MERIS water product validation in Belgian waters (BELMER)

Research project PX/8/EO/08 (Research action PX)


Persons :

  • Dr.  RUDDICK Kevin - Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences ()
    Coordinator of the project
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/1/2006-31/10/2008

Description :

The objective of the BELMER project is to validate the MERIS water products for Belgian coastal waters and neighbouring French, UK and Dutch waters, providing a quantitative statement of product accuracy and recommendations for improvements in the scientific algorithms, where appropriate. In particular the problems reported by the MERIS validation and user communities of turbid water atmospheric correction, case 2 water chlorophyll retrieval, adjacency effects (straylight), moderate sunglint, spatio-temporal variability of specific inherent optical properties and bottom reflectance will be addressed.
