SOCAN Science Working Group Chair and Mote Marine Lab Scientist Emily Hall has recently joined forces with Kate Hubbard (Mote) to add carbonate chemistry collections to a SECOORA-funded harmful algal bloom project in the Gulf of Mexico. The project seeks to understand Florida Red tides in relation to nutrients. The addition of carbonate chemistry measurements to the project will help scientists understand how acidification can affect harmful algal bloom abundance and distribution. Stay tuned to learn more as the project develops!
