Our long-term goals are to develop a better understanding of the relationships between upper ocean optical properties and particulate and dissolved seawater constituents, and to determine how these relationships are influenced by physical processes. Specific long term objectives include both predicting and modeling optical variability relevant for biological processes, such as phytoplankton photosynthesis, and retrieval of information about the biomass and activity of plankton from optical measurements.
