Harmful algal blooms, otherwise known as "red tides," are of growing concern in coastal waters worldwide, including Chesapeake Bay. VIMS professor Kim Reece, a member of Virginia's Harmful Algal Bloom Task Force, explores the human activities and natural factors that encourage microscopic algae to form dense blooms, and the effects that some of these blooms can have on marine life and human health.

The lecture is the September installment of the After Hours lecture series for 2016.

Reservations to this free public lecture series are required due to limited space. Call 804-684-7061 for further information.
