Abstract

We use remote-sensing reflectance from particulate Rrs to determine the volume absorption coefficient a of turbid water in the 400 < λ < 700-nm spectral region. The calculated and measured values of a(λ) show good agreement for 0.5 < a < 10 (m-1). To determine Rrs from a particulate, we needed to make corrections for remote-sensing reflectance owing to surface roughness Srs. We determined the average spectral distribution of Srs from the difference in total remote-sensing reflectance measured with and without polarization. The spectral shape of Srs showed an excellent fit to theoretical formulas for glare based on Rayleigh and aerosol scattering from the atmosphere.
