RealTime HABs

The latest water measurements at the NEMO Observatory site where the Environmental Sample Processor is located 13 miles off La Push, Washington. Data are updated in near-real time. These products are provided to help understand where toxic algae may be moving and the conditions that may influence toxic blooms.

Pseudo-nitzschia pungens (Present / Not Detected)

Present / Not Detected information for Pseudo-nitzschia pungens. For Pseudo-nitzschia pungens to be reported as present, the minimum number of cells that need to be sampled from a 1 liter seawater sample is estimated at 75,000. Not Detected means that Pseudo-nitzschia pungens is either absent from the seawater sample or that too few cells were sampled in order to detect it.

Description of the Terms

Quantifiable: Sensor returned a positive value that could be quantified reliably.

≥ ULOQ: Value is greater than or equal to the Upper Limit Of Quantification. Value is above the sensor's ability to quantify reliably; true value is greater than the value reported by some unknown amount.

≤ LLOQ: Value is less than or equal to the Lower Limit Of Quantification. Value is below the sensor's ability to detect and/or quantify reliably; value could range from zero to the LLOQ value. All LLOQ values are for a 1 liter water sample.
