Zhang, KX, Li, W, Eide, H, Stamnes, K (2007). A bio-optical model suitable for use in forward and inverse coupled atmosphere-ocean radiative transfer models. JOURNAL OF QUANTITATIVE SPECTROSCOPY & RADIATIVE TRANSFER, 103(2), 411-423.

Abstract
A simple, yet complete bio-optical model for the inherent optical properties (IOPs) of oceanic waters is developed. This bio-optical model is specifically designed for use in comprehensive, multiple scattering radiative transfer models for the coupled atmosphere-ocean system. Such models can be used to construct next-generation algorithms for simultaneous retrieval of aerosol and marine parameters. The computed remote sensing reflectance R-rs(lambda) is validated against field measurements of R-rs(lambda) compiled in the SeaBASS data base together with simultaneous chlorophyll concentrations (C) ranging from 0.03 to 100 mg m(-3). This connection between R-rs and C is used to construct a chlorophyll concentration retrieval algorithm that yields reliable results for a large range of chlorophyll concentrations. The overall performance of a MODIS/VIIRS chlorophyll concentration retrieval algorithm is found to be less satisfactory. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
