... In DERIVING OCEAN PROPERTIES FROM OCEAN addition, the CO2 dissolving in the ocean produces carbonic COLOR RADIANCE acid, which is causing the ocean to become more acidic. Moreover, the ocean has absorbed approximately 90 percent Deriving biological parameters from ocean color meaof the increased heat associated with climate change (Lyman surements is a multi-stage process.

... The water-leaving radiance -- the is generated from Level 1 radiance following atmospheric signal -- is at most 10 percent of the TOA radiance (simulations correction. Atmospheric correction for optically deep water3 by the HydroLight and Modtran radiative transfer models using requires sensor measurements at near and short wave infrared typical oceanic and atmospheric properties and 10-nm wavelength wavelengths, ancillary measurements such as sea-level atmoresolution)

... As a result, for the first time, a climate-quality5 data record can be compiled to demonstrate regarding the relationships between ocean color radiance and the types of particulate and dissolved substances found the strong link between interannual climate variability and in water, new and improved algorithms and ocean color the marine biosphere during the El Niño to La Niña transiproducts continue to emerge.

... Ocean color remote To sustain and build on these achievements, the cli sensing data are necessary to build accurate and useful mate research community requires access to uninterrupted models related to climate change, which will increase our climate-quality data records for the marine biosphere. Such understanding of variability of in situ organic and inorganic records are central to validating new, more sophisticated carbon constituents; continental shelf ecosystem dynamics climate models that incorporate biogeochemical processes, and variability of the mixed-layer thickness; and variability such as primary production, and validating and improving of particulates and aerosols in the ocean and atmosphere.

... The committee will build on the Advance Plan developed by NASA's Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry program and comment on future ocean color remote sensing support of oceanographic research goals that have evolved since the publication of that report. Also included in the review will be an evaluation of ongoing national and international planning efforts related to ocean color measurements from geostationary platforms.
