On Jan. 14, NCCOS researchers Steve Morton and Rick Stumpf were featured speakers at an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) webinar focused on inland harmful algal blooms. The event was part of an EPA webinar series intended to build awareness about the effects of nutrient pollution and harmful algal blooms on the environment. Dr. Morton provided attendees with an introduction to the NOAA Phytoplankton Monitoring Network, and Dr. Stumpf presented NOAA’s efforts on satellite-based forecasting of inland harmful algal blooms. The webinar had an audience of over 100 people from across the country, spanning federal and state government agencies, universities, NGOs, private companies, and the general public.
