Abstract:

Our overall hypothesis is that populations of the red tide species Karenia brevis give rise to distinct and identifiable optical signatures in inherent optical properties and remote sensing reflectance. Accordingly, the primary objective of this project is to refine and evaluate optical approaches to detect and assess bloom events of K. brevis, and to define limits of detection.
