Abstract:

Development of algorithms for improved retrievals of inherent water optical properties IOP from satellite imagery of coastal waters with current and future sensors utilizing 1 NIR and UV channels, 2 water polarization characteristics and 3 advanced atmospheric correction schemes. Analysis of methodologies for the enhancement of algorithms for IOP retrieval from reflectance spectra based on additional measurements in NIR and UV through a the use of reflectance characteristics obtained from NIR measurements as additional constraints in basic inversion models, b expansion of modeled and measured reflectance spectra and bio-optical models of coastal waters into the UV zone for the improved separation of CDOM and phytoplankton components.
