Improving Methods for Assessing Reflectance Due to Whitecaps and Foam from Ocean Color Imagery
Dierssen, H.M., Randolph, K.L., Garaba, S.P. (26-Feb-16). The standard ocean color atmospheric correction algorithms have a simplistic method for treating whitecaps and foam that relies upon wind speed. However, large variability exists in the relationship between wind speed and whitecap coverage, as well as the amount of reflectance associated with whitecap and foam features. Here, field measurements of the Lambertian Equivalent Reflectance (LER) of whitecaps and foam made from the visible into the short wave infrared (350-2500 nm) are presented.
