Abstract
In order to increase the accuracy of measuring the chlorophyll concentration from shipboard or satellite and to find out maximum potentials of remote sensing, the method of mathematical design of experiment is recommended. It is shown that the optimum design includes not more than two wide composite spectral channels. A recurrent algorithm for selection of the optimal spectral channel is suggested. In order to use this algorithm, one must know statistical characteristics of the system `water-leaving radiance spectrum-chlorophyll concentration in surface waters.' They were simulated on the basis of well-known low-parametric models for water optical properties because of the lack of experimental data on these characteristics. Optimal spectral channels have been computed and an example of chlorophyll concentration retrieval is shown. They may be considered as preliminary results demonstrating possibilities of the experimental design method.
