    Abstract

    Littoral sea bottom properties can be mapped from Earth observation sensors if the reflection of the sea bottom contributes a detectable part to the signal measured by the sensor. This sea bottom reflection must be separated from all other simultaneously measured portions of light for further mapping and classification procedures. Other contributors of light scattered to the sensor are atmospheric molecules and aerosols, the water surface reflection, and light scattered and absorbed due to particular properties of water constituents and the pure water itself.
