Water quality model to forecast freshwater algal
and cyanobacterial blooms
How to use the model
Input water quality
parameters in the white cells below for the algal bloom type of
interest (phytoplankton, cyanobacteria, or toxic cyanobacteria).
These data will be used to calculate the predicted
concentrations of algae, cyanobacteria, or toxic cyanobacteria
and associated risk level for your waterbody. Note that
"risk" is a relative term. We used our knowledge of our
dataset to relate risk with certain water quality parameters.
If you are concerned about your waterbody, we encourage you to
a local USDA
