The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science's Phytoplankton Monitoring Network (PMN): Better Understanding of Harmful Algal Blooms Through Volunteer Monitoring

Over the years CoCoRaHS has tried to find ways for our volunteers to partner with other worthwhile science endeavors to broaden the scope of our observers experiences.

If you live near the coast (saltwater and fresh) or just have an interest all things marine, the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science's Phytoplankton Monitoring Network (PMN), might be a group you would be interested in.

The National Phytoplankton Monitoring Network (PMN) is a community-based network of volunteers monitoring marine phytoplankton and harmful algal blooms (HABs). PMN recognizes the interrelationships between humans and coastal ecosystems while providing volunteer citizen scientists with meaningful opportunities for hands-on science engagement. The PMN enhances the Nation’s ability to respond to and manage the growing threat posed by HABs by collecting important data for species composition and distribution in coastal waters and creating working relationships between volunteers and professional marine biotoxin researchers.
