Vibrio Predictive Models

Primary Contact(s): john.jacobs@noaa.gov

By combining state of the art hydrodynamic models with specific algorithms for Vibrio (a foodborne bacteria that causes gastroenteritis or worse), we can provide early warning of these potential coastal hazards.

 Aquaculture application: Models have been assembled to predict safe harvest of shellfish around the nation. Knowing where and when to expect elevated concentrations of Vibrio, and environmental conditions that promote rapid growth can inform both management and individual grower harvest decision making.
