Mechanistically-based models and algorithms for ocean optics are the overall goals for this project. Mechanistic models are robust, reliable, and portable. A standard optical model for the oceans is in development. This is being done by parameterizing and incorporating the optics of the coastal ocean system into Case 1 optical models. The parameterization is based on chlorophyll concentration and the concentration and size distribution of suspended mineral matter. This brings in mineral optical cross sections, virtually unknown in coastal ocean optics.
