Paper Abstract

Red tide not only destroys marine fishery production and deteriorates the marine environment, it also causes human health problems. In China, the East China Sea has a high incidence of red tide disasters. Remote sensing technology has been proven an effective means of monitoring red tides. Spectral information of red tide water is an important basis for establishing red tide remote sensing monitoring models. This paper analyzes and compares the differences between red tide event spectral curves and multiyear monthly averaged spectral curves of MODIS data from July 2002 to June 2012, and develops a red tide monitoring algorithm based on the background field, to extract red tide information of the East China Sea. With the application of the algorithm in the East China Sea, it reveals that it can effectively determine the location of red tide and extract red tide information.
