Here we begin a series of workshops focusing on new technologies in harmful algal bloom (HAB) research and monitoring. The first workshop in this series will include lectures and integrated demonstrations of new methods in organism detection with concentrated information on HAB species. This workshop will describe equipment and methods from the following list: environmental sampling platform (ESP), FloCam, sandwich hybridization assay (SHA), qPCR, FISH, and in situ sensors including gliders. This series will continue in the future with demonstrations on automated nutrient samplers, modeling, remote sensing, and other techniques.
