Forecast products and associated satellite imagery from Lake Erie created by the NOAA Harmful Algal Bloom Operational Forecast System (HAB-OFS) from 2007-09-10 to the present

browse graphicPreview graphic
This collection contains inputs to, and outputs from the NOAA Harmful Algal Bloom Operational Forecast System (HAB-OFS) in the form of bulletin documents and processed satellite imagery in GeoTIFF format, beginning on 2007-09-10. The HAB-OFS is operated by the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services to produce forecast bulletins for cyanobacteria blooms (blue-green algae) in Lake Erie. The bulletins contain an analysis of the location of cyanobacteria blooms, as well as 3-day forecasts of transport, mixing, scum formation and bloom decline based on the analysis of information from data providers. The bulletins are emailed to subscribers twice weekly during an active bloom. Each year, NCEI creates a new accession containing the data collected during the previous 12 months.
