A substantial cyanobacteria bloom has occurred in the Baltic Sea in summer 2019. This is a regular phenomenon that causes problems for the ecosystem and tourism etc. Near surface accumulations of cyanobacteria were observed on July 26th 2019 using satellite ESA Sentinel 3A (OLCI sensor).
The satellite data were processed by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), who are partners in the CoCliME project. You can keep up to date with cyanobacteria blooms in the Baltic at the SMHI web site: https://www.smhi.se/en/weather/sweden-weather/the-algae-situation
