Paper Abstract

During the CZCS era chlorophyll retrieval algorithms were developed with a very limited number of oceanic spectral radiance and pigment pairs obtained at individual ship stations. Recent results suggest that copious airborne active-passive data can now be used to validate oceanic water-leaving radiances, incident downwelling irradiance, phytoplankton chlorophyll, and the chromophoric dissolved organic matter absorption coefficient. Furthermore, these data can be used to develop and validate 1) oceanic radiance models, 2) inherent optical property (IOP) models, and 3) inversion methods for retrieval of IOP's.
