NOAA Awards Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution $540K for Future Harmful Algal Bloom Monitoring and Research

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced today it is providing $540,000 to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to support continuing harmful algal bloom research. The grant comes as scientists and coastal managers aim to better understand the causes and impacts of harmful algal blooms in New England waters. New England is currently recovering from the largest bloom since 1972 of Alexandrium Fundeyense, a microscopic algae commonly known as red tide.
