This book describes essential principles of and approaches to monitoring and modeling algal blooms. Freshwater algal blooms have become a growing concern worldwide. They are caused by a high level of cyanobacteria, particularly Microcystis spp. and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, which can produce microcystin and cylindrospermopsin, respectively. This paper presents a model-based dynamic optimization study of the operation of an outdoor open pond for microalgae cultivation. A nonlinear mathematical model based on first-principles for predicting the growth of microalgae in open ponds is developed and validated against literature data. To account for the impact of weather vagaries on the cultivation of microalgae, data for local climatic Cited by: Algal models have been developed for the River Thames. Non-linear processes controlling algal growth are examined using a generalized sensitivity analysis technique, and the dominant parameters. Greenhouse gas and techno-economic modelling are reviewed as is the year history of microalgae as sources of biofuels and of commercial-scale microalgae culture. A summary of relevant basic standard methods used in the study of microalgae culture is provided. The book is intended for the expert and those starting work in the field.5/5(1).

The effect of sediment concentration on the growth of algae was considered in the model. The numerical model was calibrated using field measured data provided by USGS, and then it was validated by the BCS Opening Event in The simulated results were generally in good agreement with filed data and satellite imagery.   This book documents the research resulting in the development and validation of the ALGAE (Adaptive Learning GAme dEsign) model, a comprehensive adaptive learning model based on game design theories and practices, instructional strategies, and adaptive models. This research extends previous research in game design, instructional strategies, and Author: Dr. Edward Lavieri. In this study, we design an intelligent model to predict chlorophyll-a concentration, which is the primary indicator of algal blooms, using extreme learning machine (ELM) models. Modeling algal blooms is important for environmental management and ecological risk assessment. For this purpose, the performance of the designed models was evaluated for four artificial weirs in the Nakdong River, Korea.
