Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes the current activities of atmospheric and marine data acquisition in the Adriatic Sea and their analysis, carried out at the CNR - ISDGM (Venice, Italy) on behalf of the 'Coastal region long-term measurements for color remote sensing development and validation' (COLORS) project. The main objective of COLORS is to establish an archive of long-term atmospheric and marine measurements in atmosphere and water, carried out on three sites representative of European coastal waters. The subsequent analysis and interpretation of the acquired data has the purpose of detecting time variability of atmospheric and oceanic parameters, in order to develop improved atmospheric correction schemes and better inversion methods to derive water constituents. This paper describes the activities of data processing actually being made; the former part deals with the analysis of in situ indirect and direct measurements. The latter describes the retrieval of water parameters to be used in radiative transfer models. The results currently achieved are summarized and commented.
