Validation of Ocean Color

This paper, published in the Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology, explores the use of autonomous profiling floats for in situ radiometry measurements. By drifting freely in the ocean and moving vertically by changing their buoyancy, profiling floats allow coverage of a wide range of locations, ocean optical properties, and atmospheric conditions. One of the authors is Marlon Lewis, OFI's Scientific Director.

Researchers used a set of six autonomous profiling floats deployed in the Mediterranean Sea, Pacific Ocean, and Atlantic Ocean to estimate radiometric quantities.
