Using space technologies to study algal bloom

Algal bloom in the west end of Lake Erie captured by MODIS

Using a remote sensing technology that was originally developed for Mars exploration, NASA researchers are taking a closer look at algal bloom in Lake Erie in Northern America. Harmful toxic algal blooms can have a very negative impact on the environment, human health or the economy.
