Ocean color satellite sounding data and fluorometric passive measurements of the sea brightness coefficient obtained aboard the ship were used in elaboration of a hyperspectral biooptical algorithm for the Gulf of Peter the Great. This algorithm will permit to reconstitute the chlorophyll-A concentration value and the dissolved organic matter absorption coefficient of sea upwelling radiation spectrums obtained aboard the ship. In future, algorithm customization and simplification will allow for its application to the sea color satellite sounding data. Sea reflecting capacity measurements were carried out with a hyperspectral spectrophotometer aboard the ship, by the procedure based on NASA protocols. This chapter explores ocean colour remote sensing.
Atmosphere Aerosol, Phytoplankton and its Influence on Climate Forming in the Pacific Ocean: Measurement New Methods Atmosphere Aerosol, Phytoplankton and its Influence on Climate Forming in the Pacific Ocean: Measurement New Methods is a collection of new articles by young academics, students and PhD students who participated in the 1st International Sailing Conference of Climate Forcing, held on the board the Sailing Training Ship Nadezhda in the Sea of Japan and the Okhtosk Sea in August 2010. The collection presents a vivid overview of current problems in the research fields of atmosphere aerosol, phytoplankton communities, volcanic activities and hydroacoastics in order to investigate climate change's influence on phytoplankton communities. This collection of articles will be of interest to researchers and specialists in the fields of atmosphere and ocean monitoring, and climate forcing.
