Summary of the national cyanobacteria review June–August 2022: Abundant cyanobacteria observed at sea this summer, cyanobacterial situation in lakes remained at the level of recent years

The cyanobacterial situation in the past summer has varied according to changing weather conditions. Cyanobacterial levels in sea areas and lakes peaked during the hottest periods of the summer in mid-July and mid-August. The cooler weather in late July and early August curbed the growth of cyanobacterial blooms for a while. In lakes, this summer’s cyanobacterial situation remained quite typical compared to previous years.
