2019 Summer LakeLine issue on Harmful Algal Blooms
The summer 2019 issue of NALMS LakeLine magazine focuses on harmful algal blooms.
Summer is prime time for potentially Harmful Algal Blooms to appear in lakes. Every other year, the summer issue of NALMS LakeLine focuses on what is currently going on in terms of cyanobacteria research, technologies, and advisories. It seems like HABs are occurring at an ever-increasing frequency, with Lake Erie’s large and long-lived bloom well-publicized in the media in recent years, and fears lingering of another such epic bloom.
Topics in the 2019 summer HABs issue include the detection of cyanobacteria with satellites, a well-developed monitoring program on Lake Champlain, and the importance of studying benthic cyanobacteria.
Digital versions of the other recent LakeLine issues dedicated to cyanobacteria are also available on the NALMS website.
