Year in Review: Comparing Harmful Algal Blooms from this Year to Last

Following an unprecedented year of harmful algal blooms (HABs), 2017, it was hoped, would provide a relief from these events. For some waterbodies, conditions had improved compared to 2016, but for others, conditions may have deteriorated. This discussion will compare 2017 HABs to last year-- exploring differences in diversity and concentration of cyanobacteria and their cyanotoxins. Additionally, it will cover the latest techniques adopted by UDWQ for tracking these events and the latest coordination processes implemented this year.
