Water Quality of Lake Mj{\o}sa through Satellite Images: A Preliminary Study

  title={Water Quality of Lake Mj\{\o\}sa through Satellite Images: A Preliminary Study},
  author={Anders Gjesdal Oliversen and Hilda Deborah},
Since around 2010, the water quality in lake Mjøsa has begun to decline after an earlier successful effort to improve the water quality (Mjøsaksjonen). In this study, we investigate the possibility of using satellite imagery to monitor the water quality of lake Mjøsa, and also compare the use of such an approach to current methods for monitoring the lake. Using satellite images for remote sensing has layers of complexity that were not apparent to us at first, and this paper summarizes some of…

First Experiences in Mapping Lake Water Quality Parameters with Sentinel-2 MSI Imagery
Preliminary results allow us to assume that Sentinel-2 will be a valuable tool for lake monitoring and research, especially taking into account that the data will be available routinely for many years, the imagery will be frequent, and free of charge.
Use of Sentinel 2 – MSI for water quality monitoring at Alqueva reservoir, Portugal
Abstract. Alqueva reservoir located in southeast of Portugal has a surface area of 250 km2 and total capacity of 4150 hm3. Since 2006 the water quality of this reservoir is explored by the authors

Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Total Phosphorus (TP) in Three Central Indiana Water Supply Reservoirs
The connection between nutrient input and algal blooms for inland water productivity is well known but not the spatial pattern of water nutrient loading and algae concentration. Remote sensing
Recent advances in the understanding and management of eutrophication
Major advances in the scientific understanding and management of eutrophication have been made since the late 1960s. The control of point sources of phosphorus reduced algal blooms in many lakes.

Algal Bloom–Associated Disease Outbreaks Among Users of Freshwater Lakes — United States, 2009–2010
Clinicians should be aware of the potential for HAB-associated illness among patients with a history of exposure to freshwater, and Clinicians ought to beaware of the potentially harmful effects of HABs on humans, animals, and ecosystems.
Meanings of Environmental Terms
Certain terms and expressions that relate to the environment are problematic in that they vary widely in usage within and between disciplines, and several have been used as synonyms. In an attempt to
