A local algorithm for estimation of yellow substance (gelbstoff) in coastal waters from SeaWiFS data: Pearl River estuary, China
Abstract:A general three-component ocean colour model was used for simulation of water reflectance by inputting sea water component data measured in the Pearl River estuary of southern China. Based on the simulated reflectance data and Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) sea water component data a local algorithm for estimation of DOC concentration was developed. The application of the local algorithm shows that the estimated DOC is in close agreement in terms of concentration and distribution pattern with the sea water component data.
