Workshop Reports

  • Public Health Workshop Report St. Petersburg, FL, January 23-25, 2006
  • A National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS)-supported workshop convened forty-nine experts, including scientists, coastal and inland resource and human health managers, communication experts, and social scientists, to develop a strategy for improving and implementing Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) prediction and response. Findings of the workshop held June 25-28 in Woods Hole, MA, will be published in a report on priorities for improving critical infrastructure, developing and implementing prevention, control, and mitigation strategies, and improving “rapid” event response capabilities. The diverse backgrounds of participants allowed the integration of scientific expertise with that of managers and human dimensions researchers. The report will form the basis of the National Scientific Research, Development, Demonstration, and Technology Transfer Plan on Reducing Impacts from HABs, required by the 2004 reauthorization of the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Act.
