SCIENCE IN SHORT: Hullabalo Over HABs: A Science-in-Short Interview with Keith Bouma-Gregson

As California’s drought deepens, harmful algal blooms have been on the rise in the San Francisco Estuary. In this episode of science-in-short from Estuary News, Keith Bouma-Gregson, a biologist with the US Geological Survey, explains the science basics behind these sometimes toxic, sometimes deadly, events in our waterways, as well as the differences between Delta and Bay HABs and how climate change could increase the bloom period. Produced by Ariel Rubissow Okamoto and Callie Rhoades, with music by Peter Rubissow, and support from the Delta Stewardship Council.
