  • Remote sensing models using Landsat satellite data to monitor algal blooms in Lake Champlain

    Lake Champlain is significantly impaired by excess phosphorus loading, requiring frequent lake-wide monitoring for eutrophic conditions and algal blooms. Satellite remote sensing provides regular, synoptic coverage of algal production over large areas with better spatial and temporal resolution compared with in situ monitoring. This study developed two algal production models using Landsat ...

  • LG Sound integrates new technology to detect toxic algae blooms

    LG Sound introduces satellite remote sensing technology in order to detect toxic algae blooms. Satellite remote sensing allows for detection of water quality from a distance with information obtained from satellites. Together with several European universities we discovered that different types of algae require different types of ultrasonic treatment. Therefore, it is important to detect ...

  • Real-Time Monitoring Solution for Harmful Algal Blooms - Case Study

    Background Microscopic plants (algae) that live in the sea will sometimes grow out of control and produce harmful toxins that can contaminate water and shell fish, kill animals, and sicken humans. These negative consequences can have large monetary effects that ripple across many industries. In 2011, it was estimated that health consequences due to marine-borne pathogens in the USA have ...

  • Algae control in Auckland Dam - Case Study

    Five solar-powered algae control systems where installed in the Lower Nihotupu Dam in Auckland, New Zealand to reduce the levels of blue-green algae. The project started in December 2016 and so far, the project appeared to be of great success with the blue-green algae count over summer 90 per cent less than the previous year. The Challenge: Reduce Blue-green Algae Count The ...

  • Algal bloom causes and prevention

    Algal blooms are also known as marine blooms or water blooms, and are actually a sudden increase in the population of algae in water scenery. Algal blooms usually take place in freshwater, such as lakes and water reservoirs as well as in marine milieus. They can be easily identified by coloration of the water ensuing from the high density of pigmented cells. Though many types of algae can form ...
