Paper Abstract

Airborne laser fluorosensor measurements of hydrographic parameters have been performed in the German Bight and in the Baltic Sea. The results are compared with data measured with a luminescence spectrometer on board research vessels. Fluorescence spectra excited at different excitation wavelengths (on board the ship) give us information on fluorescent gelbstoff components in natural water. These ground truth data have proved the remotely detected data of gelbstoff in coastal waters. Recent measurements made in the Canary Islands region demonstrate that gelbstoff fluorescence can be registered also in clear open ocean waters with low concentrations of this material.
