Remote sensing and surface POC concentration in the South Atlantic

  title={Remote sensing and surface POC concentration in the South Atlantic},
  author={Alexey V. Mishonov and Wilford D. Gardner and Mary Jo Richardson},
Several SeaWiFS products have been compared with shipboard data to assess the possibility of using remote sensing to estimate particulate organic carbon (POC) concentration in surface waters. Transmissometer data were collected during six South Atlantic Ventilation Experiment (SAVE) hydrographic expeditions conducted between November 1987 and March 1989 from R/V Knorr, and Melville. A total of 361 beam attenuation profiles were made with a SeaTech transmissometer interfaced with a CTD/rosette… CONTINUE READING
