in the last two decades, driven by climate change and activities that introduce growth-stimulating nutrients into waterways.

Join Dr. Stephanie A. Smith, on July 26th at 2:00pm (EDT) as she provides a basic overview of bloom-forming algae, including a review of the toxins that are of human health concern.

Register for the live webinar, and you'll learn:

  • Which factors contribute to HABs and what makes HABs problematic
  • How biological, water quality and metrological parameters can be monitored by responders to minimize the impact of HABs and human exposure
  • How unique pigments of algae allow for monitoring using fluorescence-based tools, ranging from handheld meters to satellites
  • The importance of monitoring water quality parameters that either lead to or result from HABs

This is the first of a two part webinar series on harmful algal blooms. Keep an eye out for an invitation for our second event coming later this summer.
