Leave difficult cases
to semi-analytical methods!
Further to Lyzenga et al's empirical ratio method: water volume reflectance is an important variable.
No need for atmospheric correction.
Uses Jerlov's data for optical calibration.

Just use a X86 or AMD64 laptop
|Albert & Mobley's analytical model, 2003, is used commercially by EOMAP and PROTEUS |
For operational purpose, we need a way out:
the simplified shallow water Radiative Transfer Equation
...BOA radiance by Philpot
...BOA albedo by Maritorena et al
These BOA models require formal atmospheric correction
|Following Lyzenga, Maritorena, Jerlov and Kirk, passive optical bathymetry is operational and practical |
"operates" the simplified shallow water RTE
Being a "ratio method", it works for TOA radiance as well
4SM only uses the satellite image: no atmospheric correction or field data required
Yields both retrieved depth and water column corrected radiance ready for bottom typing
No need for field data to retrieve depth in meters
just determine Ki/Kj for wavelengths i and j (Lyzenga), then derive spectral K in m-1 for all visible bands
