Ocean Color Remote Sensing

Project Description
The Ocean Color Remote Sensing (OCRS) Project involves the validation
of satellite algorithms for ocean properties. OCRS is involved with
the effort to validate ocean color algorithms to derive chlorophyll
concentrations from the NASA ocean color satellite, Sea-viewing Wide
Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS). This program is funded in part through
a NASA Sensor Intercomparison and Merger for Biological and
Interdisciplinary Oceanic Studies (SIMBIOS) contract awarded to CRS
and the Ocean Color Program at the NOAA NESDIS Office of Research and
