Estimation of sea surface solar radiation at 400-700 nm using satellite ocean color data, and its validation by ship data

Estimation of sea surface solar radiation at 400-700 nm using satellite ocean color data, and its validation by ship data

Optics Express 24(6): A604

We present results of validating the algorithms used to estimate sea surface solar radiation at 400-700 nm, photosynthetically available radiation (PAR), from satellite ocean color data and an appropriate validation procedure when data are collected using a moving ship. The validation was performed using field measurements of PAR during a transit cruise from the Baltic to the White Sea during the summer of 2014. The PAR was measured at 10-minute intervals using a deck radiometer throughout the daylight hours. The satellite estimate of daily surface PAR with an acceptable error, on the scale of 1 day-102 km, is shown.
