Project Description

When harmful algal blooms like red tide algae grow and disintegrate along the Texas coast their neurotoxins may become an aerosol causing adverse effects that can significantly increase emergency room traffic and visits to doctors. Texas HAB Data Integration Project will team up Texas researchers with expertise in HABs and medical researchers familiar with data about the effects of HABs on humans to work together to better prepare first responders, emergency rooms and the medical system in responding to red tide events, minimizing human health risks.
