Abstract:

The overall goals for this project are to develop robust, reliable, and portable mechanistically based models and algorithms for ocean optics. I am expanding on the parameterizations of Case 1 optical models for Case 2 coastal waters. The base parameterization involves 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.
