Paper Abstract

An in-situ instrument designed to measure the spectral attenuation coefficient of sea-water and the ocean remote sensing reflectance from 400 to 750 nm is under development and is described. It employs a 256-channel, charge-coupled type of linear array measuring the spectral intensities diffracted by a grating. Examples of the types of data expected to be delivered by this instrument have been simulated using a breadboard laboratory instrument and an above-water, solid-state radiometer. Algorithms using data from these instruments have been developed and tested providing measures of chlorophyll a + phaeophytin a from less than .1 to 77.0 mg/m3 chlorophyll, gelbstoffe spectral absorption coefficients, and detrital spectral backscattering coefficients for waters of the west Florida shelf.
