This Mote Marine Laboratory magazine article details a new study by Sarasota Operations Coastal Oceans Observation Lab (SO COOL) that is using technology to track harmful algal blooms (HABs). Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are equipped with temperature and salinity meters as well as a "Breve-buster," which is an instrument that collects water samples and determines levels of red-tide causing algae by shining a light through the sample and noting the light absorbing characteristics within the sample (indicative of these algae).
