The H2020 CERTO project
(Copernicus Evolution – Research for harmonised and Transitional water Observation)
CERTO has produced harmonised water quality datasets suitable for the monitoring of the continuum of water bodies (from rivers and lakes to transitional to coastal).
The project is using Sentinel-2 MSI and Sentinel-3 OLCI data to map water quality using state-of-the-art methods. Factors that have historically restricted remote sensing observations over transitional water bodies such as atmospheric interference in the satellite signal and the impacts of land adjacency and bathymetry effects were investigated and mitigation techniques were developed.
The CERTO sites include three lagoons (Curonian, Razelm-Sinoe and Venice).
