The detection and mapping of algal blooms from space
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.
