Abstract

An optical dataset was collected on a mooring in the Santa Barbara Channel. Radiative transfer modeling and statistical analyses were employed to investigate sources of variability of in situ remote sensing reflectance [ r r s ( λ , 4   m ) ] and the fQ ratio. It was found that the variability of inherent optical properties and the slope of the particle size distribution (ξ) were strongly related to the variability of r r s ( λ , 4   m ) . The variability of fQ was strongly affected by particle type characteristics. A semianalytical radiative transfer model was applied and effects of variable particle characteristics on optical closure were evaluated. Closure was best achieved in waters composed of a mixture of biogenic and minerogenic particles.
