LIDAR DTM data reveals that this is a success for 4SM,
although vast expanses are affected by turbid waters
Thanks to the DTM, I can decide
These scenes are NOT worthy of shallow water work by 4SM,
Another nice case for "semi-analytical" methods to show their supremacy: see DigitalGlobe and EOMAP
4SMLUT: a final challenge to map the spatial variations of waters optical properties
But I note that Hernandez's 2016 PhD work
|With a DTM at hand, I can decide |
which operational practices in 4SM should be ruled out
and which are worth investigating further
I've done my best to try and make sense of these images under 4SM,
using Landsat 8 and Hyperion images: NO WAY!
Looks like there is a curse on La Parguera!
with NOAA's LIDAR seatruth dataset PR_BATHY_4M_Mean_NNresample
This scene is marred by heterogeneous waters, under the dual influence of
coastal pollution from lands masses, rivers and cities
and west-bound flow of very clear oceanic waters from the Sargasso Sea.
