Url: http://www.bigelow.org/edhab/building_bloom.html
Publisher: Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences
Description: This activity will help students understand algal blooms. They will devise their own experiments to test the effects of nutrients on algal growth, or younger students may follow the steps outlined in a sample activity which is provided. Students will be reminded that they need to have controls and replicates in their experiments. As a result of this activity, students will come to understand the requirements for algal growth, understand the factors that influence the occurrence and duration of algal blooms, and appreciate the diversity of algae in the marine environment.
