How Algae Sensors Work: Principles and Practice Webinar

With limited means for prevention and mitigation of 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.

Dr. Stephanie A. Smith

YSI Product Segment Manager

Dr. Stephanie A. Smith has worked with blue-green and other algae for 20 years, starting with her doctoral program at The Ohio State University, and including her own business that makes high-value products from blue-green algae. At Xylem she manages the Outdoor Water Quality product line, which includes YSI’s Total Algae (TAL) sensors. Dr. Smith has used or evaluated numerous algae-monitoring technologies throughout the course of her career, ranging from laboratory-based extractions of pigments and toxins to in situ sensing of pigments for early detection of harmful algal blooms.
