Time-dependent changes in the optical properties of sediments detected with remote sensing


Completed: September 2004 - September 2005

Hyperspectral VIS, NIR and SWIR reflectances generated by HyMAP are used to characterize the main intertidal sediment habitat types occurring in the Westerscheldt Estuary. The Molenplaat has been selected as case study area and was overflow five times during the low tide period. The In-Situ Erosion Flume (ISEF) has been deployed on site to measure erosion characteristics and sediment samples have been taken for further analysis.
