Paper Abstract

The SISCAL project aims to distribute near-real-time through internet ocean color and sea surface temperature data. To ensure the compatibility of the final products between different sensors, an in house algorithm was implemented, based on the "best" state of the art. We will deal here with the atmospheric correction module for the ocean color retrieval (and the upstream classification module). SeaWiFS data in coastal areas were processed using the SISCAL algorithm. This validation exercise of the algorithm brought some improvements to the algorithm: a better selection of the suitable pixels for aerosol remote sensing, the introduction of a background correction for clear days. We also raised the problem of the aerosol climatology through the regular existence of small aerosols which are never taking into account in the standard aerosol models used for atmospheric correction.
