3D Turbidity assessment through Integration of MultiBeam Echo-sounding and optical Remote Sensing

Acronym: TIMBERS
Period: April 2019 till December 2021
Status: Completed

Institutes (3)  Top 

The project goal is to produce 3D turbidity profiles of seawater combining optical remote sensing for quantifying the turbidity in the top layer with multi-beam echo-sounding (MBES) for determining suspended matter profiles in the water column down from the position of the echo-sounder. We will develop a method to derive vertical profiles of turbidity from measured MBES backscatter values and merge these with satellite observation derived data.
