Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The application of satellite technology for monitoring surface water quality and the development of a hydrooptical model to determine optically characteristic water quality components and relate them to the spectral characteristic of light reflected from the water surface are described. The model is a simple regression-type hydro-optical model developed as part of a joint Soviet-Hungarian programme on remote sensing. The model has proved applicable for simultaneous interpretation of suspended solids, chlorophyll-a and dissolved organic carbon components of water. Results have been checked against river, sea and lake test areas. (from authors' abstract)
