Study on Retrieval of Chlorophyll-a Concentration Based on Landsat OLI Imagery in the Haihe River, China
AbstractThe optical complexity of urban waters makes the remote retrieval of chlorophyll-a (Chl-a) concentration a challenging task. In this study, Chl-a concentration was retrieved using reflectance data of Landsat OLI images. Chl-a concentration in the Haihe River of China was obtained using mathematical regression analysis (MRA) and an artificial neural network (ANN). A regression model was built based on an analysis of the spectral reflectance and water quality sampling data. Remote sensing inversion results of Chl-a concentration were obtained and analyzed based on a verification of the algorithm and application of the models to the images. The analysis results revealed that the two models satisfactorily reproduced the temporal variation based on the input variables. In particular, the ANN model showed better performance than the MRA model, which was reflected in its higher accuracy in the validation. This study demonstrated that Landsat Operational Land Imager (OLI) images are suitable for remote sensing monitoring of water quality and that they can produce high-accuracy inversion results.
