Satellite Remote Sensing of Water Quality
Satellite remote sensing is a well established tool for the classification and monitoring of water quality in big water bodies such as oceans and lakes. Satellite sensed data has been successfully used to monitor concentrations of chlorophyll a, dissolved organic matter and suspended solids (Alfoldi 1982).
