WISE-Man Project (WaterSat Imaging Spectrometer Experiment), characterization of shallow inland and coastal waters: intertidal zone data

Dataset include parameters related to the sampling of the intertidal zone, such as biomass and leaf area index of macroalgae, chlorophyll a concentration in sediment and bottom reflectance.

The WaterSat Imaging Spectrometer Experiment (WISE) for optically shallow inland and coastal waters assessment (the WISE-Man project)’s objective was to demonstrate the potential of hyperspectral imagery for mapping bathymetry, water column quality (or inherent optical properties) and retrieve bottom properties in order to respond to the pressing needs of science (e.g. ecology, geomorphology, coastal risk), resource management and defense operation. Within the framework of WISE-Man, an intensive fieldwork campaign was conducted in the Manicouagan; Baie-Comeau region in August 2019.

This project is part of the Coastal Environmental Baseline Program Initiative under the Oceans Protection Plan of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
