NOAA Awards Funds to Improve Toxic Algal Bloom Predictions in the Western Gulf of Mexico
NOAA is awarding $178,358 for the first year of a project to improve predictions of toxic algal blooms in the western Gulf of Mexico as part of an evolving national ecological forecasting capability. NOAA anticipates a nearly $1 million investment in this large-scale regional project over the next four years. The project is funded by the interagency Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms, or ECOHAB, program.
Funded partners in this project include Texas A&M University, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and NOAA
