Empirical data for the EWACS model are collected in NIOO’s Limnotrons under various mixing regimes. EWACS (Early Warning Against Cyano Scums) predicts the formation of surface scums of floating cyanobacteria on basis of 3 parameters: cyanobacterial biomass in the lake, buoyancy state of the cells and stability of the water column. For the latter the weather (wind) forecast for the coming week is needed.
