December 2015, Kick-off meeting

More than 60 people gathered at NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory on December 15, 2015 to share research, ideas, and information needs related to HABs in the Great Lakes. Five key themes emerged from that meeting as deserving more focused attention:  Toxicity;  N-Cycling; Mythbusters; Common Conceptual Model; and Communications.
