A so-called ‘algae bank’ at the Scottish Association for Marine Science in Oban is embarking on the mammoth task of checking all 3,000 of its colourful, slimy samples to make sure that they have been correctly identified.

Air Pollution Modelling Could Help Predict Algal Blooms

EU – Models that predict how nitrogen from the air is deposited in the sea could be useful in predicting algal blooms. Based on the knowledge that excess nitrogen increases algal growth rates, researchers simulated nitrogen deposition in the North Sea and suggested that, using predicted weather Continue reading Air Pollution Modelling Could Help Predict Algal Blooms
