GlobalHAB/EuroMarine Workshop on Modelling and Prediction of Harmful Algal Blooms

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganiser of major conference


The global impact of harmful algal blooms (HABs) stretches across many economic sectors, from fishing and aquaculture, to tourism, to subsistence harvest and food security. Prediction of HABs is a grand challenge that requires multidisciplinary dialogue among physical scientists, biologists, computer modellers, and technologists, as well as community stakeholders and the government and industry end-users of prediction systems. This 4-day workshop brought together 39 scientists from 17 countries for a combination of oral and poster presentations, round-table discussions, and tutorials, in order to increase awareness of the range of modelling and observational tools that are in our community toolbox, and help scientists and technologists develop creative approaches to meeting the needs of coastal communities, governments, and industry worldwide.
