Interpreting algae monitoring data is not straightforward, even with the most sophisticated instruments at our fingertips. Examples of challenges include:
On Thursday, September 28th, join Dr. Stephanie A. Smith of YSI, a Xylem Brand, and Chuck Springer of Aquatic Informatics as they review best practices for managing and interpreting algae data. They will demonstrate how spreadsheet tools can be used to process data and will also discuss common challenges with data management in spreadsheets. The webinar will also include information about the limitations of sensor technologies for describing algal biology in units such as CFU/ml and a discussion on how software can be leveraged to estimate some of these values.
Stephanie and Chuck will describe solutions for managing data from discrete environmental samples, multi-parameter sondes, and laboratory analyses. Learn how to quickly identify data outliers, review associated metadata, and apply drift corrections across disparate files generated by monitoring tools.
Register now for this FREE webinar to gain a better understanding of best practices for managing and interpreting algae data. Many of these same techniques can be used across a variety of parameters and monitoring applications.
