Title: Development and testing of suspended solids algorithms : case study 2
Author: Environment Agency - National Centre for Environmental Data and Surveillance
Document Type: Monograph
Accurate visualisation of suspended solids concentration gradients using aerial surveillance provides the only realistic means of estimating suspended solids distribution over the coastal zone. This has a clear use for the determination of the fate of pollutants in the coastal zone and for assessing areas prone to flooding. The subject has been extensively investigated by remote surveillance specialists in the UK and overseas, with a range of algorithms being developed to calibrate aerial imagery for suspended solids concentration. This study is the most intensive known application of established techniques to aerial imagery collected in coastal waters of England and Wales
