Paper Abstract

The proposed approach is based on the theory developed for the marine environment. This approach is tuned to be valid in the whole range of optical properties including an unrealistic case of a totally scattering sea. Because the atmosphere below the ozone layer is totally scattering in the visible range of spectrum, the proposed approach may be applied to the atmosphere are presented. The proposed model allows to calculate spectral albedo of the ocean-atmosphere system as a function of three input parameters: the chlorophyll concentration, the aerosol atmospheric optical thickness at near IR, and the solar zenith angle.
