Case-2 Water Complications

For productive ocean waters at coastal regions, the ocean is usually not black at the NIR wavelengths at 765 and 865 nm. In these cases, the ocean contributions at the NIR are often mistakenly accounted as radiance scattering from atmosphere, thereby leading to over-correction of atmospheric radiance and underestimation of water-leaving radiance at the visible.

Examples of atmospheric correction for the non-black ocean at the NIR bands.

Atmospheric correction short wave infrared swir

Atmospheric Correction:Short Wave Infrared (SWIR)

  • In general, to effect the atmospheric correction operationally using the NIR bands at 765 and 865 nm, or using the spectral optimization with measurements from 412-865nm, Case-2 bio-optical model that has strongly regional & temporal dependences is needed.

  • At the short wave infrared (SWIR) wavelengths (>~1000 nm), ocean water is much strongly absorbing and ocean contributions are significant less. Thus, atmospheric correction may be carried out at the coastal regions without using the bio-optical model.

  • Examples using the MODIS 1240 and 1640 nm data to derive the ocean contributions at the NIR bands.

  • We use the SWIR (1640 nm) for the cloud masking. This is necessary for the coastal region waters.

Data processing using swir bands

Data Processing Using SWIR Bands

Lookup Tables Generation and Implementation:

  • Rayleigh lookup tables for the SWIR bands.

  • Aerosol optical property data (scattering phase function, single scattering albedo, extinction coefficients) for the SWIR bands (12 models same as for SeaWiFS/MODIS).

  • Aerosol lookup tables (12 aerosol models--same as for SeaWiFS/MODIS) for the SWIR bands.

    Data Processing:

  • Developed cloud masking using the 1640 nm band. This is necessary for the high-productive waters (e.g., coastal regions).

  • Implemented the sun glint mask.

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Both SeaWiFS/MODIS provide high quality ocean color products in the open oceans.

  • For the turbid waters in coastal regions, ocean is not black at the NIR bands. This leads to underestimation of the sensor-measured water-leaving radiances with current SeaWiFS/MODIS atmospheric correction algorithm.

  • Ocean is black for turbid waters at wavelengths >~1000 nm. Thus, the longer NIR bands can be used for atmospheric correction over the turbid waters.

  • In addition, we need longer NIR bands for cloud masking in the coastal regions.

  • We need longer NIR bands (> ~1000 nm) for GOES-R HES-CW for atmospheric correction for turbid waters in coastal regions.
