Composite 8-days of satellite imagery up to 07-26-2021

showing location of algae bloom which may include algae besides K. brevis


Unable to determine respiratory irritation risk from Karenia brevis, red tide, because no water sampling data available from 07-19-2021 to 07-26-2021.


The image was derived from Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite data from the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and was processed by NOAA, National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science. NOTE: Image quality will vary with clouds and satellite position (OLCI satellite background information). Cell count data were provided by several contributors.
