CPEP Seminar – Hydroclimatic Forecasting and Satellite Remote Sensing for Harmful Algae in Small Inland Lakes

Speaker: Max Beal, PhD candidate, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UW–Madison

Hydroclimatic variability can have a pronounced influence on public and ecosystem health through water quality. Harmful algae has become a prominent water quality concern in recent years, creating negative consequences for ecosystem function, economic opportunity, and human health. This work explores the development of hydroclimatic forecasts for harmful algae and the potential for satellite-based monitoring systems to retrieve harmful algae indicators in small inland lakes with the goal of improving management, resource allocation, and public health related to lake water quality.

This seminar can also be viewed via our live stream.

Hosted by the Climate, People and the Environment Program (CPEP).
