MONCAYO-ERASO, Ricardo Javier. Mapping of regional transparency dynamics on inland waters using reflectance products MOD09GA. Entramado [online]. 2017, vol.13, n.2, pp.270-276. ISSN 1900-3803.

The water transparency is an indicator of the quality of this resource, and it has been demonstrated that it is possible to estimate the depth measured with the Secchi Disk in generated images by orbital platforms with the use of empirical algorithms. Empirical models correlate the intensity of the pixel captured by the image in the 645nm band and Secchi Disk measurements. This investigative work was carried out in the Porto Primavera reservoir located on the border that divides São Paulo, Matto Grosso do Sul and Paraná states. In order to calibrate and validate the correlation model (surface reflectance Vs Secchi Disk measurements) two field sampling campaigns were carried out (October 2014 and April 2015). The calibration model found shows that there is a coefficient of determination that can be considered adequate for the estimation of Secchi Disk (R2 = 0.8), the errors associated with these observations were also low (RMSE = 0.47m). The spatial dynamics of the Secchi Disk show that the Porto Primavera reservoir presents the lowest values for this variable in the margin located in the state of Matto Grosso do Sul and in the autumn season of the southern hemisphere this condition can extend to the northern part of the lake.
