The C-OPS instrument successfully integrates a number of new technologies, each focused on different aspects of the practical problem of resolving the optical complexity of the near-shore water column. Although C-OPS represents a significant improvement over BioPRO and other legacy profilers, C-OPS was designed from inception specifically to operate in shallow coastal waters and from a wide variety of deployment platforms. In terms of the mechanics of operating the instrumentation and its…

Platform perturbations in above-water radiometry.

Two above-water data processing methods were used to create a diagnostic variable to quantify the presence of superstructure reflections and the primary conclusions are that the maximum perturbations occur very close to the tower and the platform perturbation is negligible, and a remote sensing 5% absolute accuracy objective can be satisfied.
