Abstract

A simple semi-analytical model (SAB) was developed for computing a(560) and b(b)(550) from HJ-1A/CCD images. By comparison with field measurements, the SAB model produces 5.3-23.5% uncertainty for a(560) and b(b)(550) retrievals. The a(560) and b(b)(550) are also retrieved from satellite images. The match-up analysis results indicate that a(560) and b(b)(550) may be derived from the HJ-1A/CCD images with respective uncertainties of 29.84 and 21.35%. These findings imply that, provided that an atmospheric correction scheme for the green bands is available, the extensive database of HJ-1A/CCD imagery may be used for the quantitative monitoring of optical properties in coastal waters.
