Optical properties as proxies

Variable interacts with light

Volts or Counts

IOP or AOP

Proxy

Variable –> real thing

( = phytoplankton, etc.)

Optical Properties as Proxies


There s two ways to skin a cat

“There’s two ways to skin a cat”

Variable IOP or AOP

How to measure the variable (combination of proxies?)

POC

Phytoplankton

Dead organics

Suspended minerals

Biogenic minerals (coccoliths)

DOC

What information does the IOP/AOP contain (multiple variables)?

a

b

c

bb

VSF

K

Rrs


Concept of optical proxies

Variable: phytoplankton biomass – pigment(long history: HPPU, CPR, trichromatic equ.,fluorescence, HPLC, remote sensing

absorption coefficientdirect IOP or inversion from AOPs:but –phytoplankton is only part of total aphyt, all pigments aps photosynthetically competent pigments fluorescencequasi-IOP or AOP (solar fluorescence)caution because of variable fdetermine pigment, then what? Convert to carbon? Use for physiology or PP model?


Concept of optical proxies

Variable: phytoplankton biomass – carbonIOPs:c– phytoplankton is only part b– phytoplankton is only part bb– phytoplankton is only part AOPs:bb– phytoplankton is only part Can bb/b or bb/c ratio help to better resolve if c, b or bb is dominated by organics ?


Concept of optical proxies

Variable: phytoplankton functional groupingeg: SIZE or TAXONIOP:spectrum beam c – mean particle sizeVSF – particle size distributionAOP:inversion spectrum bb – mean particle size-dependence of a – pigment packaging –> pico vs. microplankton; key groups


Concept of optical proxies

Ancillary data to guide interpretation/model/etc.* temperature – algal growth rate, carbon flux, nutrient effects, etc.* salinity – terrestrial CDOM, stratification * winds – mixing, storms* depth – MLD, euphotic depth, water column depth* geographic regime and distance from shore* what else?
