Paper Abstract

We present a combined analysis of apparent optical properties and inherent optical properties of the California Current based on multi-instrument bio-optical measurements during the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigation cruises. Detailed radiative transfer modeling is employed and radiance and irradiances for the model are derived and compared to measured values. Bio-optical parameterizations for the California Current are developed and compare to existing parameterizations for Case 1 waters. Discrepancies between absorption parameterizations are discussed.
