Paper Abstract

An iterative algorithm is presented for the determination of the aerosol optical thickness and the water-leaving radiance simultaneously from SeaWiFS measurements which is based on the wavelength relationships among the water-leaving radiance. The pixel which conforms to the wavelength relationships among the water-leaving radiance can be distinguished during the iterative process. The algorithm was used for the retrieval of the aerosol optical thickness and the water-leaving radiance in the Amoy from the SeaWiFS data. The aerosol optical thickness calculated at wavelength of O.55μm is very close to the values from the Sun-photometer measurements.
