Develop Forecasting Predictive Models Improving Coastal and Human Health and Beach Forecasting

Through this project we will work to develop and put into place an advanced prediction of water quality at swimming beaches up to two days in advance. This will enable environmental and public health officials to notify the public of expected water quality one to two days in advance thereby 1) preventing beach closures when conditions are safe, avoiding economic and recreational losses, and 2) closing beaches when bacterial levels are likely to be high. The methods will also be used for forecasting the trajectory and fate of harmful algal blooms in the Great Lakes.
