Pseudo-Nitzschia Probability

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

With NASA funding, UCSC researchers and CeNCOOS have been working to operationalize a predictive Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) model for the region. Nowcasts (current state) and forecasts (future states) from this model of Pseudo-nitzschia (a marine diatom) blooms and Domoic Acid (the potentially harmful biotoxin Pseudo-nitzschia releases) probabilities are available daily along the California coast. Predicted "nowcasts" of harmful algal bloom (HAB) conditions are created through a combination of sophisticated circulation models that predict the ocean physics, satellite remote-sensing data of the ocean "color" and chlorophyll patterns, and statistical models for predicting bloom and toxin likelihoods. These predictions are generated daily to provide a snapshot of where you might encounter a Pseudo-nitzschia bloom and/or domoic acid event. Forecasts - Predictions of harmful algal bloom (HAB) conditions are created through a combination of sophisticated circulation models that predict the ocean physics, satellite remote-sensing data of the ocean "color" and chlorophyll patterns, and statistical models for predicting bloom and toxin likelihoods. These predictions are generated daily to provide a forecast of where you might encounter a Pseudo-nitzschia bloom and/or domoic acid event in the next one to three days.
