How do you learn if and when cyanobacterial blooms occur in your favorite lake? NALMS and the ITRC want to know!
In the October/November issue of this newsletter we announced new features on the NALMS Inland HABs Program Webpage, including an interactive Story Map featuring cyanobacteria resources. These resources are maintained by Shane Bradt and Angela Shambaugh, co-chairs of our HABs Committee. Angela Shambaugh is also co-leader of a study focused on harmful cyanobacteria blooms by a national team sponsored by the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC). Angela reports, “The final product will include sections on nutrient management, monitoring, in-lake management approaches, and communication strategies. Team membership is open now and NALMS ...
NALMS Inland HABs Program poster directs people to new webpages, the Cyanobacteria Resources Story Map, and seeks input from NALMS members.
The NALMS Inland HABs Program webpages have been updated and expanded! The information contained on the pages has been refocused around three key issues – providing public resources, sharing applied educational information, and featuring stories profiling approaches to understanding and managing cyanobacteria.
Presentations, posters, and workshops featuring cyanobacteria can be found throughout the 2019 NALMS International Symposium taking place in Burlington, VT from November 11th to 15th.
The NALMS Inland HABs Program interactive Story Map makes it easy to find public resources to deal with cyanobacteria in a specific region, provides access to a range of stories of how people are studying, managing and communicating about cyanobacteria, and serves as a discovery tool for ongoing regional and national projects related to cyanobacteria taking place in North America.
The process of assessing the potential danger of cyanobacteria in a water body includes several steps, which are delineated below, including determination of where to sample, how to sample in the field, identification of cyanobacteria present, and detection of toxins.
California has funded the San Francisco Estuary Institute to develop an interactive Satellite Analysis Tool to characterize the seasonality, spatial distribution, and development of harmful algal blooms in 250 of the state’s largest waterbodies. This tool provides a spatial display of cyanobacteria blooms, easy to understand charts that let you see long-term and short-term trends.
The process of assessing the potential danger of cyanobacteria in a water body includes several steps. Step 4 focuses on the detection of cyanobacterial toxins.
Water quality managers need access to current, inexpensive and quality data to protect water resources. To assist in the proactive management of cyanoHAB events, EPA researchers, along with researchers from NASA, NOAA, and the USGS have developed a time-efficient way to use satellite data in monitoring for cyanoHAB events to help protect recreational and drinking water sources.
