Abstract

The goal for Ocean Color sensors is to determine the constituents of the ocean water, e.g. plankton or sediments. This can be achieved by analyzing water-leaving radiances in the visible and NIR spectrum.

For thirty years, the international ocean research community has made a vast array of discoveries using sustained, global, space-based data that allow estimation of ocean biological and biogeochemical properties.

The use of ocean color remote sensing to measure the transport of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) by the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico is investigated.

Because of its size, circumpolar circulation, and a large pool of unused surface-layer nutrients, the Southern Ocean is differentially important to understanding the global marine carbon cycle.

Ocean color, or the spectral distribution of visible light upwelling from beneath the ocean surface, carries information on the composition and concentration of biological constituents within the water column.
