The Atmospheric Effect Correction of the Ocean Color Imager of ROCSAT-1-Simulations and Using SeaWiFS Data as the Example

Abstract

The total radiance observed by satellite-borne ocean color sensors results from several contributions: the atmospheric molecular and aerosol scattering, the sea surface reflectance and the water leaving radiance. In order to apply these ocean color sensor data to access the ocean parameters, atmospheric correction should be undertaken in advance to extract the water leaving radiance that is relevant to the ocean parameters. The aim of this study is to establish one atmospheric correction process for the Ocean Color Imager (OCI) of ROCSAT-1, and some pre-launch simulation results are demonstrated.
