Grappling with a Bloom

MIT/WHOI Joint Program graduate student Christie Wood (foreground) and postdoctoral investigator Alfredo Aretxabaleta prepare to recover the conductivity-temperature-depth rosette during the NOAA Rapid Response cruise to study red tide in June 2006. For the past four years, WHOI scientists have been intensively studying the harmful algae Alexandrium and other species that can contaminate shellfish and sicken humans. Researchers are departing today on another expedition to look back at the past season and look ahead for the seeds of 2008.
