The overall goal of this work is to refine and validate a spectrum-matching and look-up-table LUT technique for rapidly and accurately inverting remotely sensed hyperspectral reflectances to extract environmental information such as water-column optical properties, bathymetry, and bottom classification. My colleagues and I are developing and evaluating new techniques for the extraction of environmental information including water-column inherent optical properties IOPs, shallow-water bathymetry, and bottom classification from remotely-sensed hyperspectral ocean-color spectra. We address the need for rapid, automated interpretation of hyperspectral imagery. The research issues center on development and evaluation of spectrum-matching algorithms, including the generation of confidence metrics for the retrieved information.
