Abstract:

The overall goal of this work was to develop and evaluate a new method of inverting remotely sensed ocean color data to recover the big three water inherent optical properties IOPs, namely the phytoplankton absorption coefficient, the CDOMdetritus absorption coefficient, and the total constituent backscattering coefficient.
