    This paper describes the ABDMAP (Algal Bloom Detection, Monitoring And Prediction) project, which was a Concerted Action funded by the European Commission and carried out from April 1997 to March 1999. In the course of the project a number of workshops were held in various European countries....

    In this study, we demonstrated that the Landsat-8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) sensor is a powerful tool that can provide periodic and system-wide information on the condition of drinking water reservoirs. The OLI is a multispectral radiometer (30 m spatial resolution) that allows ecosystem...
