Algal bloom monitoring August 10, 2017: Cyanobacteria observations increased in lakes, surface blooms of cyanobacteria in some of the sea areas of Finland

Although more cyanobacteria have been reported in lakes than a week ago, cyanobacteria situation is typical for this time of August. In the Finnish open sea areas of the Baltic Sea, surface blooms of ...

Algal bloom monitoring August 3, 2017: Still fewer than average cyanobacterial observations in lakes, blooms continue in the sea areas

In lakes, more observations of cyanobacteria have been made than last week, but the amount still remains less than the long-term average. Cyanobacterial blooms continue in several open sea areas and t...

Algal bloom monitoring July 27, 2017: Blooms of cyanobacteria observed in the Baltic Sea, in lakes less cyanobacteria observed than typically

Cyanobacteria are abundant in particular in the Finnish southwestern open sea areas of the Baltic Sea. In lakes, less cyanobacteria have been observed that generally at the end of July. Spores of rus...

Algal bloom monitoring July 20, 2017: Cyanobacterial blooms have decreased in lakes, and cyanobacterial biomass is mixed in the water column in the Finnish open sea areas

Cool and windy weather has tempered cyanobacterial blooms. In lakes, the number of observed cyanobacterial blooms has even decreased since last week. Cyanobacteria are mixed in the water column in the...

Algal bloom monitoring July 13, 2017: First cyanobacterial blooms observed in the open sea areas

The amount of cyanobacterial blooms has increased in the Finnish lakes. In Lake Pyykösjärvi near Oulu, a very abundant blooming has its second week ongoing. The longest blooming, ongoing six weeks, ...

Algal bloom monitoring July 6, 2017: Amount of cyanobacterial blooms has started to increase in the Finnish lakes

The amount of cyanobacterial blooms has started to increase in the Finnish lakes, where even abundant blooms have been observed more than earlier during this summer. There are currently no cyanobacte...

Algal bloom monitoring June 29, 2017: Cool and changeable weather has restrained cyanobacteria

Cyanobacterial abundances have been influenced by cool weather also this week. In inland waters a little over ten observations of low amounts of cyanobacteria have been made, as well as one observatio...

Algal bloom monitoring June 22, 2017: No cyanobacterial blooms in Finnish sea areas, in inland waters locally low amounts of cyanobacteria

There are currently no cyanobacterial blooms in Finnish sea areas, which is typical for early summer. The cool weather has restrained blooms in inland waters also, and only one abundant cyanobacterial...

Algal bloom monitoring June 15, 2017: Cyanobacteria occurrence still low in lakes and the Baltic Sea areas around Finland

Cyanobacteria occurrence is still low which is a typical situation in early summer. Some cyanobacteria have been observed in five monitoring lake sites. In the coastal and open sea areas cyanobacteria...

Algal bloom monitoring August 25, 2016: Some cyanobacterial observations in lakes and coastal areas

In lakes, cyanobacterial situation is typical for this time of the year as cyanobacteria were visibly present in 37 of the national observation sites. Most of the cyanobacterial observations concerned...

Algal bloom monitoring August 18, 2016: Rainy, windy and cool weather almost completely ceased cyanobacteria surface blooms

In lakes, observations of cyanobacteria have ceased almost completely due to rainy, cool and windy weather. In the Finnish open Baltic Sea areas cyanobacteria are mixed in the water column, and no sur...

Algal bloom monitoring August 11, 2016: Cyanobacterial blooms have decreased due to unsettled weather

Cyanobacterial blooms have decreased as a consequence of the unsettled and windy weather. In Finnish sea areas cyanobacteria have been observed only in places, mainly on the coast. In lakes, fewer obs...
