Since the pioneering paintings of Clarke et a1. (1970) it's been recognized that chlorophyll a (or. extra ordinarily. pigments) contained in phytoplankton in near-surface waters produced systematic adaptations within the colour of the sea that can be saw from airplane. As a right away results of this paintings. NASA constructed the Coastal area colour Scanner (CZCS). which used to be introduced on Nimbus-G (now Nimbus-7) in October 1978. (A brief description of the CZCS is supplied in Appendix I. ) almost immediately earlier than release. on the IUCRM Colloquium on Passive Radiometry of the sea (June 1978). a operating staff on water colour measurements was once shaped to evaluate water colour distant sensing at the moment. A document (Morel and Gordon. 1980) used to be ready which summarized the state of the art of the algorithms for atmospheric correction. and phytoplankton pigment and seston retrieval. and which incorporated thoughts in regards to the layout of subsequent iteration sensors. The water colour consultation of the COSPAR/SCOR/IUCRM Symposium 'Oceanography from area' held in Venice (May 1980. i. e •• within the post-launch interval) supplied the chance for a reassessment of the state of the art after having received a few event within the research of the preliminary CZCS imagery. Such an evaluation is the aim of this evaluation paper. for you to commence with an overview of the fundamental physics of water colour distant sensing and the basics of atmospheric corrections. the current kingdom of the constituent retrieval and atmospheric correction algorithms will then be seriously assessed.
