Upwelling radiance just about the water surface

Post by fsteinmetz »

I think this term includes both the water-leaving radiance and the surface reflected radiance. If this is the case, since the ocean color community usually uses the ratio of the water-leaving radiance and downwelling irradiance just above the water surface, is it possible to get the water-leaving radiance only?

Answer: Not for the moment
The separation of water leaving radiance from the upwelling radiance above the surface `I_up (0+)` is not possible for the moment. It may appear in a future release.
