Abstract: Many satellite remote sensing missions designed for land or meteorological applications are designed with a broad “panchromatic” band with higher spatial resolution than the standard multispectral bands. At one extreme the very high spatial resolution Pléiades mission gives 2.8 m multispectral data and 70 cm panchromatic data on demand. At the other extreme the geostationary SEVIRI sensor gives data every 15
minutes (5 minutes in Rapid Scan mode over Europe) with a spatial resolution at nadir (0°, 0°) of 3x3 km for the red (0.6μm) band and 1x1 km for the panchromatic band. The present study investigates the exploitation of these very broad spectral bands for improving the spatial resolution of maps of suspended particulate matter, with a focus on the Landsat-8 30 m multispectral and 15 m panchromatic bands.
Summary: This poster describes and validates a method for improving the spatial resolution of Landsat-8 data over water using the 15m panchromatic band.References: Neukermans et al (2012).
