The generation of reliable information for improving the understanding of hydroelectric reservoir dynamics is fundamental for guiding decision-makers to implement best management practices. In this way, we assessed the performance of different interpolation algorithms to map the bathymetry of the Tucuruí hydroelectric reservoir, located in the Brazilian(More)
Web tools for statistical investigation with an interactive and friendly interface enable users without programming knowledge to conduct their analyses. We develop an Interactive Correlation Environment (ICE) in an open access platform to perform spectral collinearity analysis for biogeochemical activity retrieval. We evaluate its performance on different(More)
Monitoring chlorophyll-a (chl-a) concentrations is important for the management of water quality, because it is a good indicator of the eutrophication level in an aquatic system. Thus, our main purpose was to develop an alternative technique to monitor chl-a in time and space through remote sensing techniques. However, one of the limitations of remote(More)
We evaluated the accuracy and sensitivity of six previously published reflectance based algorithms to retrieve Phycocyanin (PC) concentration in inland waters. We used field radiometric and pigment data obtained from two study sites located in the United States and Brazil. All the algorithms targeted the PC absorption feature observed in the water(More)
Flood maps are a crucial tool to support emergency management, disaster recovery and risk reduction planning. Traditional flood mapping methods are time-consuming, labor intensive, and costly. Our goal in this paper is to introduce a novel technique to aggregate knowledge and information to map coastal flooded areas. We proposed a Difference of Normalized(More)
Sensible and latent heat fluxes were estimated over a large tropical hydroelectric reservoir under cold front conditions. In situ and satellite data were used to adjust the bulk coefficients for momentum and heat exchanges between water and atmosphere and spatialize the sensible and latent heat fluxes over the reservoir. The results showed that during a(More)
