A simple correction method to remove the spectral bandpass effects of the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) on the derived normalized water-leaving radiances and ocean-near-surface chlorophyll concentration is developed and implemented in the SeaWiFS data-processing system. SeaWiFS has not only in-band response structures but also significant sensor out-of-band contributions. The effects of the SeaWiFS out-of-band contribution at the green bands is particularly significant for the… CONTINUE READING
