It’s Blooming in Lake Erie

Our lab troops (Malcolm, Haley, Jeremy) are currently  conducting nutrient bioassays, determining which nutrients are responsible for the current toxic cyanobacterial bloom spreading through Lake Erie (see URL below). This is part of the NSF-NIH supported Oceans and Human Health Lake Erie Center, that we are part of.  Talk about good timing!!

Felix Evans Honor Thesis

For her honors thesis Felix prepares  a bioassay where she  hopes to determine a relationship between harmful algal bloom formation and changes to salinity in the Chowan River of coastal North Carolina, in light of climate change-driven changes to hydrologic event patterns.
