Remote sensing of ocean colour: Towards algorithms for retrieval of pigment composition

Abstract:

Ocean colour varies as an inverse function of the absorption coefficient. In Case 1 waters, phytoplankton are known to be the principal agents responsible for variations in the total absorption coefficient. The concentration and composition of pigments present have a strong influence on phytoplankton absorption spectra. Empirical (regression) algorithms exist to recover the wavelength-specific absorption coefficient of phytoplankton from the concentration of the main pigment, chlorophyll-a. H...
