Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to have an advanced algorithm for beam attenuation coefficient c from ocean color remote sensing, an algorithm that can be implemented to process satellite imagery for Navy applications. The primary objectives of this research are 1 to identify the most significant proxy or proxies that can be used to represent the change of backscattering bb to scattering b ratio i.e., bbb and 2 to develop an algorithm that can be used with data from satellite ocean color remote sensing to provide needed global coverages of beam attenuation coefficient.
