The Compact Hydrographic Airborne Rapid Total Survey (CHARTS) is jointly operated and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office. This system was flown by JALBTCX over Buttermilk and Plymouth Bays in Massacheusetts, USA during Sept. 2010 to study Submersed aquatic vegetation species discrimination using an airborne hyperspectral/lidar system. A large, collaborative ground truth sampling campaign was undertaken. Components included bathymetric surveys, laboratory and diver reflectivity measurements of sediment and SAV, camera and diver SAV surveys, water column IOPs, and pigment sampling.
