Short summary
The Alqueva reservoir is located in the southeast of Portugal. This region is facing an increase in droughts and a degradation in water quality mainly due to more frequent and lasting phytoplancton blooms. With satellite remote sensing is possible to monitoring such reservoirs. In this study, Sentinel-2 presents very good estimation for chlorophyll a, cyanobacteria and water turbidity during a micro algae bloom that vanished due to the approximation of hurricane Ophelia to Iberian Peninsula.
