Using measurements taken from New England waters during the bloom, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) produced a computer-modeled “hindcast” of the 2005 bloom. This image shows the modeled distribution of Alexandrium for May 15, 2005, with red showing the highest concentration of cells and blue the lowest.
