Abstract
An aircraft version of the Polder instrument flew over the Straits of Dover to observe coastal waters. Atmospheric corrections are a critical issue for ocean color. The measurements reported here clearly indicated that the usual atmospheric inversion schemes are not applicable. The encountered aerosol models did not correspond to the usual standard models. BRDF POLDER measurements indicated that a local and monodispersed aerosol mode was predominant. Ground-based measurements of the sky radiances and of the degrees of polarization confirmed the POLDER observations. POLDER polarized radiance analysis is expected to improve the aerosol model knowledge in order to correctly retrieve the water leaving radiance.
