Presentation Title
Basins to Blooms: Modeling Drivers and Consequences of Nutrient Loading in Fresh and Coastal Waters


Abstract

The disproportionate concentration of human populations along coasts and river mouths make coastal basins hotspots of change. One of the most visible ways in which mounting human pressures translate into negative consequences for coastal and estuarine ecosystems is through changes in nutrient and phytoplankton concentrations. This presentation will highlight results from recent studies that applied mechanistic and statistical models to analyze phytoplankton bloom dynamics, and summarize ongoing multi-scale research that seeks to inform bloom mitigation strategies in fresh and coastal waters.
