Paper Abstract

The investigation of the bio-optical features distribution in the upper ocean layer is one of the objectives of the satellite remote sensing. But, very often it is necessary to compare satellite data with simultaneous shipborne measurements to interpret some processes more definitely. The statistical processing of the chlorophyll (alpha) concentrations simultaneously measured by SeaWiFS and by the shipborne fluorometer installed on the training sailboad 'Nadezhda' in the sea of Tasmania is presented in this paper. It is shown that in both cases we have detected characteristic scales in the chlorophyll (alpha) space distribution caused by the internal Rossby scales.
