Surface reflectance measured by satellite remote sensing can be used to evaluate optical water quality in lakes and reservoirs.
This resource contains surface reflectance data from the Landsat 5 and Landsat 7 sensors at locations throughout the Great Salt Lake, Utah Lake, and Farmington Bay in Utah, USA. Calibration data contain near-coincident samples of surface chlorophyll (from the Utah Division of Water Quality, USGS, and Jordan River-Farmington Bay Water Quality Council), while historical reflectance data contain only surface reflectance data over the historic record of 1984-2016. Reflectance data are provided for each of the visible, near infrared, and shortwave infrared bands (scaled from 0-10000). These data were downloaded via Google Earth Engine, which hosts the surface reflectance products that are produced by the USGS. Cloud Mask bands indicate data with potential cloud/haze/atmospheric interferences (any value >1).
