Abstract:

The long-term scientific goal of my research is to better understand the distribution of phytoplankton in the worlds oceans through remote sensing their influence on the optical properties of the water. The effect of the bottom reflectance in shallow waters is an obvious extension of this goal, both through its relationship to remote sensing diffuse reflectance is a remote sensing problem and through its influence on radiative transfer.
