Research Gaps Identified to Improve Future Harmful Algal Bloom Forecasts
Description: Researchers conclude current HAB (Harmful Algae Bloom) research strategies do not adequately address the basic linkages between temperature change, stratification, light, ocean acidification, precipitation-induced nutrient inputs, and grazing. The lack of uniform experimental protocols limited interdisciplinary and comparative investigations. The group recommended a HAB "best practices" manual to address those issues.
