By Inchio Lou, Boping Han, Weiying Zhang

This e-book describes crucial rules of and methods to tracking and modeling algal blooms. Freshwater algal blooms became a growing to be hindrance around the world. they're attributable to a excessive point of cyanobacteria, rather Microcystis spp. and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, that could produce microcystin and cylindrospermopsin, respectively. due to the fact long term publicity to those cyanotoxins might have an effect on public well-being, the trustworthy detection and quantification of those damaging algae species has turn into a concern in water caliber administration.

The ebook makes use of a sophisticated tracking method of determine and quantify cyanobacteria species and diverse cyanotoxin-producing genotypes. additional, it makes use of a modeling method of forecast the incidence of the phytoplankton that reasons algal blooms in freshwater reservoirs, supplying a finished photograph of presently to be had micro- and macro-techniques for learning the matter of algal blooms. As such, it bargains a necessary consultant for researchers, graduate scholars engineers engaged in tracking and modeling water caliber in lakes and reservoirs.

Dr. InChio Lou is an Assistant Professor at college of Macau, Macau, China. Dr. Boping Han is a professor at Jinan Universtiy, Guangzhou, China. Weiying Zhang is a researcher of Environmental Engineering within the region of freshwater phytoplankton at college of Macau, Macau, China.

Kong et al. Introduction As nutrients, particularly nitrogen and phosphorus, are increasingly discharged into freshwater systems, cyanobacterial blooms are becoming a problem in reservoirs around the world, including those used for drinking water. Cyanobacterial blooms are caused by the proliferation of cyanobacterial cells under favorable conditions in eutrophic water bodies, accompanied by potential increased release of cyanotoxins such as microcystins and cylindrospermopsins that may affect the health of human and animals (Paerl and Huisman 2009).

P. 1114–1121. Chapter 4 Using an Online Phycocyanin Fluorescence Probe for Rapid Monitoring of Cyanobacteria in Macau Freshwater Reservoir Yijun Kong, Inchio Lou, Yiyong Zhang, Chong U. Lou, and Kai Meng Mok Abstract Monitoring of cyanobacteria and their toxins is traditionally conducted by cell counting, chlorophyll-a (chl-a) determination and cyanotoxin measurements, respectively. These methods are tedious, costly, time-consuming, and insensitive to rapid changes in water quality and cyanobacterial abundance.
