Underwater ocean truth data were collected in conjunction with the NIMBUS VII Coastal Zone Color Scanner CZCS experiment. The data were provided to permit a correlation of remote radiometric measurements with the biological constituency and optical properties of the seawater investigated. Preliminary examination of expendable bathythermography data indicates that a correlation between irradiance data and water temperature may exist where the thermocline structure is significant.
