The Remote Sensing Laboratory
The Staff of the Remote Sensing Laboratory
The Remote Sensing Laboratory is conducting research in following subjects:
A theoretical and empirical research on influence of optically active components
of marine waters on a spectral characteristic of a water leaving radiance.
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 photos), 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 concentration,
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
Developing of processing methodology of remote sensing data with use of
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 spatial 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 field
experiments as well as with the hardware and software for processing and
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 of the
sea water data.
Analyse data statistically in terms of spatial and temporal variability.
Construct the physical model of the spectral reflectance.
Construct satellite colour data retrieval algorithm for Baltic Sea.
