ESTIMATION COD MN IN GUANGZHOU SECTION OF PEARL RIVER BASED ON GF-1 IMAGES
Due to the way that remote sensing works, it has natural advantage to detect optical constituents in waters. And many kinds of inversion models were constructed based on the three main optical constituents, namely chlorophyll-a (Chl-a), suspended particulate matter (SPM), colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM). Except Chl-a used as an indicator of eutrophication, however, the public generally cares less about other two parameters and is more familiar with Grade I ~ V scheme for utilization and protection purposes. Notice the three main optical constituents are also organic-related to some extent. It offers a possible way to estimate COD Mn via remote sensing. According to field measurement conducted along the Guangzhou section of Pearl River (GPR for short), the spatial variation of COD Mn in GPR shows some kinds of geographical feature, so does the correlation between COD Mn and water color constituents. It indicated the complicated contribution of COD Mn in GPR or some other urban rivers. Based on the band setting of GF-1 satellite, two kinds of inversion model of COD Mn in GPR were finally constructed. One directly achieved COD Mn from regression models of which predictors were different band combinations in different channels of GPR. To make the study more practical, the other one first provided empirical models of the three optical constituents, and then estimated COD Mn of GPR based on its relationship with optical constituents. After all, Chl-a, SPM and CDOM could be distinguished optically, and remote sensing models of these three constituents in other studies may also be available.
