Abstract
At present there are half a score of satellite ocean color sensors being in operation or prepared for launch; they offer strong possibilities of providing data on spatial and temporal variability of various characteristics of atmosphere and ocean, primarily of the optical ones. As of now, data from the satellite scanner SeaWiFS (Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor) are in most common use; they have been available since September 1997. The possibilities and problems of retrieval of optical characteristics of atmospheric aerosol, cloudiness, and sea water from SeaWiFS data are considered. The algorithms developed in the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology Russian Academy of Sciences are presented as well as some results of their validation by data of field measurements. The examples of spatial distributions and seasonal changeability of aerosol optical thickness and seawater optical characteristics derived from SeaWiFS data are given.
