Abstract
    The erodability of mudflats is strongly determined by biophysical characteristics of sediments, such as silt, sand, benthic microalgae and water content. Mudflats are often large and inaccessible areas, leading to dangerous and time-consuming in situ measurement campaigns. Furthermore the collected point samples are unrepresentative for the spatial variability of these coastal systems. Airborne hyperspectral remote sensing is identified to be effective for the collection of a synoptic overview of biophysical characteristics of sediments in mudflats. An automated method for the classification of hyperspectral images acquired by the Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) is proposed. The method is based on a linear transformation of each spectrum in the hyperspectral cube. Comparable classification results are obtained using a standard classification method employed in hyperspectral image processing. The superiority of the proposed method lies in its robustness, computational requirements, repeatability, interpretability and objectiveness.
