[UK] Harmful algal blooms are the rapid and uncontrolled growth of algae in either freshwater or marine environments and can cause Continue reading Image analysis addresses harmful algal blooms
[USA] The slimy, smelly toxic algae overtaking some waterways in southern Florida is so widespread it can now be seen from space. Continue reading Florida’s toxic algae blooms are visible from space
[USA] Freshwater polluted by harmful algal blooms costs the United States at least $64 million every year, by government estimates. Continue reading Satellite data helps detect harmful algal blooms
[Global, USA] Climate change and poor land use have caused explosive growth of toxic algae around the world in recent years, putting more water-treatment plant operators on high alert and increasing anxiety of consumers. Continue reading Scientists: Algae not just Toledo problem, Earth’s water quality in decline
[EU] The Sentinel-2A satellite has been in orbit for only a matter of weeks, but new images of an algal bloom in the Baltic Sea show that it is already exceeding expectations. Built essentially as a land monitoring mission, Sentinel-2 will also certainly find its way into marine applications. Continue reading Sentinel-2 catches eye of algal storm
[USA] NASA today released hi-resolution images of Lake Erie showing the algal bloom in the lake. The algae is the green color in the lake swirling around the western basin.
The images were captured by the Operational Land Imager on the satellite Continue reading NASA releases hi-res images of Lake Erie algal bloom
In response to increased demand for harmful algal bloom information and data, beginning today, NOAA researchers, and their partners at Heidelberg University, will issue new experimental, early season forecasts of the seasonal harmful algal bloom in western Lake Erie. This information could be used by resource and public health managers deal with the toxic blooms, which can affect human and Continue reading NOAA, partners start early season forecast updates for Lake Erie harmful algal blooms
Slippery, slimy and seriously sordid, algae definitely doesn’t fall into the category of desirable water plants. Yet from space, water bodies overrun with eukaryotic organisms give off an almost ethereal aesthetic. With their soft colours and swirling patterns, algal Continue reading Why is NASA Launching a $3.6 Million Project to Monitor Algae?
NASA is beginning work on a new satellite mission that will extend critical climate measurements of Earth’s oceans and atmosphere and advance Continue reading New NASA Mission to Study Ocean Color, Airborne Particles and Clouds
(Nanowerk News) An international team of researchers has demonstrated a way to assess the quality of water on Earth from space by using satellite technology that can visualise pollution levels Continue reading ‘Superhero vision’ technology measures European lake’s water quality from space
