Florida Estuary Optics 2009-2012

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Small boat surveys were conducted in four Florida estuaries along the northern Gulf of Mexico from September 2009 through January 2012. The systems selected represent a range of optical characteristics (e.g., high vs. low particulate loads) and were of sufficient size to be adequately resolved with remote sensing imagery. The systems sampled were Pensacola Bay, Choctawhatchee Bay, St. Andrews Bay, and St. Joseph Bay. Field data collection included discrete water samples, profiling water quality data, and above/below water in-situ hyperspectral optical measures..

This dataset is associated with the following publication: Sari Austuti, I., D. Mishra, S. Mishra, and B. Schaeffer. Spatio-temporal dynamics of inherent optical properties in oligotrophic northern Gulf of Mexico estuaries. Continental Shelf Research. Elsevier BV, AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 166: 92-107, (2018).
