Abstract

The Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS) experience suggests that in most situations the aerosol models presently in use for atmospheric correction of ocean color imagery are sufficient for this task. It has been shown [Appl. Opt. 41, 412 (2002)] that the top-of-atmosphere reflectances computed for more realistic aerosol models differ from those computed for presently used models but have not shown that they will yield a better atmospheric correction, e.g., through direct application to ocean color imagery. Thus they provide no evidence that the presently used aerosol models are inadequate, or that their use is a pitfall in atmospheric correction.
