Buffalo News front page article reports on UB study on effects of algae in Great Lakes

Published June 30, 2014

An article on the front page of the Buffalo News reports on a new UB study about the harmful effects of algae in the Great Lakes, and interviews Berat Haznedaroglu, assistant professor of civil, structural and environmental engineering. “Sunlight has a certain disinfectant property,” he said. “The algae being on top of the surface somehow creates a protective habitat from sunlight, so their survival in the water gets extended.”
