Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to compile existing data sets so as to characterize normal and excessive (blooms) phytoplankton conditions and to determine the location, extent, impacts and factors contributing to the blooms in water bodies of interest to the NY/NJ Harbor Estuary Program. There are four major monitoring programs from which data were obtained: the New York City, Harbor Survey, New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP); the Interstate Sanitation Commission (ISSC); the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) in conjunction with the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA); and the Gateway National Park, National Park Service (NPS). The compiled data addresses the following topics:Chlorophyll a- Index of Phytoplankton Abundance, Phytoplankton Species and Biomass, Bloom Conditions Versus Environmental & Water Quality Variables, Algal Bloom Index: Nature of Bloom Impacts and Historical Analysis of Bloom Impacts.
