Photographing toxic blue-green algae in Centralia Lake using a Zephyr II with a color-infrared camera shooting through the wing, with a GoPro in the nose.
I´m trying to work in the same line. What IR camera did you use?
We use a Canon S100 converted to color-infrared by MaxMax.com.
so how did yall come to have a algae problem and whats done about it? just curious
Emery, good questions. I wish i had all the answers. Generally speaking, the algal blooms are related to too much nutrients entering the lake. At this paricular lake, there is a lot of agricultural runoff that enters the lake. A combination of high temperatures, lots of sunlight, and low wind speeds also appears to play a role. We can't control the weather, but reducing nutrient inflow into the lake will probably help. There are some efforts to achieve that goal, including watershed remediation and regulation.
