Introduction to Reporting Limits

Beverly H. van Burren, Marine Pollution Studies Laboratory

January 25th, 2017 12pm- 1 pm

Reporting limits (RLs) are crucial to environmental project planning and the production, review, and assessment of analytical data. A failure to consider RLs in any of these stages may result in data that are neither scientifically nor legally defensible.

Because each environmental project has a unique set of objectives, analytical capabilities, and applicable regulations, it must also have unique RLs for each of its target analytes and parameters. This course will give an introduction to the process for establishing project-appropriate RLs, and will clarify the relationship between RLs and related terms like method detection limits, minimum levels, practical quantitation limits, and action limits. Finally, it will identify key lines of communication between project, field, and laboratory personnel. More information about the webinar here.

Freshwater CyanoHAB Public Workshop

February 24, 2016

North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board- Santa Rosa, California

In recent years, there has been an increased frequency and severity of freshwater cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (cyanoHABs) around the world, including the North Coast Region.  The Regional Water Board has received reports of nuisance blooms and algal scums, animal illnesses & death, and on occasion, human health impacts within the North Coast. A public workshop on freshwater cyanoHABs in North Coast waterways will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. February 24th at the Regional Water Board’s office located at 5550 Skylane Blvd, Suite A, Santa Rosa, 95403.  The workshop will discuss monitoring, assessment and response strategies for freshwater cyanoHABs, and provide information on the prevalence and effects of cyanoHABs. Agencies and entities responsible for drinking water, public health, and recreational water safety in the North Coast Region are encouraged to attend. 

Reports, resources, and presentations from the workshop can be viewed here

Webinar: Applications of Molecular Tools for Cyanobacterial Monitoring and Management

 January 21, 2016 from 1:30 - 3:00 pm

Presenter: Dr. Tim Otten

We have witnessed major advances in our understanding of cyanobacteria genetics. Please join us in learning about commercial genetic tests available for monitoring and management of cyanobacteria Harmful Algal Blooms (CyanoHABs). The genetic tests utilize quantitative PCR (qPCR) for detection and quantification of genes that produce toxins and taste & odor compounds. The presenter will also describe a new quick screening assay (<10mins) for assessing the presence of various unfavorable genes in a single sample.

Visualizing Hydropower and Interbasin Transfer Schemes in the Mekong River Basin

 January 25, 2016 at 4:00 pm

 

Location: Humboldt State University, Natural Resources Building, room 101

 

Presenter: Alan Potkin, Northern Illinois University

 

Humboldt State University's River Institute continues it's seminar series with a talk on hydropower development principally within the Mekong River Basin. Alteration in the mainstem Mekong River’s annual hydrograph - from expanding hydropower regulation - could be significantly affecting fish migration in ways unanticipated. Dr. Potkin will demonstrate how applying videos, stitched virtual reality panoramas, Google Earth-based 3D simulated fly-throughs, and time-series renderings can improve all aspects of hydropower/fisheries planning in the four Mekong River Commission (MRC) countries.

Webinar: Continuous Monitoring to Mitigate TMDL Trauma

October 21, 2015 at 11 AM PDT

 Register here for this free Webinar

Highlights: When local governments face extreme costs to improve water quality, they must first clearly understand the real sources of impairment. Continuous water quality monitoring provides high resolution data for many parameters to evaluate not only long term trends, but real-time illicit discharges that can be tracked to the source. Attend this webinar to learn how you can meet NPDES permit requirements effectively with continuous water quality monitoring.

Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel-

Changing Ocean Chemistry: From Science to Decision-Making 

October 29th, 2015
at 1 pm 

Google Hangout 

Changing ocean chemistry – including ocean acidification and declining oxygen levels – have the potential for profound impacts on marine environments. These issues present shared challenges, and managing for resilient ocean and coastal communities requires cooperation across academic, political, and jurisdictional boundaries. In this Google Hangout, we’ll speak with leading experts in the science-policy landscape working to inform solutions to the threats posed by changing ocean chemistry.

Summer Webinar Series to Build Awareness About 
Harmful Algal Blooms and Nutrient Pollution

May 29th, 2014 

 10 am - 12 pm

 Join us on May 29, 2014 for The Role of Citizen Scientists in Harmful Algal Bloom Monitoring and Response, the first in an exciting series of free summer webinars about this worsening environmental problem and public health threat. Steve Morton from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Scott Kishbaugh and Karen Stainbrook from New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation will begin the series with a discussion of their involvement with volunteer monitoring initiatives, and how the American public can get involved in a project to monitor for potentially toxic algal species and collect meaningful data from their local water bodies for use in decision-making by a local, state, or federal agency.
