Description: Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche – Istituto per il Rilevamento Elettromagnetico Ambientale (CNR-IREA), Via Bassini 13, 20133 Milano, Italy. Sea surface temperature (SST) and turbidity (T) derived from Landsat-8 (L8) imagery were used to characterize river plumes in the Northern Adriatic Sea (NAS) during a significant flood event in November 2014. Sea surface salinity (SSS) from an operational coupled ocean-wave model supported the interpretation of the plumes interaction with the receiving waters and among them. There was a good agreement of the SSS, T, and SST fields at the sub-mesoscale and mesoscale delineation of the major river plumes. L8 30 m resolution enabled also the description of smaller plume structures. Sharp fronts in T and SST delimited each single river plume. The isotherms and turbidity isolines coupling varied among the plumes due to differences in particle loads and surface temperatures in the discharged waters. The different plumes reflectance spectra were related to the lithological fingerprint of the sediments in the river catchments.
