Harmful Algal Blooms

Harmful Algal Blooms, various articles and interviews have been generated and published by Alejandro Buschmann and Patricio Diaz from the i-mar Center about the blooming of harmful algae in different places in southern Chile, from Bio Bio to the Patagonia. They exposed the risks and social, environmental and economic impacts of these increasingly frequent phenomena, alerting the authorities of the need to generate governance to tackle the problem in a preventive manner. cada-vez-ms-frecuentes/?fbclid=IwAR2lYbCZoOC-uotR-YCRiy3XKUZzXpcnRm3AAzPn-HMvV01-
Recently the group in Antofagasta has been awarded with the Project “Fanti- Ciencia, sueños y cuentos de la ciencia”, of Concurso Nacional de Proyectos Ciencia Pública de divulgación y socialización del conocimiento 2020 financed by ANID (Project CP200197). Due to administrative incompatibilities I could not formally assume Direction of this Project, and therefore ex CEBIB members lead this Project, and Martha Hengst finally participated as expert scientific advisor.
