Paper Abstract

A multi-stage experiment has been conducted over Lake Ontario during the summer season of 1979 in conjunction with CZCS overpasses. Airborne data were acquired with a multi-spectral 11 channel imager, a two channel experimental pushbroom imager, a profiling 4 channel photometer and a 500 spectral element profiling spectrometer. Ground based radiance measurements of the atmospheric attenuation coefficient and sky radiance were made at six wavelengths. The airborne and atmospheric measurements were made to coincide with CZCS overpasses and in-situ measurements were made from a ship which traversed the lake along the same line from the Niagara River to Toronto during the same day. The remote experimental data will be corrected for atmospheric effects and inverted to predict water quality parameters. The experiment and some preliminary results will be discussed.
