Dr. Tim Davis of the NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory joins Ian Hughes of Goose Island for a discussion of the question, "Why are our lakes the same color as our lawns?"

Dr. Timothy Davis has spent the last 10 years studying the ecology of harmful algal blooms (HABs) through the NOAA's Great Lakes HAB and hypoxia research program
Dr. Davis completed his Bachelor's of Science at Southampton College of Long Island University in 2004.  He then moved to Stony Brook University where he conducted his dissertation research focusing on understanding the environmental drivers of HABs in the several lakes throughout the northeast USA including Lake Erie and Lake Champlain.  After he completed his dissertation in 2009, Dr. Davis moved to Brisbane, Australia to continue his work at the Australian Rivers Institute.  He spent the next two years studying the ecology of the toxic HABs that occur in drinking water reservoirs that serve the greater Brisbane population of almost two million people.  In 2012, Dr. Davis moved to the Canadian Center for Inland Waters in Burlington, Ontario.  For the next year he investigated the water quality and harmful algal bloom issues in Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Lake Huron and Lake Winnipeg.   Dr. Davis currently works for NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) in Ann Arbor, MI.  He leads GLERL's HAB monitoring and research program which supports critical NOAA HAB forecasting products and is also an adjunct research scientist at the University of Michigan.

Welcome and thanks to Dr. Davis, Ian Hughes and all the other volunteer speakers!
