Internal Phosphorus Loading: Where It Is and What It Does to Cyanobacteria During Climate Change

October 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT


This year ALMS is hosting a webinar series to learn from experts from across North America on various lake related topics! This series will showcase presentations every Friday morning from September 10 to October 1. Presentation topics include remote sensing of lake levels and algal blooms, internal loading, salt pollution, aquatic invasive species, and eDNA. We encourage you to register for the presentations to receive timely updates and post-webinar follow-ups. Check out our website (https://alms.ca/2021-webinar-series/) to register.
