Water quality monitoring is relevant for protecting the designated, or beneficial uses, of water such as drinking, aquatic life, recreation, irrigation, and food supply that support the economy, human well-being, and aquatic ecosystem health. Managing finite water resources to support these designated uses requires information on water quality so t...
PROBA-V (Project for On-Board Autonomy-Vegetation) is a global vegetation monitoring satellite. The spectral quality of the data and the coverage of PROBA-V over coastal waters provide opportunities to expand its use to other applications. This study tests PROBA-V data for the retrieval of turbidity in the North Sea region. In the first step, cloud...
The CyanoAlert viewer enables visualisation of the satellite products in both map and graph format. Functionalities of the viewer include spatial maps of chl-a concentrations (Figure 1) and the extent of immersed cyanobacteria (Figure 2), if detected in the water. The user can also choose data points in the lake to display the water quality informa...
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) pose a global environmental issue with reported impacts on local economies as well as human and animal health, affecting ecosystem services such as the availability of clean drinking water, fisheries and recreation. Exploiting satellite data archives has offered in recent years the unprecedented opportunity to monitor HA...
ProbaV satelite images are processed for sea surface sediment concentrations and validated by comparsion with MODIS images and TELEMAC numerical simulations.
Ocean colour applications from medium-resolution polar-orbiting satellite sensors have now matured and evolved into operational services. These applications are enabled by the Sentinel-3 OLCI space sensors of the European Earth Observation Copernicus programme and the VIIRS sensors of the US Joint Polar Satellite System programme. Key drivers for t...

Toxic algae are a worldwide problem threatening aquaculture, public health and tourism. Alexandrium, a toxic dinoflagellate proliferates in Northwest France estuaries (i.e. the Penzé estuary) causing Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning events. Vegetative growth, and in particular the role of nutrient uptake and growth rate, are crucial parameters to unde...
The CyanoAlert service will be a global service for the environmental authorities and commercial sector, concerned by health risks and quality of water resources. The service will deliver a fully automated application for assessing toxin producing cyanobacteria blooms in water resources globally, using Copernicus satellite earth observation remote sensing technology. The service foresees a dual dissemination system that provides user-specific information for monitoring and reporting purposes to paying customers, and a free and open information for the public through web and mobile applications. The consortium consists of three implementation partners, Brockmann Consult (Germany), Odermatt & Brockmann (Switzerland) and Brockmann Geomatics (Sweden), for the technical implementation of the Service, and three pilot user partners the County Administrative Board of Stockholm (Sweden),The Italian National Institute of Health (Italy) and the Danube Delta National Institute for Research and Development (Romania). The pilot user partners will integrate the service into their daily operations to demonstrate its usability and value. The establishment of a sustainable supply chain, and a sound business model, will enable us to bring this innovative service to the market.
