Phytoplankton Monitoring Network
- Point of Contact
As a NOAA-sponsored outreach program, the Phytoplankton Monitoring Network (PMN) teaches students, teachers, and the general public about phytoplankton and harmful algal blooms. Volunteers sample various sites along the coasts of many different states, from Hawaii to Massachusetts, and in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
This interactive map provides access to information collected by the Phytoplankton Monitoring Network volunteers. Map users can access data from 2001 through the present. The map also allows the user to create queries to derive specific information on 40 different species of phytoplankton.
