Linear Model Methodology - Inputs

Juan Arango

I will like to get your input in a project that I am working on. In
advanced thank you so much for all your comments.

So, I am trying to develop some linear models that explain some water
quality parameters, using the input from different remote sensing
satellites, in a lagoon that approximately has surface area of
approximately 19000 m2.  For that purpose, I collected some in-situ
measurements at 12 randomly selected locations inside the lagoon. I did
some ordinary kriging to calculate what is happening inside the pond (given
the fact that I only collected data at 12 points inside the pond). Now I am
at the stage where I can start developing those linear models.

Based on that, my question is the following - Should the linear models be
constructed using only the collected data, or should I develop those models
also considering the interpolated data. If the last scenario is the most
preferable option, should I perform a point value extraction using the
centroid of a grid?

Here is some (not all) of the literature that I been reading to complete
this project.

Sub-Alpine Lake Using Landsat Imagery”, The Science of the Total

Thank you so much for all your input.
