SWIM algorithm for derivation of substrate hue and water depths - Shark Bay, W.A. case-study
The SWIM algorithm was designed to derive substrate colour information in shallow marine environments utilising visible spectral imagery. This is achieved by first deriving bathymetry (water depths) and removing this effect on image contrast.
