Decision Support Tools for Nearshore Water Quality Prediction

In FY12 we will connect our statistical and mechanistic HAB decision support systems to incorporate watershed loading at rivermouths (e.g. phosphorus loading) into Lake Erie to further transition our Lake Erie HAB Forecast Bulletin into an operational tool and provide information to management agencies on the effects of watershed loading on the growth and persistence of Microcystis blooms. We will also conduct field sampling in an event response manner and collect samples during the algal bloom season when blooms are present and in locations where blooms are found.
