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 audiences include 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:
- Nutrients and processes behind algal blooms
- New tools to track and predict algal blooms
- Latest progress from Ohio agencies managing water quality and algal blooms
- Impacts of manure and stream processes on nutrient loads
