Lake Constance is the third largest lake in Central Europe. The river Rhine, which passes the lake, imports a significant amount of mineralic particles. Their transport and sedimentation within the lake is of importance for a number of applications, for example ship traffic, pumping stations for extraction of drinking water, hydraulic engineering, fishery, and ecology. Only satellites offer a cost-effective way for obtaining time series of the spatial distribution of suspended matter in such a large lake. The potential of satellitebased monitoring of suspended matter is investigated using MERIS and MODIS time series from 2003, addressing two specific questions: (1) Are these sensors suited to derive useful time series of medium- and large-scale patterns of suspended matter in Lake Constance? (2) Are the quantitative results from the two sensors comparable?
