Abstract:

The emphasis in our ONR funded research is placed on characterizing the factors affecting the optical properties i.e. attenuation and fluorescence of coastal seawater. Particular emphasis is being placed on developing a better understanding of the differences and similarities between colored dissolved organic matter CDOM of marine and terrestrial origin, and the impact these properties have on the chemical and optical characteristics of coastal environments where their effects are most pronounced. The equipment assembled under this grant is being used both in the laboratory and in shipboard experiments to provide detailed characterization of the optical properties of coastal seawater. Such information once acquired can be applied to remote sensing modeling applications and the design of optical sensing detectors for probing the ocean.
