Detailed Description

In this video, three speakers explain U.S. Geological Survey research on harmful algal blooms (HABs) and the nutrients that cause these toxic emerald-green blooms in the Nation’s lakes, reservoirs, and coastal waters. Jennifer Graham and Tom Stiles discuss how USGS science is contributing to the development of early warning systems and predictive tools to guide management decisions in this area of emerging concern. Paul Capel follows this with a discussion of research on nutrients in Chesapeake Bay and how it can help set realistic expectations for managing nutrients in one of the Nation’s most valued waterways.
