Real-time observations are essential for effective short-term operational forecasting, but observation and modelling systems are still being ...

  • Book Harmful Algae Blooms in Drinking Water: Removal of Cyanobacterial Cells and Toxins

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occurring in freshwater, and the associated toxins they produce, are dangerous to animals and humans.

This book explores the current research on removal of HABs and toxins from drinking ...

  • Ecology of Harmful Algae

    Harmful algal blooms are one of the consequences of the human impact on aquatic ecosystems, particularly the process of eutrophication. They can cause a variety of deleterious effects, including the poisoning of fish and shellfish, habitat disruptions for many organisms, water discolouration, beach fouling, and even toxic effects for humans.This ...
