Paper Abstract

In the Institute for Space Sensor Technology a new generation of remote sensing imaging spectrometers was developed, measuring the reflected from the ocean atmosphere system radiance in the visible to near-infrared spectral range. This Modular Optical Scanner was successfully launched on 21 March 1996 with an Indian satellite to a polar sunsynchronous orbit, and on 23 April 1996 with the Russian Priroda Module on the MIR station. For the purpose of interpretation of these measurements over oceans and coastal zones has been developed a special algorithm based on Principal Component Analysis, using a special inversion technique for a given ocean-atmosphere physical mode. An important question in the description of such models are the inherent optical properties of the water. In the paper will be given a description of the derivation of the interpretation algorithm for different water constituents, with an inherent atmospheric correction. It will be shown how specific optical properties are influencing the interpretation results. This work was performed in cooperation with the Baltic Sea Research Institute Warnemuende.
