Paper Abstract

The modeling of oceanic remote sensing reflectance typically employs absorption and scattering parameters for the various constituents present in marine waters. Trans-spectral light sources such as fluorescence and Raman scattering are not generally parameterized in these models. Bioluminescence is not considered to be a significant contributor to water-leaving radiance measurements obtained mid-day, and has not been included in the models either. In this paper we present evidence of effects due to these three phenomena by comparing model results to remote sensing reflectances measured at several stations during the 1988 California Coastal Transition Zone (CTZ) Experiment. Differences between modeled and measured Rrs(A) values are discussed from the perspective of in-situ light source contributions.
