We’re proud to be partnering with FAU Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute on a new project monitoring toxic algae in Lake Okeechobee. GCOOS will develop a web-based platform for visualizing bloom extent, intensities and the results of environmental characterization and modeling. The $2.2 million grant for the project comes from the state of Florida following recommendations by its Blue-Green Algae Task Force.
