Focusing specifically on harmful algal blooms (HABs), this project will quantify the linkages between economic outcomes and Gulf of Mexico coastal health. Economic metrics representing tourism, housing sales, and fishing activity will be collected and analyzed and GIS data will be used to enhance temporal resolution of HAB data impacts. A dashboard tool will be developed to allow resource managers easy access to high quality HAB data and economic outcomes. The team will also host a workshop and webinars to share the dashboard and project results.
