Abstract:

A provisional biooptical climate of the Northeast Pacific Ocean and Gulf of Alaska in summer combines a regional map of mean remotely sensed K490 near-surface irradiance attenuation coefficient at 490 nm with a set of empirical models predicting vertical profiles of irradiance attenuation and in situ chlorophyll-a fluorescence as functions of 1K490 m. The K490 seasonal mean was calculated as a composite average of CZCS measurements in this region during June, July, and August in 1979 through 1985.
