Algal blooms change the colour of water through absorption by pigments and scattering by cells and associated detrital material. This paper gives a brief introduction, primarily using ocean colour imagery, to the use of satellite Earth observation measurements in detecting and mapping algal blooms. Two examples, using Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS) imagery, show blooms within northern European waters.
