Biodiesel Fuel FROM ALGAE!! (((((( YES TO ALGAL FUELS! I have changed my mind, since I have found much more information: I no longer believe that global warming is caused mainly by increased carbon dioxide. The planet IS changing temperature in some ways, but its cause is way different from what is being pushed in the media now. Each planet has its own special orbit, tilt, and movment in space, and the earth's relationship to the sun, and other radiation sources and factors; is varying in cycles - so each planet rises and falls in temperature, in its own special cycle, on its own special timing. (for example, what's happening on Jupiter or Mars, is not what's happening on earth.) Humans do not have the power to alter the warming and cooling trends of this planet - it is all about natural cycles that we need to ADAPT TO. Remember, the world has experienced hot and cold ages before, without man causing it (Ice Age, etc). The earth has certainly warmed up since then without the man-introduced carbon to cause it. However, petroleum and coal are both still toxic and nasty, and we need to replace them entirely with green, safe fuels as soon as possible. Amazingly, the super-high cost of fuel now, is increasing interest in developing alternative fuels that are NON-FOOD CROPS, and do not compete with the production of food. Over $4.00 a gallon for fuel, eh? Well THAT factor will have many people working to develop alternative fuels! This is what we've been waiting for - petroleum is now offically economically unfeasible. We can get ...
Algal Blooms Hit Center Stage Algae grows naturally in lakes, rivers and ponds, and in the ocean, often along coastlines. What scientists say they don't know is what triggers massive blooms like one seen recently in Qingdao, China -- or why some blooms are harmful or toxic while others are not. To learn more about toxic algae, we spent a day in the Mid-Atlantic US State of Maryland with research scientist Celia Dawson. VOA's Paul Sisco reports.

SeaTalk - What is a Harmful Algal Bloom? If you live near water, you may have heard the term harmful algal bloom. HABs, as theyre called, are caused by a small group of micro-organisms that grow rapidly under certain environmental conditions.
Marine Algal Blooms as Renewable Fuel Sources An entry in NASA Langley's Green Video Idea Contest: Marine algal blooms, like those in the Gulf of Mexico are often human-imposed and create hypoxic zones that lower dissolved oxygen levels in the water. They may represent a renewable energy source that can double in 24 hours. Algae have oils that can be used for fuels like biodiesel. My thesis idea ties remote sensing using NASA's MODIS sensors and bomb calorimetry data from samples of algae together with GIS. Raster calculations in the GIS can estimate how much energy potential is available in any given bloom of sufficient size. My entire undergrad thesis is posted here:
Algal Blooms in the Sound The swedish summers are frequently accompanied by alarming reports of toxic algal blooms in the waters. Scientist Per Carlsson and his two assistants, Karine Bresolin and Kristoffer Layton, examine these toxic algaes. Follow them on a boat trip in the Sound between Denmark and Sweden.
Predicting Harmful Algal Blooms Learn how NOAA's Integrated Ocean Observing System tracks and predicts harmful algal blooms using satellites in space, buoys on the surface of the ocean, and sensors on the ocean floor. Harmful algal blooms, or HABs, occur when colonies of algae—simple ocean plants that live in the sea—grow out of control while producing toxic or harmful effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals and birds. The human illnesses caused by HABs, though rare, can be debilitating or even fatal. "Predicting Harmful Algal Blooms" is just one of many exciting videos on The Ocean Today Kiosk. For full effect, visit the Ocean Today Kiosk at the Smithsonian Institution's Sant Ocean Hall or at an aquarium near you. Original source: oceanservice.noaa.gov .

Algal Bloom Monitoring in Reservoir with YSI Vertical Profiler A YSI Vertical Profler is deployed near a drinking water intake to monitor blue-green algae. When an aglal bloom is detected at a specific depth, the system notifies drinking water plant so action can be taken.
Fishcam algal bloom Blooms may be observed in freshwater aquariums when fish are overfed and excess nutrients are not absorbed by plants. These are not generally harmful for fish, and the situation can be corrected by changing the water in the tank and then reducing the amount of food given. See also:

The causes and consequences of harmful algal blooms in East African lakes EEB Graduate student Christopher Johnson talks about his research, "the causes and consequences of harmful algal blooms on lesser flamingos in the Great Rift Valley, in Kenya. Flamingo mass die-offs have been increasing recently, which has been attributed to harmful algal blooms in polluted lakes. I study the ecological conditions that promote harmful algal blooms in these lakes, with the goal of developing management plans to reduce the risk of lesser flamingo mass die-offs due to harmful algal blooms."

The search for peyssonnelioid red algal crusts in the Zapatillas, Bocas del Toro, Panama This video shows some non-coralline red algal crusts placed in the family Peyssonneliaceae (Peyssonneliales) in the Zapatillas, Bocas del Toro, Caribbean Panama. Other peyssonnelioid crusts only superfiiclally resemble Peyssonnelia and belong to other red algal familes and orders. The first part of the vide clip focuses on the crusts, the middle part on other green, red and brown leafy seaweeds an corallines, and the clip ends with some views of smaller turf algae inhabiting a patch reef dominated by stony corals, sponges, gorgonians and zoanthids. Filmed by Suzanne Fredericq at about 40-30 ft. depth, August 24th, 2009. Away from the immediate vicinity of the patch reef, most of the algae were covered under a blanket of silt and detritus. Filming took place during the NSF-funded Pan American Advanced Studies Institute: Advanced Methods in Tropical Phycology Workshop, Aug. 14-Sept. 4, 2009 (Rachel Collin, PI; Brian Wysor & S.

Fuzzhugger (fx): Algal Bloom Fuzz You are listening to a stock 2008 Music Man Axis running to an Achillies Amplification '59 Bassman clone. Tom and Julie Dalton's Algal Bloom fuzz is a mean little beast indeed. It is capable of tones that range from drive to sputter and everything in between. There are 4 controls GAIN: Adjusts the amount of signal that reaches the heart of the pedal. As you back it off, things get a bit cleaner but also gain a hint of sputter and fizzle. Hard right is full-on! FUZZ (Bloom): A huge, searing gain control that expands and pushes your fuzz tone, adding gain, sustain, and definition. VOLT (Texture): Limits the amount of power that reaches the circuit, creating some beautifully sick fuzz textures that mimic a dying battery. LEVEL: Your master volume control. This Algal Bloom also has the 'Germanium Choke Toggle' option (push/pull on the 'Volt' knob). This lets you swap the diode to Germanium resulting in a slightly different and grittier, raspier texture. Now you can set the Gain and Fuzz controls so notes die out early. Another point to note is that the Algal Bloom works great with bass as well. I'll be uploading a bass demo in the near future. Algal Blooms come in variety of incredible case finishes and you would be wise to periodically check for updates and availability. Special thanks to Tom and Julie for this demo unit. Again, check out http for more info and watch out for the bass demo, coming soon. Cheers, BK2010 ☺

LLyn Padarn Algal Bloom Llyn Padarn is a Site of Special Scientific Interest on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. The lake is important for Arctic charr or Torgoch (Salvelinus alpinus), a rare fish in Wales. In May 2009 a toxic blue-green algal bloom usually caused by excess nutrients was reported from the lake for the first time. The bloom lasted all summer and resulted in the lake being closed as a recreation area. The bloom also caused deoxygenation of the water column, reducing the available habitat for charr. Water quality improvements and translocation options for the charr are under consideration.

Overfishing linked to harmful algal blooms -Protecting soils to help combat climate change -Overfishing linked to algal blooms A new study by Swedish researchers found that, along with nitrogenous runoff from livestock raising and agriculture, algal blooms in the Baltic Sea are linked to the decline of certain species of large fish. Specifically, the research showed that if perch and pike fish populations were healthy and no nitrogen pollution existed, the surrounding waters had only a 10% chance of being afflicted by an algal bloom. However, in areas where fishing had caused their populations to be substantially reduced, the chances of an algal bloom went up to 50%. The researchers believe that the increase is related to a disruption of the food chain, which in turn affects the ecosystem. Swedish scientists, we appreciate your work that sheds new light on our oceanic environments.

Algal Turf Scrubber _Proven Large Scale Algae Production and Water Treatment Systems History and Background on the Algal Turf Scrubber Water Treatment Technology
Algal blooms in the Baltic Sea Algal blooms in the Baltic Sea are intensified when excess nutrients are deposited in the water and massively over stimulate growth. The nutrients mostly come from unsustainable farming practices in the countries around the Baltic. The algae can make people and animals sick and severely damage the Baltic ecosystem. Join WWF and tell the EU to stop subsidising farming practices that lead to algal blooms. /balticmarinerescue
FuzzHugger (fx) Algal Bloom - fuzz pedal! - (new demo!) The Algal Bloom is a super thick, harmonically rich, searing new fuzz pedal.
