Because of the many characteristics of cyanobacteria, remote sensing provides an effective monitoring tool. Using satellite data, we can provide forecasts and early warning of the location and extent of algal blooms.
The theme aims to highlight the relevance and value of Earth Observations (EO) — from satellites, to buoys and land networks — for health and safety. EO examples include: Visible, IR, and Water Vapor satellites, Dual-pol Radars, and Ground-Station Networks for the atmosphere; and Gliders, Pier Stations, and Water Sampling for the oceans.
