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.
Species Present / Not Detected
Pseudo-nitzschia fraudulenta (Abundance)
Quantitative cell abundances of Pseudo-nitzschia fraudulenta. This species can sometimes produce the toxin domoic acid which can cause amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans.
Please note that the genetic probes used to detect Pseudo-nitzschia fraudulenta are experimental (H. Bowers, MLML).
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.
