OCEANcode: the complete set of algorithms and models for the level_2 processing of European CZCS historical data
A complete set of algorithms and models for the level-2 processing of the European CZCS historical data was integrated in the OCEANcode software package. The OCEANcode allows the calibration of the sensor-recorded signal taking into account the instrument sensitivity loss; the correlation of the calibrated signal for atmospheric contamination and derive subsurface reflections; and then the estimation of the concentration of water constituents. The atmospheric correction is formed on the basis of a reflectance-model-based algorithm. The Rayleigh correction is applied consistently for all water pixels, using a multiple scattering approach, and introducing atmospheric pressure and Ozone concentration data in the computation.
