Article
Full-text available
Water temperature is critical for the ecology of lakes. However, the ability to predict its spatial and seasonal variation is constrained by the lack of a thermal classification system. Here we define lake thermal regions using objective analysis of seasonal surface temperature dynamics from satellite observations. Nine lake thermal regions are ide...

A global service for environmental authorities and the commercial sector, assessing toxin-producing cyanobacteria blooms in water resources globally.

CyanoAlert® este un serviciu destinat autorităţilor de mediu, organizaţiilor şi institutelor care au în atribuţii sau au preocupări privind monitoringul calităţii resurselor de apă continentale şi din zonele costiere.
Article
Full-text available
Over the past years, there has been significant progress in the field of water quality monitoring that has also introduced new challenges. First and foremost, there is an ongoing development in satellite-based retrieval techniques, accompanied by technological development of the equipment deployed in situ to monitor chlorophyll and cyanobacteria. T...
Poster
Full-text available
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...
Data
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...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Over the past years, there were certain progresses in the field of water quality monitoring that pose new challenges. First and foremost, there is an ongoing development of satellite evaluation, accompanied by technological development of the “in situ” equipment’s that are used for chlorophyll and cyanobacteria assessment. To apprehend potential ad...

Article
Full-text available
The offshore wind industry has seen unprecedented growth over the last few years. In line with this growth, there has been a push towards more exposed sites, farther from shore, in deeper water with consequent increased investor risk. There is therefore a growing need for accurate, reliable, met-ocean data to identify suitable sites, and from which...
Article
Full-text available
The coast is home to unique ecosystems, where complex ecological processes take place through the interaction of terrestrial, aquatic, atmospheric, and human landscapes. However, there are considerable knowledge and data gaps in achieving effective and future change-proof sustainable management of coastal zones around the world due to both technica...
Article
Full-text available
Phosphorus and nitrogen are key nutrients that affect abundance and growth of aquatic primary producers but cannot be directly remotely sensed as their dissolved or organic forms do not interact with the remote sensing signal. In addition, other lake water quality variables such as chlorophyll a and Secchi disk depth, have been previously successfu...
Chapter
Marine spatial planning focuses on reconciling multiple uses of marine resources and space of oceans, seas and coasts which form an integrated and essential component of the Earth's ecosystem, and are critical to achieving global sustainable growth. For example, coasts are the intersection where people and their prosperity from oceans and seas come...
Chapter
An important prerequisite for the effective application of Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) is the use of appropriate integrated approaches. In particular, the development of zoning schemes has been proved valuable for the delineation of areas where specific activities should occur. In addition, multiple criteria analysis has the advantage of coestima...
Article
Full-text available
The GloboLakes project, a global observatory of lake responses to environmental change, aims to exploit current satellite missions and long remote-sensing archives to synoptically study multiple lake ecosystems, assess their current condition, reconstruct past trends to system trajectories, and assess lake sensitivity to multiple drivers of change....
Article
Full-text available
Over 50% of the world's population live within 3km of rivers and lakes highlighting the on-going importance of freshwater resources to human health and societal well-being. Whilst covering c. 3.5% of the Earth's non-glaciated land mass, trends in the environmental quality of the world's standing waters (natural lakes and reservoirs) are poorly unde...
Article
Full-text available
Many studies have shown the considerable potential for the application of remote-sensing-based methods for deriving estimates of lake water quality. However, the reliable application of these methods across time and space is complicated by the diversity of lake types, sensor configuration, and the multitude of different algorithms proposed. This st...
Article
Full-text available
Lakes are major repositories of biodiversity, provide multiple ecosystem services and are widely recognised as key indicators of environmental change. However, studies of lake response to drivers of change at a pan-European scale are exceptionally rare. The need for such studies has been given renewed impetus by concerns over environmental change a...
Thesis
Lakes are key indicators of environmental change and major repositories of biodiversity and ecosystem services. However, studies of lake response to drivers of change at a pan-European scale are exceptionally rare. The need for such studies has been given renewed impetus by concerns over climate change and because of international policy-related sc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes the preliminary results of a p ilot study based on Terra/ Aqua MODIS data to estimate temperature and chlorophyll a concentrations in two Alpine and one Scandinavian lake with different biological characteristics. Ini tially, the standard MODIS OC3 and SST products were tested and validated with in situ measurements from coinci...
