The advent of spaceborne hyperspectral instruments offers the potential to yield more information on aquatic particles. The HYPERMAQ will develop algorithms to retrieve information on particle size and type and where possible algae species. Fieldwork to validate these algorithms will be made. Continuous measurements will also be made for satellite product validation, supported by the design of an autonomous rotating hyperspectral spectroradiometer system.
