Paper Abstract

Water quality assessment and monitoring from remote sensing data is strongly affected by the accuracy of the atmospheric effect correction. Two algorithms, based respectively on Modtran 4 and on 6SV radiative transfer codes, and an empirical image-based method have been compared, also examining the sensitivity to different parameterizations of water vapour content and aerosols. The experimentation has been carried out on a specific case study, lake Qarun, a conservation area located in the Fayyum Oasis (Egypt). Simple water quality indicators have been computed by multispectral and hyperspectral data and compared to literature data.
