NOAA outlines algal bloom projections, reporting tools

Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) held a briefing on the use of algal bloom tracking and forecasting data yesterday. The briefing covered the latest harmful algal bloom (HAB) projection data as well as new tools and technology for tracking and reporting.

“When you open the newspaper and watch the news you see information on allergens,” said Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who also attended the meeting. “You look at how we report on future potential for tornadoes and hurricanes, and in some areas of the country, wildfire conditions.
