Probe experiment on bluegreen algae

Probe experiment on blue-green algae can be regarded as a commission to inspect propulsion and maneuverability performance of SPC-III. Located in the area of Changjiang Delta Region, Taihu Lake is the major water source of Wuxi. In the summer of 2007, there was a mass breakout of blue-green algae in Taihu Lake, which became the prime environmental issue harassing the local residents and government. In November 2007, carrying Water Quality Multiprobes (HACH D5X), SPC-III successfully performed a probe cruising of about 49km in the water of Taihu Lake and brought back concentration distributing data of blue-green algae. Some of the probe results are shown in Table 2. Areas under heavy pollution are indicated in red in Figure 9.
