Ocean Colour Remote Sensing
Abstract: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.
