An investigation was carried out for measuring ocean color from the air, for correlating it was the physical and biological conditions of the sea, and for interpreting the data obtained. The feasibility of distinguishing between ocean areas containing low and moderate chlorophyll concentrations from flight altitudes up to 10,000 feet is shown experimentally by means of an airborne spectrophotometer. For inter-comparison of data obtained under a wide variety of conditions, a computer system to maintain and manipulate files of airborne oceanographic data stored on magnetic tape is generated and described.
