Abstract

We tested closure between in situ radiometric and absorption coefficient measurements by using a nearly backscattering-independent remote-sensing reflectance model that employs the remote-sensing reflectance at three wavelengths. We show that only a small error is introduced into the closure model when the proper functional relationships of f/ Q and the backscattering is taken to be a constant when using the sea-viewing wide field-of-view sensor wavelengths 443, 490, and 555 nm. A method of inverting the model to obtain the absorption coefficient by use of simple linear spectral relationships of the absorption coefficient is provided. The results of the model show that the independent measurements of reflectance and absorption obtain closure with a high degree of accuracy.
