Transmissometry and suspended matter in lower Chesapeake Bay - Correlation with ERTS multispectral imageryThe use of multispectral imagery from the Earth Resources Technology Satellite to quantitatively monitor turbidity and suspended matter of estuarine waters is being evaluated in this study. Synoptic measurements of surface-water characteristics are being made on three baselines in lower Chesapeake Bay in synchrony with satellite overpasses. Turbidity is measured as transmittance by a continuously recording transmissometer, and suspended matter is collected by filtration. Preliminary correlations to ERTS multispectral imagery have been made by microdensitometry. Final correlations will be made from the bulk tape format.
