Abstract: Based on the measured Chl-a concentration and sea surface spectrum, the Chinese white dolphin inhabited area of Dajin Island in the Pearl River Estuary was taken as the study area, a Chl-a inversion model suitable for CASI aerial hyperspectral and MODIS satellite remote sensing images was constructed and Chl-a concentration inversion was carried out. The results show that the band ratio model has better performance based on CASI images. The Chl-a concentrations in the study area are 0.1-4.4 μg/L, and the relative average error is 14%. Inversed with MODIS, the Chl-a concentrations in the Pearl Estuary vary from 0 to 8 μg/L with relative average error of 17%. In general, the Chl-a in the sea water around Dajin Island is uniformly low. The Carlson eutrophic index calculated based on the concentration of Chl-a indicates that the sea area around Dajin Island is at the level of oligotrophic and mesotrophic, the complex hydrodynamic and high turbidity may be the main factors inhibiting the growth of phytoplankton in the study area.
