NOAA HAB Forecast System Serves as a Model for Similar Capabilities in Mexico

The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science presented NOAA’s HAB Forecasting System at the 2 nd Bi-national Meeting of the U.S. and Mexico in Campeche, Mexico on October 18-19 and discussed mechanisms for establishing a similar capability in Mexico. Scientists engaged in oral presentations and additional discussions to further the collaboration between the U.S. and Mexico for development of the sampling and modeling tools necessary to establish a HAB forecast system. Other meeting participants included NOAA’s National Data Buoy Center, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Naval Research Laboratory, Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, and several Mexican state, academic, and government institutions, including the Mexican Navy and the Federal Commission for the Protection Against Sanitary Risk (COFEPRIS).
