MONITORING OF HARMFUL ALGAL BLOOMS

Lasse H. Pettersson and Dmitry Pozdnyakov

MONITORING OF HARMFUL ALGAL BLOOMS Monitoring of Harmful Algal Blooms covers a complex set of issues related to the nature, environmental conditions of origination, and comprehensive monitoring, including satellite Earth observation data, of harmful algal blooms (HABs). It describes one of the first attempts to organize integrated HAB monitoring with a synergetic use of different satellite missions and sensors, in situ measurements, as well as biogeochemical/ecosystem numerical simulations. Focusing primarily on relatively high biomass blooms that are advected with ocean currents, the book:
