This unit introduces the topic water optics and water colour remote sensing. We start with an introduction on the importance of remote sensing for aquatic ecosystems, interaction of light with matter, inherent and apparent optical properties, effects of various water constituents on the water reflectance. We continue with water colour remote sensing, data processing levels, atmospheric correction, in-water algorithms and present and future satellite sensors. The last part shows examples of application and discuss the advantages and challenges of hyperspectral sensors.
