Keywords: Water Depth, BP Neural Network, Sea Surface Temperature
Abstract. The remote sensing method for water depth inversion is fast, flexible, and low in cost, which has become an important means of method for water depth detection. This paper takes the coastal area where is around Gulangyu Island as the research area. Based on the spectral reflectance, sea surface temperature (SST) and measured water depth data, a nonlinear inversion model of water depth is established by using BP neural network. Combined with the tide data, the water depth and underwater topography in coastal area is obtained. The average relative error is 0.27. The root mean square error is 1.92. The results show that the participation of sea surface temperature in the model construction can improve the inversion error of offshore water depth to a certain extent, and can help improve the accuracy of the model.
