OHHABS Summary Report Published , United States, 2019

This summary report published by the CDC, describes the 2019 US data on harmful algal bloom (HAB) events and associated human or animal illnesses collected through the One Health Harmful Algal Bloom System (OHHABS).

Harmful Algal Blooms and Ocean Acidification Workshop: Defining a Research Agenda

This report describes the results of a NOAA and NCCOS workshop from August 11-13, 2020, focused on interactions between stressors such as HABs and Ocean Acidification.

Proceedings of the Workshop on the Socio-economic Effects of Harmful Algal Blooms in the United States

The NCCOS Competitive Research Program (CRP) and the U.S. National Office for Harmful Algal Blooms released this report in March 2021. The report documents the proceedings of a 2020 workshop and presents recommendations to advance an assessment framework and a national research agenda that will lead to comprehensive evaluations of the social and economic effects of HABs in the fresh (primarily the Great Lakes) and marine waters of the United States.

This effort was led by the IOOS Association with input from NOAA, NGOs, and academic institutions.
