Abstract: An 8-band WorldView-2 satellite image was used to derive the backscattering coefficient of suspended sediment and absorption coefficient of colored dissolved organic matter in a coastal reservoir. Different water types could be visually distinguished in the RGB color composite image of the study area. The additional spectral bands (compared to other satellites of similar spatial resolution) enable better modeling of the reflectance spectra which is essential when a spectral fitting technique is used for retrieval of the water quality parameters.
