Probing the genetics of harmful algal blooms

 | 

Davis, Timothy

Today, NOAA issued the 2015 Harmful Algal Bloom Season Forecast for Lake Erie that integrates rainfall, river flow, and nutrient runoff measurements into computer models to better predict toxic algal blooms. As part of a team of NOAA scientists, Timothy Davis, Ph.D. studies the genetics of toxic algae at NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL).
