Physical and biological data collected along the Texas, Mississippi, and Florida Gulf coasts in the Gulf of Mexico as part of the Harmful Algal BloomS Observing System from 19 Aug 1953 to 11 July 2014 (NODC Accession 0120767)

HABSOS (Harmful Algal BloomS Observing System) is a data collection and distribution system for harmful algal bloom (HAB) information in the Gulf of Mexico. The goal of HABSOS is to provide environmental managers, scientists, and the public with a data driven resource for HAB events. Cell counts and environmental information are combined into a single product and distributed on a map powered by ArcGIS and visualized at http://service.ncddc.noaa.gov/website/AGSViewers/HABSOS/maps.htm. HABSOS strives to provide the most accurate picture of harmful algal bloom location and quantity by using the latest sample data available.

Purpose: To give historical data about the presence of harmful algal blooms, based on cell count.

Data here contain data from Texas, Mississippi, and Florida, as well as data along the Florida Shelf in the Gulf of Mexico and along the eastern coast of Florida in the North Atlantic Ocean.
