Workshop on real-time coastal observing systems for ecosystem dynamics and harmful algal blooms

Objective

Development of a harmful algal bloom is a result of interactions between physiological characteristics of the species as well as the physical and chemical processes in its growth environment. Therefore, dynamics of the blooms cannot be studied without integration of different observation approaches, instrumentations and methodologies. Real time observations form the basis for adaptive sampling in fields studies. Data from various sensing systems need to be integrated into models. There is a great deal of interest throughout the world in the installation of coastal ocean observation systems with capabilities for detection and prediction of HABs. Many of the approaches are unfamiliar to potential users. Therefore, we propose to organise a workshop to make possible the dissemination of the most up-to-date knowledge on coastal observing systems to the community that is directly involved in HAB research, monitoring and management.
