NASA ARSET Advanced Learning - Part 2: Remote Sensing of Coastal Ecosystems - Penetration of Light in the Water Column

"Surface water samples are used for measuring Colored Dissolved Organic Matter (CDOM), Total Suspended Matter, and Chlorophyll."

What does the color of the water bodies tell us?

Through this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify the main optical properties of the water column and how these affect the remote sensing signal from benthic components
  • Distinguish some of the field measurements necessary for validation and calibration of ocean color data

Attendees who have not completed the Fundamentals of Remote Sensing may not be prepared for the pace of the training.

This training was created by NASA's Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET). ARSET is a part of NASA's Applied Science's Capacity Building Program. Learn more about ARSET HERE. In case of any questions regarding the session, please feel free to reach out to Ana I. Prados, Ph.D., Research Associate Professor, Joint Center for Earth Systems Technology (JCET), University of Maryland Baltimore County at
