From a press release today from our CFAES colleagues who work for Ohio Sea Grant:
“NOAA and its research partners are forecasting that western Lake Erie will experience a smaller-than-average harmful algal bloom this summer.”
“A relatively dry spring will lead to a repeat of last year’s mild bloom—this is the first time in more than a dozen years that mild blooms have occurred in consecutive summers.”

New technology using something called nanobubbles—tiny gas bubbles that are several thousand times smaller than a grain of sand—could help fight Ohio’s harmful algal blooms. Testing, with CFAES as a partner, is about to begin.
“This could be a game-changer for small lakes and reservoirs,” said Heather Raymond, director of the CFAES Water Quality Initiative.
