Abstract:

The long-term goal of this research is to develop remote sensing tools for assessing the biological and optical properties of the littoral ocean. Recent experience with aircraft imaging spectrometers has demonstrated their suitability for assessing water column and bottom optical properties in the littoral zone. The goal is to make imaging spectrometry practical by building a low cost imaging spectrometer optimized for the coastal ocean that is suitable for operation on manned or unmanned aircraft.
