Dr. Stumpf has responsibilities in improving forecasts of harmful algal blooms and in developing and applying remotely sensed satellite to coastal regions. He has had lead responsibility in transitioning research to operations for the NOAA Harmful Algal Bloom Forecast System in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, he conducts research to improve assessment of habitat change, eutrophication and monitoring of algal blooms and water quality. His studies have encompassed a range of sensors, including AVHRR, Landsat, SeaWiFS and more recent ocean color sensors, and have significantly expanded the capabilities of these sensors in coastal waters. His research has included most of the U.S. east and Gulf coasts, the upper Great Lakes and central California, with studies on such topics as the transport of red tide in the southeast, water clarity and seagrass loss in Florida Bay, the impact of floods on estuaries, and marsh stability in Florida and Delaware.
