Algae alert network underway

sirenA project called the Cyanobacteria Assessment Network, or CyAN, is developing an early warning system to detect toxic algal blooms in inland lakes across the U.S., reports a recent Columbus Dispatch story by James Steinbauer. Senior researcher Justin Chaffin of Ohio State’s Stone Lab on Lake Erie is quoted among others. The project involves the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Geological Survey, and NASA. More from EPA.
