Water Quality Continuum Atmospheric Correction Workshop
Within the H2020 Water-ForCE project a Roadmap will be developed for the water component of the future Copernicus services. 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. The objectives of this workshop are:
- To present ongoing R&D project results on i) atmospheric correction for inland and coastal waters and ii) 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
Recommendations will be included in the Water-ForCE Roadmap.
