Abstract : The Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean (HICO) was installed on the International Space Station on September 24, 2009. HICO is the first spaceborne hyperspectral imager optimized for environmental characterization of the coastal zone. HICO data are collected and processed to produce maps including coastal bathymetry, bottom characteristics, and water column optical properties. Here we describe the HICO data processing system and give examples of HICO products.
