Shore based ocean sky and sea radiance measurements from the Navy Background Measurements and Analysis Program (BMAP) and the Infrared Analysis Modeling and Measurements Program (IRAMNP) are used to evaluate an ocean infrared radiance model. The SEABEAN model uses LOWTRAN VII for sky dome radiance calculations and atmospheric transmission, and the Cox-Munk wave slope statistics coupled with the Saunders wave shadowing model. The model results were found to be in modest agreement with the experimental measurements. Results were improved through plausible adjustments to uncertain meteorological test parameters.
