Paper Abstract

The performance of a novel compact large-area radiometric light source (CLARLS) has recently been demonstrated by the SeaWiFS (sea-viewing wide field-of-view sensor) quality monitor built for the SeaWiFS calibration and validation program. The SeaWiFS quality monitor (SQM) was successfully used as a calibration source onboard two trans-Atlantic cruises. The success of the CLARLS relies mostly on the uniformity of optical radiance it provides for sensor calibration. A theory to model the uniformity must account for the light scattering inside its light chamber. Here, such a model is proposed and the results of the numerical simulation are discussed.
