Shallow water bathymetry at Lake Tahoe for AVIRIS data
Fisher, Thomas M.

One of the United States Navy Oceanographic community's roles is to keep an accurate worldwide database of oceanic bathymetry. In the littoral zones, much of the data is out of date or is unavailable. Stuffle et al. (1996) utilized a method addressing shallow water areas using the Hyperspectral Digital Imagery Collection Experiment (HYDICE) sensor on a small region in Lake Tahoe. As a follow-on, this work used a different sensor, the Airborne Visible/InfraRed Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) sensor, and covered a much larger area on the opposite side of the lake. Principle components analysis (PCA) of the region of interest (ROI) revealed nine spectrally unique water classes. A priori knowledge of one bottom type in this ROI allowed insertion of a known bottom reflectance spectrum into a derived computer algorithm that, using also diffuse attenuation coefficients from HYDROLIGHT and reflectance just below the water surface derived from AVIRIS data, allowed computation of the bottom depth. Result s compared within 30% of depth from a USGS bathymetric chart. This method holds much promise in clear waters, and next needs to be tested in the coastal ocean environment.
