Paper Abstract

This study proposes a method for estimating the spectral characteristics of aerosol scattering using the Korean Geostationary Ocean Color Imager (GOCI). GOCI three-hourly observations around noon are used to separate ocean and aerosol reflectance with the assumption that the aerosol amount changes but that the spectral shape of the aerosol scattering and ocean reflectance do not change within the three hours. No assumption of the spectral shape of the ocean color and aerosol scattering is required using this method, however it cannot use sometimes because of availability of the assumption. The results were validated using in situ optical measurements from the East China Sea in March 2013.
