UF study: Human activity provides nutrients for longer, stronger red tides
CCS research finds that nitrogen inputs from human activity intensified red tide events
In a new study that is the first to explain what some have long suspected, researchers found that human activity helps sustain and intensify naturally occurring red tide blooms in Southwest Florida.
CCS AWARDED $2.3 million MULTI-INSTITUTION GRANT TO STUDY HARMFUL ALGAL BLOOMS
CCS Associate Director Dr. David Kaplan, and a team of CCS-affiliated scientists and engineers from UF, the USF, NCSU, and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation have received $2.3 million from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to study how water and nutrients flowing from Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee River watershed interact with tides, currents, and waves at the coast to affect coastal water quality.
ADVISORY BOARD SPOTLIGHT: Dr. Kate Hubbard
Dr. Kate Hubbard, who leads the harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring and research program for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWC-FWRI), has recently joined the CCS Advisory Board. She directs FWC’s Center for… Read More
