Paper Abstract

Narrow band polarization measurements were taken from a bridge in San Diego Harbor using the Advanced Coherent Technologies Multi-mission Adaptable Narrowband Imaging Spectrometer (MANTIS) multichannel imaging system. MANTIS was capable of simultaneously collecting four channels of imagery through a narrowband green (532 nm) filter together with linear polarizers oriented at 0, 45, 90, and 135 degrees. This configuration enabled the collection of the first three Stokes Vector elements. The data is being gathered to explore methods of calculating the sea surface Mueller Matrix. Models, methods, and measurements are presented. Of specific interest is the deviation of the modeled data from the measured data and its causes. The data and a model are used to estimate the contribution of upwelled polarized light.
