Abstract

We've organized and participated in seven hyperspectral flyover campaigns at six NOAA National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRs) since October, 2002. A University of Nebraska aircraft with an AISA sensor (Specim Imaging, Ltd) was flown at each site. Each flyover included coincident field survey work. Across all sites, we collected imagery and field survey data for marsh vegetation classifications and phytoplankton chlorophyll estimations in local estuarine and near-shore open water habitats. Our presentation addresses product development and will review issues of close-range spectral libraries and algorithms, atmospheric corrections, identification of algal blooms, and classification accuracies.
