Abstract
Nimbus-7 Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) data were used to compute spatial distribution of surface phytoplankton pigments in coastal and offshore waters near Iceland in April 1979. The standard CZCS processing algorithms were applied and a limited evaluation of their accuracy was conducted. This evaluation utilized in situ measurements from a cruise in the area and the clear water radiance concept. Initial results appear to confirm that the CZCS processing algorithms used at these moderately high latitudes exhibit accuracy similar to the validation studies conducted in the mid Atlantic bight.
