Paper Abstract

The PRISMA is a research project, sponsored by the Italian Ministry for University and Scientific Research, devoted to the study of the Adriatic Sea. Within this project, the general goal of the IROE has been the development of a measurement procedure for the detection of marine fronts which integrates the NOAA-AVHRR imagery and the fluorescence lidar data. The paper reports the activity performed during the different measurement campaigns and discusses the results obtained during the first winter campaign carried out in February 1997. A good agreement was found between the front position as detected on the AVHRR thermal images and the position detected by the fluorescence lidar on the base of the change in chlorophyll and DOM concentration as well as in the change of the water Raman signal.
