Bio-optical Modeling and Remote Sensing of Inland Waterspresents the latest developments, state-of-the-art, and future perspectives of bio-optical modeling for each optically active component of inland waters, providing a broad range of applications of water quality monitoring using remote sensing. Rather than discussing optical radiometry theories, the authors explore the applications of these theories to inland aquatic environments.

The book not only covers applications, but also discusses new possibilities, making the bio-optical theories operational, a concept that is of great interest to both government and private sector organizations. In addition, it addresses not only the physical theory that makes bio-optical modeling possible, but also the implementation and applications of bio-optical modeling in inland waters.

Early chapters introduce the concepts of bio-optical modeling and the classification of bio-optical models and satellite capabilities both in existence and in development. Later chapters target specific optically active components (OACs) for inland waters and present the current status and future direction of bio-optical modeling for the OACs. Concluding sections provide an overview of a governance strategy for global monitoring of inland waters based on earth observation and bio-optical modeling.

  • Presents comprehensive chapters that each target a different optically active component of inland waters
  • Contains contributions from respected and active professionals in the field
  • Presents applications of bio-optical modeling theories that are applicable to researchers, professionals, and government agencies
Mishra's research expertise is in the area of application of geospatial science to monitor environment particularly vegetation and water resources in the southeastern U.S. His research on radiative transfer model and water column correction procedure to map underwater coral reef habitats from space have been citied in numerous journal ...
