Robustness
As I don't have seatruth data, apart from the above speaker_harris_fig_01.png,
I used results obtained on
lsiOLI_20140129 as a seatruth DTM
The result is astounding,
knowing that part of the fuzziness is caused by slight misregistration of the PAN band.
Smoothing applied

Regression

This is a test of the robustness of 4SM

Discrepancies
Three specific sources of discrepancies must be considered
  • Cloud shadows: they cause over-estimation of retrieved depths. I could not find a way to avoid it.
  • Misregistration: the 30 m re-sampled PAN band is misregistrated by one pixel in both row and line. This causes fuzziness, and overestimated depths on occasion.
  • Variation of water optical properties: they cause local over -or under- estimation of retrieved depth
Robustness
The results are much more robust than I expected!
I intend to produce
a Combined Depth raster
 out of all these results.
