Aeronet OceanColor

Acronym: AERONET-OC

Description

The network AERONET - Ocean Color (AERONET-OC) provides the capability of measuring the radiance emerging from the sea (i.e., water-leaving radiance) with sun-photometers installed on offshore platforms like lighthouses, oceanographic and oil towers. AERONET-OC is instrumental to satellite ocean color validation activities through standardized measurements

Dataset: Normalized Water-Leaving Radiance corrected for the effects of the non-isotropic distribution of the in-water radiance field (i.e., f/Q Corrected) (Data Units: mW/(cm2 sr um))

Level 1.0 - unscreened data
