Paper Abstract

Coastal areas of the China Seas are typical the so called case II waters or turbid waters, the retrieval and validation of the ocean color satellites' data in the China Seas have become one of the most difficult field in the ocean color remote sensing community. In this study, the semi-analytical (SA) algorithm for optically shallow water developed by Lee et al. is tuned for the China Seas using numerical simulation technique of the radiative transfer equation based on the field investigation data (China Joint Global Ocean Flux Study, JGOFS and some unpublished data) and literature of the China Seas. It is found that the tuned SA algorithm for the China Seas is better than that of Gordon et al. and Lee et al., the applicability of the tuned SA algorithm is improved in the China Sea. The percentage error between the retrieved chlorophyll concentration by the tuned SA algorithm for the China Seas and the in-situ data is about 28% using the field campaign data in the East China Sea in 1998.
