Endemic Nephropathy in Developing Countries: Epidemiology and Earth Observation

Back to search results

Cyanobacterial toxins have emerged as a potential causative agent for endemic nephropathy in pilot data collected by NO in Sri Lanka. Using imagery from Landsat/Sentinel 2 satellites water quality parameters for water bodies can be used to derive basic ground-truth data. Water quality information and meteorological data is then used to allow correlation with health data from different climate regions in Sri Lanka. This will allow temporal-spatial analysis relating population exposure to cyanobacterial blooms and association with renal disease.
