A dual differential radiometer was tested on numerous eastern United States lakes and reservoirs. Remotely sensed data were compared with ground-truth chlorophyll a values. Results indicate that the instrument has only limited application in the remote sensing of chlorophyll a in the nation's lakes. At its present state of development, its use should be confined to large, deep, relatively clear water bodies in conjunction with ground-truth and surface survey efforts.
