Prolific Algal Blooms in Coastal Areas in the Shandong Province, in China

19 August 2015 (China) - China has recently experienced the influx of thousands of tonnes of the ‘green tide’ macro algae at one of the most popular seaside tourist attractions in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong. The algal bloom washed in from the Yellow Sea, a marginal sea of the Pacific Ocean located between mainland China and the Korean Peninsula. The sea’s name derives from the sand particles from Gobi Desert sand storms that turn the surface of the water golden yellow.
