Video: The Science of Ocean Colour, a film by Roland Doerffer (46 min.)

Cyanobacteria in the Baltic SeaOcean Colour Remote Sensing has become an important method in oceanography, coastal water research and monitoring of water quality from space or aircrafts. In order to apply this method it is necessary to investigate the optical properties of water and its constituents and the transport of light in water and atmosphere. This field of science is called optical oceanography. Beside remote sensing the information is needed also to compute the input of solar energy into the ocean and to estimate the primary production by phytoplankton and phytobenthos.

Since scattering of sun light in the atmosphere has a strong impact on optical remote sensing of water, also the optical processes in the atmosphere have to be investigated and taken into account for the algorithms, which are used to process satellite data.

The film shows the basic optical processes in the sea, how optical measurements are done in coastal waters and how bio-optical properties of coastal waters are derived from satellite data. It ends with a chapter on optical measurements at the coast of the Baltic Sea, carried out by the University of Stockholm.

The film consists of 5 parts, which can be viewed or downloaded here:
