The SOS Harmful Algo-Bloom Hotline
The SOS NAB-A-HAB team responds to reports of possible Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB’s) on the HAB Hotline, provides on-site HAB identification, relays positive HAB discoveries to saveoursodus.com as well as the SOS & Village of Sodus Point Facebook pages. SOS provides this service to the community free of charge, using the ioLight microscope. The device interfaces with a cellphone app to provide rapid identification of the HAB sample on-site. NAB-A-HAB volunteers share the ioLight microscope to respond independently to the HAB hotline for 'on call' weekly shifts throughout the summer season.
