  • Spatial and temporal distribution of coloured dissolved organic matter in a hypertrophic freshwater lagoon

    Diana Vaičiūtė; Mariano Bresciani; Marco Bartoli; Claudia Giardino; Martynas Bučas (2015)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    A dataset of 224 Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) full resolution satellite images were processed to retrieve the concentration of coloured dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in a hypertrophic estuary (Curonian Lagoon, Lithuania and Russia). Images covered a period of 7 months, spanning from the ice melting (March) to the late summer (September) of 7 consecutive years (2005-2011). The aim of the study was to analyse the spatial and temporal variations of CDOM, by focusing on the ma...

    Earth observation for monitoring and mapping of cyanobacteria blooms. Case studies on five Italian lakes

    Bresciani, Mariano; Giardino, Claudia; Lauceri, Rosaria; Matta, Erica; Cazzaniga, Ilaria; Pinardi, Monica; Lami, Andrea; Austoni, Martina; Viaggiu, Emanuela; Congestri, Roberta; Morabito, Giuseppe (2016)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    Cyanobacterial blooms occur in many parts of the world as a result of entirely natural causes or human activity. Due to their negative effects on water resources, efforts are made to monitor cyanobacteria dynamics. This study discusses the contribution of remote sensing methods for mapping cyanobacterial blooms in lakes in northern Italy. Semi-empirical approaches were used to flag scum and cyanobacteria and spectral inversion of bio-optical models was adopted to retrieve chlorophyll-a (Chl-a...

    Measuring freshwater aquatic ecosystems: The need for a hyperspectral global mapping satellite mission

    Hestir, Erin Lee; Brando, Vittorio E.; Bresciani, Mariano; Giardino, Claudia; Matta, Erica; Villa, Paolo; Dekker, Arnold G. (2015)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    Freshwater ecosystems underpin global water and food security, yet are some of the most endangered ecosystems in the world because they are particularly vulnerable to land management change and climate variability. The US National Research Council's guidance to NASA regarding missions for the coming decade includes a polar orbiting, global mapping hyperspectral satellite remote sensing mission, the Hyperspectral Infrared Imager (HyspIRI), to make quantitative measurements of ecosy...

    Spatio-seasonal variability of chromophoric dissolved organic matter absorption and responses to photobleaching in a large shallow temperate lake

    M. E. Aulló-Maestro; P. Hunter; E. Spyrakos; P. Mercatoris; A. Kovács; H. Horváth; T. Preston; M. Présing; J. Torres Palenzuela; A. Tyler (2017)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    The development and validation of remote-sensing-based approaches for the retrieval of chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) concentrations requires a comprehensive understanding of the sources and magnitude of variability in the optical properties of dissolved material within lakes. In this study, spatial and seasonal variability in concentration and composition of CDOM and the origin of its variation was studied in Lake Balaton (Hungary), a large temperate shallow l...

    Remote sensing of inland waters: Challenges, progress and future directions

    Stephanie C.J. Palmer; Tiit Kutser; Peter D. Hunter (2014)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    Monitoring and understanding the physical, chemical and biological status of global inland waters are immensely important to scientists and policy makers alike.Whereas conventional monitoring approaches tend to be limited in terms of spatial coverage and temporal frequency, remote sensing has the potential to provide an invaluable complementary source of data at local to global scales. Furthermore, as sensors,methodologies, data availability and the network of researchers and enga...

    Remote sensing of macrophyte morphological traits: Implications for the management of shallow lakes

    Paolo Villa; Monica Pinardi; Viktor R. Tóth; Peter D. Hunter; Rossano Bolpagni; Mariano Bresciani (2017)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    Macrophytes are important elements of freshwater ecosystems, fulfilling a pivotal role in biogeochemical cycles. The synoptic capabilities provided by remote sensing make it a powerful tool for monitoring aquatic vegetation characteristics and the functional status of shallow lake systems in which they occur. The latest generation of airborne and spaceborne imaging sensors can be effectively exploited for mapping morphologically – and physiologically – relevant vegetation features based on th...

    Assessing Potential Algal Blooms in a Shallow Fluvial Lake by Combining Hydrodynamic Modelling and Remote-Sensed Images

    Pinardi, Monica; Fenocchi, Andrea; Giardino, Claudia; Sibilla, Stefano; Bartoli, Marco; Bresciani, Mariano (2015)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    Shallow fluvial lakes are dynamic ecosystems shaped by physical and biological factors and characterized by the coexistence of phytoplankton and macrophytes. Due to multiple interplaying factors, understanding the distribution of phytoplankton in fluvial lakes is a complex but fundamental issue, in the context of increasing eutrophication, climate change, and multiple water uses. We analyze the distribution of phytoplankton by combining remotely sensed maps of chlorophyll-a with a hydrodynami...

    Spatio-seasonal variability of chromophoric dissolved organic matter absorption and responses to photobleaching in a large shallow temperate lake

    Aullo-Maestro, María Encina; Hunter, Peter; Spyrakos, Evangelos; Mercatoris, Pierre; Kovács, Attila; Preston, Tom; Présing, Mátyás; Torres Palenzuela, Jesús; Tyler, Andrew (2017)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    The development and validation of remote sensing-based approaches for the retrieval of CDOM concentrations requires a comprehensive understanding of the sources and magnitude of variability in the optical properties of dissolved material within lakes. In this study, spatial and seasonal variability in concentration and composition of CDOM and the origin of its variation was studied in Lake Balaton (Hungary), a large temperate shallow lake in central Europe. In addition, we investigated the ef...

    A SWIR based algorithm to retrieve total suspended matter in extremely turbid waters

    Knaeps, E.; Ruddick, K.G.; Doxaran, D.; Dogliotti, A.I.; Nechad, B.; Raymaekers, D.; Sterckx, S. (2015)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    In ocean colour remote sensing, the use of Near Infra Red (NIR) spectral bands for the retrieval of Total Suspended Matter (TSM) concentration in turbid and highly turbid waters has proven to be successful. In extremely turbid waters (TSM > 100 mg L- 1) however, these bands are less sensitive to increases in TSM. Here it is proposed to use Short Wave Infra Red (SWIR) spectral bands between 1000 and 1300 nm for these extreme cases. This SWIR spectral region is subdivided into two regions, SWIR...

    Assessing macrophyte seasonal dynamics using dense time series of medium resolution satellite data

    Villa, Paolo; Bresciani, Mariano; Zinke, Peggy; Nedelcut, Florin; Gillier, Jean-Marc; Bolpagni, Rossano; Pinardi, Monica (2018)
    Projects: EC | INFORM (606865)
    Thanks to the improved spatial and temporal resolution of new generation Earth Observation missions, such as Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2, the capabilities demonstrated in the last decades by remote sensing in mapping land surface phenology of terrestrial biomes can now be tested in inland water systems. We assessed the capabilities of dense time series of medium resolution satellite data to deliver information about quantitative macrophyte phenology metrics, focusing on three temperate European ...
