Blue-green scene: Hear the latest algal bloom science

Learn the latest on Lake Erie’s blue-green befoulers at Understanding Algal Blooms: State of the Science, a Sept. 15 conference in Toledo.

The event, according to its website, will “highlight current scientific knowledge about algal blooms: model predictions, updated best management practices and water treatment methods to remove toxins.” Featured will be about a dozen presentations in three areas of focus by researchers from universities, agencies and nonprofits in Ohio and beyond. There will be question time and a student poster session, too.

Co-hosting the conference are Chris Winslow, interim director of the Ohio State-based Ohio Sea Grant program, and CFAES’s Jay Martin (head of the Field to Faucet initiative), Greg LaBarge and Kevin King.

Registration is $20 and is limited to 500 registrants. Student admission is free.
