Paper Abstract

At present, a topic of great interest for the scientific community is to obtain an automatic monitoring system of red tide blooming organisms. The advances in automated monitoring systems have demonstrated that this automation is possible. In this paper, an analysis of the problems in the automated identification of red tide phytoplankton blooming is presented, using an automatic optical-digital system. Specifically, interclass size differences of organisms, different rotation and localization of the organisms in a microscope field and interclass of these same properties. The analysis was done automatically using a liquid crystal display device as interface of the digital with the optical part. This analysis is done for the first time in a hybrid system in real time.
