The characteristics of the Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) are described. The factors affecting the apparent radiance signature at the satellite are presented along with some representative examples of measured spectral radinces, irradiances and transmittances in the ocean and in the atmosphere. Finally an example is presented of the spectral radiance components measured and computed for an experiment conducted in southern California coastal waters for the purpose of obtaining surface validation data at the time of a satellite overpass.
