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

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.

Available parameters include water physico-chemical and bio-optical in situ variables such as: temperature, salinity, chlorophylle a, dissolved organic carbon, total organic carbon, nutrients, suspended particulate matter, phytoplankton, CDOM absorption and intertidal biological data (plant density, biomass, leaf areas index) and surface reflectance.
