AERONET-OC “Acqua Alta Oceanographic Tower” (AAOT, also identified as Venise). The site established and maintained by the JRC since 2002 is located in the northern Adriatic Sea at ...
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
