West Coast Time Series Coastal Zone Color Scanner Pigment Concentration from the NIMBUS-7
Entry ID: BICNM7_BIMNM7_BITNM7

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) on Nimbus-7 was designed for the
quantitative remote sensing of the bio-optical properties of marine waters
by measuring the visible spectral signatures of the sea. The CZCS has six
spectral channels and five visible channels sensing solar backscattered
radiance and one infrared channel sensing emitted thermal radiance. The CZCS
measured radiances are used ... View entire text
