Paper Abstract

An application of characteristic vector analysis to ocean color spectra for the detection of pollutants in water is described. The technique can be useful for detecting and distinguishing among a variety of substances in the water. The analysis also illustrates the variability of the water color spectra with both concentration and depth distribution. Both concentration and depth information may be extractable from passive multispectral data under certain circumstances.
