Abstract : Ground truth measurements were collected during high resolution flyover tests designed to maximize resolution of a multispectral scanner. Tests were conducted on 27 and 31 August and 1 September 1981 at sites providing different water mass types and bottom reflectances. Measurements of water level, wave heights, surface and water column temperatures, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, diffuse and beam attenuation coefficient, and secchi depth were obtained. The environmental conditions which affected scanner performance are summarized. (Author)
