Abstract
In the standard CZCS atmospheric correction method the aerosol radiance is derived assuming that the water-leaving radiance at 670 nm is zero. This assumption, justified for water whose reflectance is determined solely by absorption (Case 1 waters), causes the errors for water whose reflectance is significantly influenced by scattering (Case 2 waters)--for example the Baltic Sea. The values of aerosol radiance are too high and the water-leaving radiance too low in comparison to the experimental ones. The relative error for the aerosol radiances (normalized to their values for 670 nm) decrease with wavelength: from 60% at 443 nm to 13% at 550 nm.
