Understanding the 2015 West Coast Harmful Algal Bloom

NANOOS provides an on-line overview of what scientists have learned regarding the large, unprecedented Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) along the U.S. west coast during spring 2015. Prepared by JISAO scientist Ryan McCabe, the overview explains that the HAB was initiated by anomalously warm water temperatures. This has implications for a higher occurrence of HAB events as waters warm, which presents ecological, economic, and human health repercussions. NANOOS is collaborating with UW, NOAA, and other partners on a project to provide HAB forecasts.
