Satellite session on sensors for cyanobacteria and other HABs

Monday 22 October 2018, from 12.30 to 13.15

New tools and approaches for the monitoring of harmful blooms.

This lunch-time seminar will permit to present the tools (reflectance and absorbance sensors, drone system) developped in the framework of a French research project dealing with the monitoring of cyanobacteria and to open the discussion about other monitoring approcahes based on the use of images collected by camera (including mobile applications in the framework of participatory science approaches).

  • Sign up for this satellite session during the conference registration procedure
  • Lunch boxes will be distributed to participants at the end of the session
  • Attendance to the satellite symposium included in the conference registration fee



 

Satellite session McLane Research Laboratories

Tuesday 23 October 2018, from 13.30 to 14.15

The allure of automated microscopy for monitoring programs - from promise to reality, with a few road bumps

Dr. Raphael Kudela, Professor of Ocean Sciences (University of California, Santa Cruz, USA)

There has been, and continues to be, great interest in developing automated counting methods for plankton as part of a broader push to develop "biological sensors" that can provide comparable data to physical/chemical sensors (e.g. temperature, salinity, nitrate, pH) as part of autonomous systems.
While various commercial sensors exist, the McLane Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB) has been integrated into multiple programs, and, for some sites, is on the path from research to operations. Here we give some examples of lessons learned, successes, issues, and new science applications for IFCB data within several sites along the California coast. We specifically focus on the use of IFCB by "novices" using this exciting new technology and data.

Satellite session on biomolecular methods for HAB species

Thursday 25 October 2018, from 13.30 to 14.15

Workshop on morpho-molecular methods to study harmful algae.

This workshop aims to bring together scientists working on harmful algae, with an interest to develop molecular methods, such as probes and qPCR, to study harmful algae, such as Azadinium, Alexandrium and Vulcanodinium. There will be a strong focus on discussing methodological issues.
