Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) which could be threat to public health and the local economy seem to have increased
in occurrences and intensity in the recent years. Anthropogenic and natural factors have been invoked to explain
these harmful events. Sediment and water column evidences support other data and information from satellite images to
help understand harmful algal bloom phenomena and afford inter-basin comparisons in a tropical area like the Philippine
Islands located 13oN and 122oE. Three sites i.e., Manila Bay, Sorsogon bay and Bolinao-Anda, Pangasinan, chosen for the
number of occurrences/recurrences of these blooms and the extent of previous researches, have been chosen for more in-
depth oceanographic studies. Twenty (20) year data sets have likewise made possible the development of several models made
from studies of physical, chemical, geological and biological oceanographers. Technologies to help in the management of these
health and sometimes socio-economic hazards and risks are being developed for coastal communities, most of which are
dependent on the harvest from the sea. Interactions of oceanographers and biologists with managers, local government units
and other academic units make research and mitigation efforts more productive.

Science and Technology, is internationally recognized for her outstanding and relevant research, publication and extension services in Marine Science. She has
served the University of the Philippines (UP) in various academic and administrative positions including being the first woman dean of the College of Science - UP
Diliman. She has extended her expertise to various national government agencies and international organizations. She was concurrently the Vice-chairman of
UNESCO-Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Panel on Harmful Algal Blooms (IPHAB) and the Project Leader of IOC?s Harmful Algal Blooms in
Southeast Asia (HABSEA) Portal and e-learning for 7 years. The ASEAN Red Tide Network, the first regional network of its kind, was coordinated by her for more
than 10 years.
