How Algae Sensors Work: Principles and Practice Webinar

Begins: 11 Jun 2019 1:00 PM ET
Ends: 11 Jun 2019 2:00 PM ET
Presenter(s): Dr. Stephanie A. Smith - YSI Product Segment Manager


The Cleveland Water Alliance and YSI, a Xylem brand, are proud to offer this five-part educational series on in situ sensing technologies for all students of water quality, from undergraduates to professionals.

With limited means for preventing and mitigating harmful algal blooms in source waters, early detection via in situ monitoring provides the opportunity to plan a response. 

In this educational webinar, we will discuss:

  • Who monitors for algae, and why
  • The evolution of pigment-based detection of algae, from invitro to in vivo
  • The underlying principles of how field-deployable algae sensors work
  • Real-world practice to demonstrate both the value and limitations of sensors so that early detection programs are most effective
  • Plus, there are over 30 minutes of Q&A where Dr. Smith answered the audience's questions!
