Detection of Cyanobacteria in Massachusetts Lakes

The Functional “Nuts and Bolts” of an In Vitro Fluorometer (IVF) Designed to Determine Levels of Cyanobacteria in Lakes Across Massachusetts (Spring 2012).

After running the experiments, I prepared a presentation for DEP employees and community members working with cyanobacteria. This was my first exposure to harmful algal blooms.
