Paper Abstract

Same day ocean color products from the S-NPP and MODIS provide for a new capability to monitor changes in the bio-optical processes occurring in coastal waters. The combined use of multiple looks per day from several sensors can be used to follow the water mass changes of bio-optical properties. Observing the dynamic changes in coastal waters in response to tides, re-suspension and river plume dispersion, requires sequential ocean products per day to resolve bio-optical processes. We examine how these changes in bio-optical properties can be monitored using the NPP and MODIS ocean color products. Additionally, when linked to ocean circulation, we examine the changes resulting from current advection compared to bio-optical processes. The inter-comparison of NPP and MODIS ocean products are in agreement so that diurnal changes surface bio-optical processes can be characterized.
