Harmful Algal Blooms in the Great Lakes

How Citizens and Scientists Work Together to Understand the Problem

After 5 After 5
What are Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), and why are they harmful to the Great Lakes? Why have recent outbreaks returned, and what is their impact on water quality and the ecosystem of the Great Lakes? Devin Gill is an outreach specialist for the University of Michigan’s Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research, one of 16 academic institutes across the U.S. that conducts research in support of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Her role is to create opportunities for the public to participate in Great Lakes research and facilitate communication between citizens and scientists. Devin will provide background on HABs and her work to involve citizens in the design of HAB forecasts, so that Great Lakes research can better meet the needs of society.

This After 5 presentation does not require Osher Lifelong Learning Institute membership and is open to the public.
