Paper Abstract

The atmospheric correction in ocean color remote sensing ins the most significant technique to retrieve the water leaving radiances, which are less than 10 percent of the satellite radiances, and its main errors are occurred by the estimation errors of the aerosol property and quantity which are highly variable in both space and time. In this study, our main purpose is to develop the advanced atmospheric correction method by using multi-viewing satellite data. POLDER onboard ADEOS can acquire multi-direction reflectance up to 14 viewing angles. In order to evaluate the validity of the multi-angle algorithm, we tired to test the algorithm with POLDER data. Results of comparisons with OCTS algorithm show that this algorithm with 3 or 4 angles POLDER data is available to estimate the aerosol properties because it is not affected form the errors depend on the band ratio.
