Two remote-sensing optical algorithms for the retrieval of the water quality components (WQCs) in the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine System (APES) were developed and validated for chlorophyll a (Chl). Both algorithms were semi-empirical because they incorporated some elements of optical processes in the atmosphere, water, and air/water interface. One(More)
A comparative analysis is presented of simple approaches to radiative transfer in plane-parallel layers, such as the self-consistent Haltrin approach, the Chandrasekhar-Klier exact solution for isotropic scatters, an extended version of two-flux radiative Kubelka-Munk theory, the neutron-diffuse Gate-Brinkworth theory, and different versions of the(More)
Development and validation of the surface suspended sediment concentration (SSC) models derived from the surface remote-sensing reflectance spectra [R<sub>rs</sub>(&#x03BB;)] are important in satellite monitoring of estuarine and coastal waters. Seven empirical and seven semianalytical spectral reflectance models for evaluation of the surface SSC were(More)
The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of(More)
We present an analysis of a number of different approximations for the diffuse reflectance (spherical and plane albedo) of a semi-infinite, unbounded, plane-parallel, and optically homogeneous layer. The maximally wide optical conditions (from full absorption to full scattering and from fully forward to fully backward scattering) at collimated, diffuse, and(More)
Field observations carried out in the Neuse RiverPamlico Sound Estuarine System (NRE-PS), North Carolina, USA were used to develop optical algorithms for assessing inherent optical properties, IOPs (absorption and backscattering) associated with water quality components (WQC). WQCs including chlorophyll a (Chl), volatile (organic) suspended solids (VSS),(More)
A new analytical approach for retrieval of the vertically weighted chlorophyll a concentration (<linear span>Chl<linear span>(rs)) detected by remote sensors is presented. Model calculations were carried out for the turbid waters of Lake Kinneret, Israel, and showed that <linear span>Chl<linear span>(rs) may be replaced by the average chlorophyll a(More)
Distribution, migration and transformation of chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in coastal waters are closely related to marine biogeochemical cycle. Ocean color remote sensing retrieval of CDOM absorption coefficient (ag(λ)) can be used as an indicator to trace the distribution and variation characteristics of the Changjiang diluted water, and(More)
We present an analysis of a number of different approximations for the plane transmittance Tp and diffuse attenuation coefficient Kd of a semi-infinite, unbounded, plane-parallel, and optically homogeneous layer. The maximally wide optical conditions (from the full absorption to the full scattering and from the fully forward to the fully backward(More)
