The signal of water is challengingly small in comparison to the atmosphere and for small to intermediate inland waters e.g. the adjacency effect forms a challenge. (IOCCG, 2018). Therefore atmospheric correction and adjacency effect correction are extremely important processing steps for deriving water-leaving reflectance and higher level water quality products.
This online workshop aims to:
• Present ongoing R&D project results on:
Atmospheric correction for inland and coastal waters
Atmospheric correction validation with in situ data for inland and coastal waters
• To provide recommendations (incl. additional spectral bands) for atmospheric correction and validation for future Copernicus water quality products
• To prioritize recommendations which will be included in the Water-ForCE Roadmap for Copernicus water services.
