Top 3 Reasons to Switch to Long-term HAB Monitoring

Long-term harmful algal bloom monitoring is easier to manage than ever before. Better instrumentation and drift-resistant sensors have changed the game — basically eliminating every reason to skip this important measure. And given the increasing prevalence of toxic blooms and their potential threat to public health and economic stability, early detection is more important than ever.

Join In-Situ Application Development Manager Eric Robinson for a practical discussion on why and how to make long-term HAB monitoring an effective and affordable part of your water quality program.

In-Situ Application Development Manager Eric Robinson will discuss the benefits of long-term HAB monitoring and techniques for simplifying the process. He will cover:

  • Risks: Who should conduct HAB monitoring and what they should look for
  • Techniques: Benefits of long-term monitoring vs. spot sampling
  • Realities: Issues you’ll encounter during long-term monitoring
  • Instrumentation: Advantages of current monitoring equipment and why Integrated Optical Compensation is key to optimal sensor accuracy

This webinar will include information useful to anyone monitoring surface water quality or interested in doing so. It will be of particular interest to:

  • Researchers
  • Technicians
  • Students and Faculty
  • Policy Makers
