The aim of this note is to test an empirical algorithm using spectral curvature theory at selected SeaWiFS hyerspectral bands, in order to estimate the chlorophyll pigment concentrations in the coastal waters of Baie des Chaleurs (Gulf of St. Lawrence). Simulated SeaWiFS algorithms require the measurement of reflectances with a high sensitive spectroradiometer as well as the responsitivity of SeaWiFS sensor at each band. Volume reflectances were taken using a hand held spectroradiometer simultaneously to measurements of in situ chlorophyll pigment concentrations. An empirical algorithm of the form: log (chlorophyll pigments) 0.92-0.46 Delta2 log R0sea(555) yields an estimate of chlorophyll pigment concentrations within a mean deltaC / C of 23%.
