Abstract We propose a normalized difference chlorophyll index (NDCI) to predict chlorophyll-a (chl- a ) concentration from remote sensing data in estuarine and coastal turbid productive (case 2) waters. NDCI calibration and validation results derived from simulated and MEdium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) datasets show its potential application to widely varying water types and geographic regions. A quadratic function ( R 2  = 0.95, p a range of 1–60 mg m − 3 . Similarly a twofold… Expand

It was found that the variability of the chlorophyll-a fluorescence quantum yield and of the chlorine specific absorption coefficient can reduce considerably the accuracy of remote predictions of [Chla], so the effects were minimized by tuning the spectral regions used in the algorithm. Expand
