Degradation of land resources in the drainage basin of Lake Malawi and other lakes of the African Rift Valley has been widespread over the past several decades. Causes for this degradation include inappropriate agricultural practices, indiscriminate disposal of wastes, and increasing population pressure. These factors pose serious threats to water quality in these important lakes. It is difficult and costly to monitor relevant water quality conditions, such as concentrations of chlorophyll-alpha in these large lakes using ground-based methods, and consequently, information on temporal and spatial variations in water quality conditions of these water bodies is quite limited.Kidwell K, (1997), NOAA Polar Orbiter Data Users Guide, January 1997 Version ( US Department of Commerce, NOAA ... with absorption, Journal of Geophysical Research, 80:5113-5117 NOAA, (1998), NOAA Polar Orbiter Data (POD)anbsp;...
