Ocean color measurements from the Chesapeake Bay Observing System (CBOS) in support of sea WiFS data
Principal Investigator:Lawrence W. Harding, Jr.
Start/End Year:1996 to 1998
Institution:Horn Point Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
Co-Principal investigator:William C. Boicourt, Horn Point Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
The objective of the proposed research is to use surface observations of ocean color on buoys to calibrate and validate satellite-derived products from the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS). Ocean color sensors will be deployed on buoys of the Chesapeake Bay Observing System (CBOS) in the mid - to lower Bay and coordinated with aircraft and satellite measurements.
