A methodology for quantitative ocean colour analysis has been developed for airborne sensor data. Its main characteristic is the capability to perform the correction of atmospheric and sea-surface effects as a function of altitude, iteratively computing both the water radiance in a near infrared reference channel and the aerosol effects between sea surface and sensor. Results obtained from various study cases, including data sensed with different atmospheric turbidity and over waters with different chlorophyll and sediment concentration, are given and discussed.
