The Chinese Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (CMODIS) was loaded on the China's SZ‐3 spacecraft. Using an empirical line method, the CMODIS radiance is converted to the water‐leaving reflectance, and is applied to inversion of the suspended sediment concentrations in the Yangtze River estuary. The concentrations ranging between 0 mg/L and 1000 mg/L are well validated by the field measurement data. This study demonstrates an example for the feasibility of the CMODIS data for concentration retrieval of the suspended sediment.
