Abstract:

Optical properties of the Baltic Sea are dominated by coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM). High concentration of CDOM is probably one of the reasons why standard chlorophyll-retrieval algorithms fail badly in the Baltic Sea. Our aim was to test can CDOM be mapped by remote sensing instruments in coastal waters of relatively CDOM-rich environments like the Baltic Sea. The results show that sensors with high radiometric resolution, such as Advanced Land Imager (ALI), can be used for mapping CDOM in a wide concentration range. The ALI image also showed that optical properties of coastal waters are extremely variable. CDOM concentration may vary 4-5-fold in two adjacent 30 m pixels. This indicates a need for relatively high spatial resolution (30 m or less) remote sensing data in monitoring coastal environments.
