Ninth U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae Features NCCOS Research

Published on: 12/21/2017

The biennial U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae provides a comprehensive look at harmful algae and its impacts on the United States marine and freshwater environment. At the 9th US Symposium on Harmful Algae, November 11-17, 2017, Baltimore MD, NCCOS scientific presentations were prominent and NCCOS funded about half of the research presented at the conference.

Highlighting the conference was a special session led by NCCOS featuring talks on NOAA HAB research and event response, an update on Congressional reauthorization of the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Act (HABHRCA), observing networks, competitive research, and NOAA ecological forecasting.

The conference National Organizing Committee honored long-time NCCOS Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR) Director, Dr. Rob Magnien, for his service and leadership with a special award of appreciation.

The conference National Organizing Committee included NCCOS’ Quay Dortch and Marc Suddleson.
