Paper Abstract

A comparison of statistical characteristics of large arrays of the experimental and model spectra of the brightness coefficients (BC) for upwelling radiation from water was made. A practically total identity of the characteristics is shown. A conditions of applications of the regression model well-known in oceanology and limnology are defined. Concentrations of the individual optically active components (OAC) can be determined with the adequate accuracy in particular cases only. A comparative analysis of two representations of data obtained under the remote sensing of water objects was carried out: the OAC and the optical state of water ecosystem (OSWE) representations. The behavior of model spectra in the space of optical states (SOS) is analyzed. The layout geometry of SOS was studied and the interpretation of some region of the space in the frame of the conventional hydrochemical and hydrobiological terms was performed. It was shown that the information content of the brightness coefficients for water objects is determined by integral status of ecosystem.
