Abstract:

The two long-term goals of this research are 1 to use remotely sensed ocean optical data for estimates of the regional and global scale significance of photochemistry involving colored dissolved organic matter CDOM and 2 to produce high quality quantitative data on photochemical fading of CDOM that will allow forward prediction of the effect of this process on inherent optical properties in the sea.
