For interpretating remotely sensed diffuse reflectance of stratified case 1 waters, Gordon and Clark [Appl. Opt. 19, 3428 (1980)] suggested that the reflectance of a stratified ocean is identical to that of a hypothetical homogeneous ocean with a phytoplankton pigment concentration (?C?) that is a depthweighted average of the actual depth-varying concentration [C(z)]. However, this hypothesis has not been tested experimentally or theoretically. In this paper, the hypothesis is examined with… CONTINUE READING
