The Macau storage reservoir (MSR) has experienced algal blooms in recent years, with high levels of Cylindrospermopsis and Microcystis and detectable concentrations of cyanotoxins. To analyze the cyanotoxin-producing genotypes and relate the corresponding cyanotoxins to the water quality parameters, a quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction was(More)
Monitoring of cyanobacteria and their toxins are traditionally conducted by cell counting, chlorophyll-a (chl-a) determination and cyanotoxin measurements, respectively. These methods are tedious, costly, time consuming, and insensitive to rapid changes in water quality and cyanobacterial abundance. We have applied and tested an online phycocyanin (PC)(More)
Understanding and predicting dynamic change of algae population in freshwater reservoirs is particularly important, as algae-releasing cyanotoxins are carcinogens that would affect the health of public. However, the high complex nonlinearity of water variables and their interactions makes it difficult in modeling its growth. Recently, extreme learning(More)
