2014 Taylorsville-Harsha Lakes Flyover - Water Chemsitry Data Used for Portability Study

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This data is a large suite of coincident surface water observations for many different physical, chemical, and biological properties of the water in two reservoirs; one in central Kentucky (Taylorsville Lake) and the other in Southwest Ohio (Harsha Lake) at the times a flyover occurred to take hyperspectral images of each lake’s surface. Sites were visited across each reservoir within 2 hours of image acquisition by using several boat crews. The data could be useful to others with interest in remote sensing of water quality or studying spatial patterns of water quality at one particular point in time from two different reservoirs.

This dataset is associated with the following publication: Johansen, R., R. Beck, J. Nowosad, C. Nietch, M. Xu, S. Shu, B. Yang, H. Liu, E. Emery, M. Reif, J. Harwood, J. Young, D. Macke, M. Martin, G. Stillings, R. Stumpf, and H. Su. Evaluating the Portability of Satellite Derived Chlorophyll-a Algorithms for Temperate Inland Lakes using Airborne Hyperspectral Imagery and Dense Surface Observations. Harmful Algae. Elsevier B.V., Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS, 76: 35-46, (2018).
