The Remote Sensing Laboratory is conducting research in following
- A theoretical and empirical research on influence of optically
components of marine waters on a spectral characteristic of a water
Field experiments are proceeded during series of research
cruises on the Baltic Sea with use of the seven channel
spectrophotometer, which has been constructed in our laboratory (see
and with use of the MER 2040 Optical Profiler.
Measured spectra of the water leaving radiance are then analysed
in terms of their sensitivity to the influence of concentrations of
optically active components of marine waters: chlorophyll
total suspended matter concentration, and yellow substance absorption.
Data collected during field experiments are analysed in term of spatial
and temporal variability.
- Construction and verification of algorithms for retrieving
concentration of optically active components of the marine water
from remote sensing data.
There have been done preliminary research on usefulness of application
the NOAA AVHRR for estimation of the chlorophyll and total suspended
- Developing of processing methodology of remote sensing data with
constructed algorithms, with a special attention being given to a
possibility of systematic monitoring of specific marine basins.
- A use of remote sensing data in observation of temporal and
variability of distribution of near-surface concentrations of selected
optically active components in marine waters in different scales.
The Remote Sensing Laboratory is equipped with instruments for
experiments as well as with the hardware and software for processing
analysis of satellite data.
The particular aims of our ongoing research are:
The result of our work are published in scientific journals.
- Built up of data sets of inherent and apparent optical properties
sea water data.
- Analyse data statistically in terms of spatial and temporal
- Construct the physical model of the spectral reflectance.
- Construct satellite colour data retrieval algorithm for Baltic
