Dinoflagellate cysts are formed by various species of single-celled algae. Some species of cysts can be seed for harmful algal blooms.

An article co-authored by Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Stephen Tomasetti appears in the Journal Environmental Pollution.

"The role of physico-chemical interactions in the seasonality of toxic dinoflagellate cyst assemblages: The case of the NW Patagonian fjords system" was a collaborative work that found that harmful algal bloom cyst distributions in Chilean Patagonia could be explained by variation in physico-chemical drivers that are further modulated by seasonality.
