Algae Blooms cause $14 B per year in damages.
Current sensors cannot predict outbreaks.
Harmful Algae Blooms have poisoned city water supplies, devastated fishing, caused real estate values to plummet, and ruined our recreational areas. Controlling blooms depends on early warning and monitoring systems.
But, current sensors cannot scale to provide meaningful data about a water area. They are expensive and difficult to deploy. Notably:
Standard sensors require several technical personnel a week to deploy
Weighing several hundred pounds, boats and specialized training are required
Extremely high costs make multiple buoys prohibitive
