Processing and analysis of multi and hyperspectral satellite images for the production of maps of lake water quality parameters via EURAXESS

Istituto per il Rilevamento Elettromagnetico dell’Ambiente - CNR

Production and analysis of Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 satellite data and hyperspectral images for the generation of data corrected by atmospheric effects and other radiometric disturbances (specular reflection, adjacency) and subsequent processing by means of bio-optical and semi-empirical modeling, for the estimation of bio-geophysical quantities (e.g. chlorophyll, suspended solids), for the ecological study of lake environments. Generation and analysis of maps of submerged vegetation in shallow lake areas and correlation analysis between the maps obtained from satellite data and water quality data measured in situ.
