Blog on Picturing Algal Blooms

EPA’s Office of Research and Development has posted a blog on the recent National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) Algal Bloom Photo Contest. NEEF and EPA are partnering to bring public attention to nutrient pollution and its association with algal blooms. Nutrient pollution is one of America’s most widespread, costly, and challenging environmental problems. Algal blooms are a visible manifestation of nutrient pollution.  The NEEF Algal Bloom Photo Contest was part of the 2014 Harmful Algal Blooms Education and Awareness Campaign. Read the blog here.
