Lakes and reservoirs as regulators of carbon cycling and climate
We explore the role of lakes in carbon cycling and global climate, examine the mechanisms influencing carbon pools and transformations in lakes, and discuss how the metabolism of carbon in the inland
A global inventory of lakes based on high‐resolution satellite imagery
An accurate description of the abundance and size distribution of lakes is critical to quantifying limnetic contributions to the global carbon cycle. However, estimates of global lake abundance are
Quantitative detection of chlorophyll in cyanobacterial blooms by satellite remote sensing

The extent of cyanobacterial blooms has been mapped using different satellite sensors from weather satellites to synthetic aperture radars. Quantitative detection of chlorophyll in cyanobacterial
First Experiences in Mapping Lake Water Quality Parameters with Sentinel-2 MSI Imagery
Preliminary results allow us to assume that Sentinel-2 will be a valuable tool for lake monitoring and research, especially taking into account that the data will be available routinely for many years, the imagery will be frequent, and free of charge.
Passive optical remote sensing of cyanobacteria and other intense phytoplankton blooms in coastal and inland waters

  • 20 August 2009
Increased frequency and extent of potentially harmful blooms in coastal and inland waters world-wide require the development of methods for operative and reliable monitoring of the blooms over vast
Using Satellite Remote Sensing to Estimate the Colored Dissolved Organic Matter Absorption Coefficient in Lakes
Given the importance of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) for the structure and function of lake ecosystems, a method that could estimate the amount of CDOM in lake waters over large geographic
Modeling spectral discrimination of Great Barrier Reef benthic communities by remote sensing instruments
Remote sensing can monitor coral reef health, provided the benthic substrates are spectrally resolvable through the water column and surface. We studied the separability of eight substrate types
