Deriving inherent optical properties from water color: a multiband quasi-analytical algorithm for optically deep waters.
For open ocean and coastal waters, a multiband quasi-analytical algorithm is developed to retrieve absorption and backscattering coefficients, as well as absorption coefficients of phytoplanktonExpand

A model for the diffuse attenuation coefficient of downwelling irradiance
[1] The diffuse attenuation coefficient for downwelling irradiance (Kd) is an important parameter for ocean studies. For the vast ocean the only feasible means to get fine-scale measurements of Kd isExpand

Euphotic zone depth: Its derivation and implication to ocean-color remote sensing
[1] Euphotic zone depth, z1%, reflects the depth where photosynthetic available radiation (PAR) is 1% of its surface value. The value of z1% is a measure of water clarity, which is an importantExpand

Summary diagrams for coupled hydrodynamic-ecosystem model skill assessment
Abstract The increasing complexity of coupled hydrodynamic-ecosystem models may require skill assessment methods that both quantify various aspects of model performance and visually summarize theseExpand

Optical scattering and backscattering by organic and inorganic particulates in U.S. coastal waters.
We present the results of a study of optical scattering and backscattering of particulates for three coastal sites that represent a wide range of optical properties that are found in U.S. near-shoreExpand

Hydrogen peroxide in the western Mediterranean Sea: a tracer for vertical advection
Hydrogen peroxide, micronutrients, chlorophyll, primary production and light were measured at a series of stations in the western Mediterranean Sea. Hydrogen peroxide concentrations greater than 100Expand

The origin and characteristics of the Algerian Current
Satellite and ship data collected between May 1 and 22, 1986, show that the Algerian Current originates in the Almeria-Oran Front and remains within 30 km of the Algerian coast for over 300 km,Expand

Spectral dependence of the scattering coefficient in case 1 and case 2 waters.
An approximate linear relationship between the scattering coefficient and the wavelength of light in the visible is found in case 1 and case 2 waters. From this relationship, we estimate scatteringExpand
