Abstract
Algal chlorophyll measurement is usually used to assess trophic status of lakes. The development of satellite remote sensing technology make it possible to detect spectral features of algal chlorophyll and to map the spatial distribution of algae in large lakes. In this paper, NOAA satellite data were utilized to monitor the blue-green algae waterbloom in Chaohu Lake, together with the water sampling for concentrations of chlorophhyll-a analysis and spectral measuring simultaneously. The result indicates that: if there are chlorophylls of blue-green algae, the water reflectance in the near infrared band will obviously increase. Based on this spectral characteristic and the features of blue-green algae' float, meteorological satellite NOAA/AVHRR data can be used to monitor the blue-green algae waterbloom in large badly contaminated inland lakes.
