Predicting when toxic algae will reach Washington and Oregon coasts

Late summer is the peak time for harmful algae that can turn lakes into toxic scum, canceling fishing trips and fouling water supplies. While the Pacific Northwest doesn’t get anything near the activity that turned parts of Lake Erie into bright green slime, our coasts are vulnerable in late summer to this largely unpredictable – and in our case unseen – menace.

University of Washington oceanographers have created a tool to help predict when harmful algae might strike. Continue reading Predicting when toxic algae will reach Washington and Oregon coasts

Water Drones to Maintain Algae Blooms

[25th, Apr 2014] Combating algae is known as a complicated process which requires accurate measurements. A European consortium would like to present the dronic project, which will change algae treatment into a new technology that can simplify and bring it to a higher level. This will provide an effective treatment against algae and cyanobacteria in lakes and inland water reservoirs used for drinking water production… Continue reading Water Drones to Maintain Algae Blooms
