Abstract

Bathymetry LIDAR technology has proved to be cost-effective for mapping coastal waters if the system operated in a favorable situation. Water turbidity is one the most significant factors that affects the performance of the bathymetric system. However, it is rarely monitored regularly. Knowledge of water turbidity in coastal water, such as seasonal variations and spatial extend, would be beneficial for planning a bathymetric LIDAR mission. In this paper, Aqua MODIS imageries and in-situ inherent optical properties were used to derive water turbidity parameters of coastal water (water depth less than 30 m) in Taiwan with the secchi depth ranging from 5 m to 20 m.
