Virtual Harmful Algal Bloom Research Symposium
January 6 @ 8:30 am - January 7 @ 4:30 pm
The North Central Region Algal Bloom Action Team was formed in 2018 and is comprised of representatives from Extension and the Water Resources Research Institutes at each of the land-grant universities within the North Central Region. Collectively, the team is working to make emergent HAB research accessible to agriculture and natural resource educators across the region. As a part of this work, the team is once again hosting a Virtual Harmful Algal Bloom Research Symposium!
The Algal Bloom Action Team will be hosting a free Virtual Harmful Algal Bloom Research Symposium in January 2022. Last year’s event brought together over 890 educators and researchers from across the US to hear the latest HAB research and discuss ongoing outreach efforts.
This year’s symposium will feature emergent harmful algal bloom (HAB) research and provide a venue for moderated discussions regarding HAB research, outreach, and how information dissemination can be improved. We have 16 cutting-edge HAB research presentations lined up focusing on four different topics:
- HAB Monitoring and Ecology
- Cyanotoxin Treatment and Detection
- Forecasting and Modeling HABs
- Emerging Technology for Detecting and Monitoring HABs
This event is free, but registration is required. More information, including a detailed agenda. is forthcoming.
