Moreno-Madrinan, MJ; Fischer, AM (2013). Performance of the MODIS FLH algorithm in estuarine waters: a multi-year (2003-2010) analysis from Tampa Bay, Florida (USA). INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF REMOTE SENSING, 34(19), 6467-6483.

Abstract
Although satellite technology promises great usefulness for the consistent monitoring of chlorophyll- concentration in estuarine and coastal waters, the complex optical properties commonly found in these types of waters seriously challenge the application of this technology. Blue-green ratio algorithms are susceptible to interference from water constituents, different from phytoplankton, which dominate the remote-sensing signal. Alternatively, modelling and laboratory studies have not shown a decisive position on the use of near-infrared (NIR) algorithms based on the sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence signal. In an analysis of a multi-year (2003-2010) in situ monitoring data set from Tampa Bay, Florida (USA), as a case, this study assesses the relationship between the fluorescence line height (FLH) product from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) and chlorophyll-alpha.
