Abstract

In coastal area the interpretation of spectral signals from the water surface layer, as received by satellite borne ocean colour scanner, becomes difficult when higher amounts of suspended matter and dissolved organic matter (Gelbstoff) are present and not correlated with phytoplankton pigments. The concentration of chlorophyll can be measured by laser remote sensing (LIDAR) and passive remote sensing of the chlorophyll fluorescence. Results are presented of simultaneous measurements made with an airborne LIDAR system and an airborne radiometer performed over the Northern Adriatic sea in August 1984 (ADRIA 84 Experiment). These results obtained confirm the potential use of airborne chlorophyll fluorescence sensors for identification of chlorophyll concentration in the Northern Adriatic Sea.
