  • Draws on current and future satellite data and presents visible perspectives on a more efficient HAB monitoring system for the future
  • Emphasizes practical applications, impacting on marine ecology, national economy, health, food and safety and quality assurance
  • Uses remote sensing and ecological/biochemical numerical modeling for data assimilation as techniques for predicting HAB

Sometimes known as "Red Tides", harmful algal blooms are made up of a wide variety of phytoplankton species at large in the World’s oceans.

However, they produce toxins which can harm marine life, and in certain circumstances, these harmful algal blooms can even cause illness or death in humans.

Shellfish filter-feed on phytoplankton and concentrate their toxins in their bodies – and people who eat them can contract life-threatening food poisoning.

A number of countries have monitoring programs to measure the presence of toxins in algal blooms.

This crucial and timely work concentrates on the research techniques that are used to monitor visible algal blooms and through remote sensing, including infrared techniques, predict them through mathematical modeling.

Drawing on current and future satellite data, the book presents visible perspectives on a more efficient HAB monitoring system for the future.

It also emphasizes practical applications, impacting on marine ecology, national economy, health, food and safety and quality assurance.
