Paper Abstract

The purpose of our research is to develop the procedure to extract the information on water quality of Lake Kitagata (heavily eutrophic lake), from multi-spectral satellite images. As the first step of our research, the controlled experiment in the laboratory, measuring the spectral reflectance of water of Lake Kitagata to search the principal components in it, has been carried out. Preliminary results of the laboratory experiment indicate that the main components of the water of Lake Kitagata are mud and plant including phytoplankton. Moreover, the results of the analyses for the direct sampling data of Lake Kitagata obtained by local government of Fukui prefecture (Fukui Prefectural Institute of Public Health and Environmental Science) are also reported.
