Lake Wyangan harmful algae bloom monitoring

Harmful algae bloom monitoring of a small lake in New South Wales, Australia

EOMAP delivered water quality data to environmental consultancy company Water Technology for Lake Wyangan, a small lake in New South Wales/Australia, in order to complement and augment the ongoing in-situ water quality monitoring program. EOMAP’s harmful algae bloom indicator (HAB) was of specific interest as the lake occassionally suffers cyanobacterial blooms. A total of ten high resolution scenes scenes were processed and delivered for dates between September 2015 and April 2016. In alignment with in situ measurements, the satellite-derived data revealed trends and patterns of cyanobacterial growth.
