Texas Satellite Imagery

Composite 8-days of satellite imagery up to 06-03-2023

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 05-27-2023 to 06-03-2023.

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.
