Drowning In Data: Monitoring Harmful Algal Blooms

Begins: 28 Sep 2017 2:00 PM EDT
Ends: 28 Sep 2017 3:00 PM EDT
Presenter(s): Dr. Stephanie Smith - YSI Product Manager & Chuck Springer - Aquatic Informatics


Interpreting algae monitoring data is not straightforward, even with the most sophisticated instruments at our fingertips. Examples of challenges include:

  • Processing and interpreting large datasets
  • Working with mismatched timestamps and data from multiple sources
  • Collating data that exist in different file formats
  • Correct water quality signals to compensate for sensor drift and step changes
Register now for this FREE webinar to better understand best practices for managing and interpreting algae data. Many of these same techniques can be used across a variety of parameters and monitoring applications.
Join Dr. Stephanie A. Smith of YSI, a Xylem Brand, and Chuck Springer of Aquatic Informatics as they review best practices for managing and interpreting algae data. They will demonstrate how common spreadsheet tools can be used to process data and will also discuss common challenges with data management in spreadsheets. The webinar will also include information about the limitations of sensor technologies for describing algal biology in units such as CFU/ml and a discussion on how software can be leveraged to estimate some of these values.
