Sediment plumes are typically easy to identify in satellite imagery and there is a great interest in being able to measure suspended sediment concentrations (SSC) from space or airborne instruments. The standard approach to this problem to date has been to try to determine the spectral signatures of different suspended particle mixtures, either empirically or theoretically, and to thereby develop transfer functions that convert multi-band reflectances to SSC. Although this approach has met with… CONTINUE READING
