Dr. Rick Stumpf from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Center for Coastal Ocean Science presented a seminar and then met with interested BREE researchers on September 17, 2018. The title of his seminar was "Satellites and Cyanobacteria Monitoring in Lake Erie and Elsewhere."
Dr. Stumpf is one of the world's foremost experts on satellite monitoring of cyanobacteria blooms. He has played a major role in developing the bloom forecasting systems for Lake Erie and elsewhere around the country. The seminar and subsequent interactions between BREE researchers and Dr. Stumpf could further collaboration with the Lake Champlain and Lake Erie systems.
