Abstract:

The long-term scientific goal of my research is to better understand the distribution of phytoplankton in the worlds oceans through remote sensing their influence on the optical properties of the water. An associated goal is the understanding of the absorption and backscattering properties of marine particles in terms of the distributions of their size, shape, and composition.
