Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. The prediction of inherent optical properties IOPs and water-leaving radiance Lw in coastal waters over a 5 to 10 day time horizon will require a numerical simulation that accurately forecasts the physical, ecological, and optical environment. Critical to the ecological and optical forecast is the ability to directly compare the water-leaving radiance field to those being collected by aircraft and satellite platforms. Our goal is to develop the ecological and optical models and computer codes to initialize, validate, and predict the IOPs and Lw over an operational time horizon.
