Abstract:

This study was undertaken to determine a course of action for NORDA to provide a balanced RD program in optical oceanography to support MCG requirements. Aspects considered in this analysis include an initially broad view of general MCG requirements for ocean optics, a review of existing programs, sponsors and funding in ocean optics, and an assessment of available NORDA resources in ocean optics. Current technical literature in ocean optics and optical instrumentation was also reviewed to establish the current state of knowledge and technology. An integrated coastal ocean optics program covering basic research, exploratory development, and advanced development, using all relevant available NORDA resources is recommended. This work was funded by Dr. J. Andrews, NORDA Technical Director, under Program Element 65861N.
