The excessive growth of cyanobacteria in surface waters around the world poses a threat to public health and can lead to high societal costs.

The mechanisms leading to cyanobacterial blooms are complex and involve an various ecological and hydrodynamic mechanisms.

In this project we aim to predict cyanobacterial blooms in ensemble runs with two established process-based water quality models, PCLake (developed by PBL and NIOO) and BLOOM (developed by Deltares).
