Paper Abstract

A primary productivity model for the turbid water is proposed using the remote sensing data. In previous studies, we proposed a time and depth resolved primary productivity model for a global scale, but results indicated significant errors on the East China Sea. A euphotic zone estimated in this model was based on a chlorophyll α concentration in the surface, which made errors on the turbid water. A photosynthetically available radiation and chlorophyll α concentration along the water column are defined as a function of the diffused attenuation coefficient and chlorophyll α concentration in the surface.
