Aerosol Collection in Brewster, MA | Hailey Carter

Aerosols from freshwater lakes with toxigenic cyanobacteria pose a potentially serious threat to humans and wildlife. Toxic aerosols are emitted by a wide range of lakes, but the mechanisms of cyanobacterial aerosolization are unknown. In order to further understand how to estimate exposure, aerosol collection carried out on Cape Cod by members of the citizen based Cape Cod Cyanobacterial Monitoring Project. The overall goal of this project is to compare air and water conditions with rates of toxic aerosol production in selected lakes.
