Abstract

We describe a method for interpreting visible-range remote soundings of the condition of inland surface waters in which we do not employ reference, a priori, information. The principal scatterer of light in the 180° direction (and about that direction) is mineral matter suspended in the surface water (the contribution of water itself and other substances in it is 2 orders of magnitude smaller). The absorbing substance are mainly the phytoplankton and the dissolved organic matter. It is shown that satellite survey data can be used to determine the mean concentrations of chlorophyll A and dissolved organic matter and their relative change across a water body without using data on the concentrations of the pigments (or other components).
