Understanding Algal Blooms: State of the Science Virtual Conference

September 2, 2020 – This conference will highlight current scientific knowledge related to algal blooms

The Understanding Algal Blooms: State of the Science Virtual Conference will highlight current scientific knowledge related to algal blooms. Research and outreach leaders will present findings from recent studies and identify important areas of uncertainty.

Expected audience includes academic researchers, state and federal agencies and the agricultural community interested in the latest algal bloom science and technology, with an expected audience largely from Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. Members of the academic research community, state and federal agencies and the agricultural community are especially encouraged to attend.

Research and outreach leaders will present findings from recent studies and identify important areas of uncertainty. Specific topics will include:

  • Collaborations and partnerships critical for improving water quality
  • Understanding lag times and soil phosphorus dynamics
  • The latest in edge-of-field research and best management practices
