Suspended sediment concentration (SSC) is a critical parameter in the study of river sediment transport and water quality variation. This paper is focused on presenting a methodology that may be useful in estimating SSC which is of key importance in process geomorphology and hydrology. The dataset used in this paper includes measured SSC and multi-temporal Landsat ETM+ images covering most part of the Yangtze River. A newly developed regression relation between SSC and water reflectance of Band 4 appears to be able to provide a relatively accurate SSC estimate directly from Landsat ETM+ images for the Yangtze River from the upper, the middle to the lower reaches
