A study by Obenour et al. (2014) suggests that recent increases in cyanobacterial blooms in Lake Erie may be due to factors other than spring nutrient loads.  By using a different analytical approach to analyzing the dynamics of bloom formation, the authors evaluated the potential causes of the increase in toxin-producing microcystis in the western basin.  Their results indicate that neither concentrations of dissolved reactive phosphorous nor increased water temperatures were to blame.
