Results of measurements by a novel snapshot hyperspectral polarimetric imager are presented using several data sets acquired from ocean platforms. Based on the unique availability of the pixel-to-pixel total, sky and water leaving radiances at multiple wavelengths, variations of these parameters for wind-roughened surface are assessed and possible errors in measurements of these parameters are estimated. Measurements made by the imager are compared with coincident ones from the green-band SALSA Stokes vector imaging camera, a push-broom hyperspectral polarimetric imager operated by Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and with simulations using a vector radiative transfer code, all demonstrating excellent agreement.
