New grant: What makes algal blooms turn toxic?

Justin Chaffin, research scientist with Ohio State’s Ohio Sea Grant program and Stone Lab, and partners in Ohio and Michigan have received a nearly $250,000 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant to study what causes Lake Erie algal blooms to turn toxic.

Chaffin holds a partial appointment with CFAES. He talks about another of his algal bloom studies, this one aided by a team of Lake Erie charter boat captains/citizen scientists, in the video above.
