Collected Taihu stations today and was amazed at how buoyant the cyanos (mostly Microcystis) are right now. Within 30 seconds they went from a shaken suspended state to surface scum formation. Have a look.
Hey folks: Here’s some real bloom dynamics at Taihu. No photoshop stuff!! ☺
Within a week here the bloom has gone from bright green N sufficient to N limited, and last year we tested it with a 2- day nutrient addition bioassay, where we were able to make it N sufficient again by adding NO3. All the green Cubitainers received N.
