Abstract
It is well known that the ocean has enormous important for human life. The Ocean Color Imager is going to be one of the most important optical remote sensors on the ocean satellites, with missions to survey the distribution of suspended sediment, phytoplankton, and chlorophyll. The latter two items will be used to evaluate the primary productivity of ocean. China is a country with a long coastline and large territorial ocean remote sensing is very important. Changchun Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (CIOFM) is studying a prototype Ocean Color Imager to determine its feasibility and applications. It is expected that the visible near infrared region (0.4 - 1.06 micrometers ) Ocean Color Imager will have a spectral resolution of 10 to 20 nm, a spatial resolution of about 1 km and a global coverage period of two to three days from an orbit 700 to 900 km in height.
