Paper Abstract

Apply a newly developed ocean-color inversion algorithm to measurements made in the west Florida Shelf and off the California coast, we derived the particle backscattering coefficient and the total absorption coefficient. From the derived total absorption coefficient, we calculated the absorption coefficients of the phytoplankton pigments and that of the gelbstoff (Colored Dissolved Organic Matter). From the derived pigment absorption coefficients, we further calculated the chlorophyll-a concentrations. These derived values were compared with those measured from water samples. It is found that the derived values are very consistent with those measured ones, suggesting that the inversio nmethods work very well for these coastal waters, and can be applied to satellite data for wide observations.
