About this book

Sometimes known as `Red Tides', some of the wide variety of phytoplankton species in the World's oceans produce toxins which can harm marine life. In certain circumstances, these harmful algae 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 programmes to measure the presence of toxins in algae blooms.

Monitoring of Harmful Algae Blooms is all about the research techniques to monitor visible algae blooms and through remote sensing, including infrared techniques, predict them through mathematical modelling.


- Aspects of Harmful Algae Blooms (HAB)
- Biology and ecology of some harmful algae species (focus on Chantonella-tbd)
- Retrieval of algae bloom related quantities from space
- Monitoring algae bloom from space
- Integrated approach for operational and forecasting HAB events
- Outlook
