Aircraft Remote Sensing of Surface Chlorophyll in Chesapeake Bay
Entry ID: NOAA_CBO_ODAS_SURFACE_CHL

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: These data are maps of remotely sensed chlorophyll observations
starting in 1990. The data were obtained using the Ocean Data
Acquisition System (ODAS), an ocean color instrument developed by
NASA. ODAS consists of 3 radiometers in the blue-green region of the
visible spectrum that measure water-leaving radiance at 460, 490 and
520 nm. ... View entire text
