CyanoLakes provided up to three-weeks advance warning of cyanobacteria blooms compared with routine in situ monitoring [and is] invaluable in providing sufficient time for operational decision making in preparation for severe bloom conditions and the accompanying microcystin or taste and odour contamination treatment issues
CyanoLakes is the first product that can distinguish harmful cyanobacteria from algae. In offering relevant information in near real-time to subscribers worldwide via the cloud, it is a great example of how to take research to commercial services.
Monitoring on a national scale is very expensive, logistically challenging and labour intensive. CyanoLakes will allow monitoring of waterbodies not in the current network… and optimise our monitoring activities, leading to a significantly improved ability to manage and mitigate the harmful effects of potentially toxic cyanobacteria bloom.
I love Cyanolakes, so useful for the hyacinth and risk levels. They just added the enhanced vegetation to the programme so that is an exciting tool.
