Successful Water Quality Monitoring with Satellite Remote Sensing

By Dr. Bridget Seegers

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are a water quality issue that negatively impact ecosystem and human health and have wide reaching recreational and economic consequences. The Cyanobacteria Assessment Network (CyAN) project is an interagency (US-EPA, NASA, NOAA, USGS) effort that uses satellite remote sensing to assess water quality at regional scales and significantly increases the monitoring tools available for water resource managers and researchers. The talk will highlight success stories from CyAN. Additionally, the talk will look towards the future discussing new water quality products that may be possible with data from the advanced instruments on the recently launched PACE (Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem) satellite.
