Webinar: CyanoAlert – Space-based Cyanobacteria Information & Services
November 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This webinar will be presented by Petra Philipson, PhD in aquatic remote
sensing and remote sensing consultant since 2003. Co-founder, vice manager and consultant at Brockmann Geomatics since 2011, with personal interest and focus on aquatic national, European and global assignments and research and development projects.
Abstract: CyanoAlert is a three-year project funded by the European Commission ending in spring 2020 (www.cyanoalert.com). The project aims to provide customers in government, commercial and environmental sectors with up-to-date, accurate and relevant information on the health risks posed by cyanobacteria blooms in water bodies through utilising Copernicus Satellite Earth Observation data. The service will offer weekly updates, forecasts, and near real-time information on cyanobacteria blooms and eutrophication (chlorophyll-a) through its service portal and mobile application. The webinar is a presentation of on-going project activities and results achieved so far.
