Paper Abstract

The factors sensitive to suspended sediment concentration (SSC) with both strong correlation and evident physical meaning are found step by step with the data collected from Sheyang River estuary. These factors combined by reflectance of 605 nm, 715 nm and 810 nm which near the reflectance peaks of turbid water have strong correlations with SSC. The results of the model established by the factor R605xR715/( R605-R810) were consistent well with real distribution laws of SSC and its relative accuracy arrived over 65%. It shows the advantage of hyperspectral sensors on monitoring SSC in offshore area.
