INTERCOMPARISON OF DESIS, SENTINEL-2 (MSI) AND SENTINEL-3 (OLCI) DATA FOR WATER COLOUR APPLICATIONS
Keywords: hyperspectral, multispectral, atmospheric correction, inland waters, coastal waters
Abstract. In this work, we investigate the potential of DESIS hyperspectral data for water colour applications as preparation for the exploitation of data from the future EnMAP mission. We show results on the intercomparison of Level 2 data of the DESIS sensor, Sentinel-2 MultiSpectral Instrument (S2-MSI) and Sentinel-3 Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (S3-OLCI) processed with the Polymer atmospheric correction. Examples of mapping of water quality parameters in inland and coastal waters is provided for different ecosystems (e.g. lagoon, clear lakes, estuaries). First results of Polymer applied to DESIS data at different study regions show similar spatial distribution of chlorophyll-a concentration (Chl-a) to S2-MSI and S3-OLCI.
