Microbial research to be presented at MNMRCM

Neil Rhoads will be presenting at the Maui Nui Marine Resource Council on Wednesday, February 1 2017, 5-7pm at Pacific Whale Foundation, Ma’alaea.

Guest Presentation:

As a follow-up to their recent paper analyzing DOH data for nutrient impairment in Maui coastal waters, Neil Rhoads will be showing some preliminary results for their forthcoming paper. The data spans 28 years and includes 20-30 sites from each of West Maui, South Maui, and North Shore Maui. Interesting patterns are starting to emerge, and they may not be what you expect!

KCA raising funds for microbial paper

Kihei Community Association is raising funds to sponsor the follow-up paper on Maui Water Quality, an Assessment of Microbiological Data.

The recent news on pollutants in the ocean water we love is shocking, but we still don’t know which areas are unsafe to swim in or if they are getting better or worse.

Let’s get the data analyzed!

We have scientists ready to process the ocean samples collected by the
Department of Health. We need your help to make it happen. Your tax-
deductible donation to the KCA Water Quality Study will help get us there.
