This paper describes the ABDMAP (Algal Bloom Detection, Monitoring And Prediction) project, which was a Concerted Action funded by the European Commission and carried out from April 1997 to March 1999. In the course of the project a number of workshops were held in various European countries. These workshops were devoted to various scientific aspects of algal blooms and, in particular, to the use of Earth observation (remote sensing) data for the study of such blooms. Great attention was given… Expand
The theory and practice of prevention, forecast and warning on cyanobacteria bloom in Lake Taihu
The present article described the importance of prevention, forecast and warning of cyanobacteria bloom. The recent progresses of formation and forecast of cyanobacteria bloom were reviewed. Based onExpand
Cyanobacteria as indicators of water quality in Campania coasts, Italy: a monitoring strategy combining remote/proximal sensing and in situ data
Cyanobacterial blooms (CBs) are generally triggered by eutrophic conditions due to anthropogenic nutrient inputs to local waters (wastewater or contaminated waters). During the bloom, some speciesExpand
Passive optical remote sensing of cyanobacteria and other intense phytoplankton blooms in coastal and inland waters
Increased frequency and extent of potentially harmful blooms in coastal and inland waters world-wide require the development of methods for operative and reliable monitoring of the blooms over vastExpand
An improved ecological model and software for short-term algal bloom forecasting
To predict algal blooms in Lake Taihu, a Windows-based Software integrating the EcoTaihu model (WSE) was developed that encapsulated external functions, boundary conditions, and parameter settings of the Eco Taiwanese model and the water-quality data and satellite remote sensing data assimilation modules.

Comprehensive evaluation of the potential risk from cyanobacteria blooms in Poyang Lake based on nutrient zoning
The potential risk from cyanobacteria blooms is the basis for predicting, preventing, and managing eutrophication. Poyang Lake lies on the southern bank of the middle and lower reaches of the YangtzeExpand

Aquaculture ranks among the most dynamic food production industries in the world, with an annual growth rate of 9.2% since 1970 [1]. Both the fisheries and aquaculture sectors are facing strengthenedExpand
Multiplatform optical monitoring of eutrophication in temporally and spatially variable lakes.
The added value of synoptic eutrophication maps to the standard monitoring program of two large, spatially and temporally variable lakes in the Netherlands, Lakes IJssel and Marken is addressed. Expand
Assessment of nutrient distributions in Lake Champlain using satellite remote sensing.
The results show the feasibility and the utility of satellite imagery to detect spatial distributions of lake water quality constituents, which can be used to better understand nutrient distributions in Lake Champlain. Expand
Using NDVI from MODIS to Monitor Duckweed Bloom in Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela
Four summer time-series (2003–2006) of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) derived from MODIS imagery were used to investigate duckweed blooms and other floating vegetation in LakeExpand


OCEAN Project: The European archive of CZCS historical data
Optical observations of the marine environment have been increasingly used to provide a novel look at a score of bio-geo-chemical and physical processes of the sea. A considerable time series of suchExpand

We have analyzed remote sensing data acquired over the Baltic Sea by various sensors flying on different satellites. As an example of our studies we show how different the same (natural) oceanExpand
Algal Pigment Fingerprints: Clue to Taxon-Specific Abundance, Productivity and Degradation of Phytoplankton in Seas and Oceans
The only way to arrive at reasonable estimates of primary production in the marine environment is to establish the relation between photosynthesis and a few parameters determining the growth potential of algal cells that can be measured quickly and therefore frequently. Expand
Remote Sensing of Algal Bloom DynamicsNew research fuses remote sensing of aquatic ecosystems with algal accessory pigment analysis
mhe last decade has seen rapid advances in two technologybased approaches to the study of algal biology: the use of remote sensing, which quantitatively measures light reflected from the surface ofExpand
Ocean Color Chlorophyll Algorithms for SEAWIFS
A large data set containing coincident in situ chlorophyll and remote sensing reflectance measurements was used to evaluate the accuracy, precision, and suitability of a wide variety of ocean colorExpand
Distribution and abundance of benthic microalgae in a shallow southwestern Australian estuarine system
Measurements were made of benthic microalgal biomass (chlorophyll mg m-2) and concentration (chlorophyll, µg g-1 dry weight of sediment) from the Peel-Harvey estuarine system, Western Australia. MostExpand
Remote sensing of ALGAL pigments to determine coastal phytoplankton dynamics in Florida Bay
An important component of remote sensing of marine and coastal environments is the detection of phytoplankton to estimate biological activity. Traditionally the focus has been on detection ofExpand
Models of harmful algal blooms
Techniques such as data assimilation may increase the predictive power of models, suggest strategies for improving field sampling, and better constrain poorly known parameters and processes in models used to study harmful algal blooms. Expand
Some bio-optical characteristics of phytoplankton in the NW Indian Ocean
Light absorption by phytoplankton and the parameters of the photosynthesis-light curve were measured in the NW Indian Ocean in January to February 1993, and the quantum yield of photosynthesis varied over a factor of 6, and was correlated with relative changes in absorption in the blue and red parts of the spectrum.
