A Session on Optical sensors and drone systems for the monitoring of harmful blooms is chaired by Jean-François HUMBERT (INRA, Institut d’Ecologie et des Sciences de l’Environnement de Paris, UPMC), co-chair: Kamel Soudani within ICHA2018 in Nantes (21 to 26 October 2018).
This session will concern the use of new sensors and of drone systems for the monitoring of harmful blooms in marine and freshwater ecosystems. One part of the session will permit to present the results obtained in the framework of a French research program (OSS-Cyano) on the development of a low cost aerial sensor and of a drone system able to carry the sensor and different tools for water sampling or for performing underwater measurements. This session will be open to other talks on the new technologies allowing to perform continuous monitoring of algal blooms and/or to assess the spatial distribution of these blooms.
The deadline for abstract submission is 15 April 2018 !!!
