Abstract
The sensitivity of ocean color products to variations in vicarious calibration gains at Top of Atmosphere (TOA) shows varying impacts in different water types for Suomi- NPP VIIRS. Blue water vicarious gains from MOBY in situ data, which is used for global open waters, and green water gains derived from complex coastal WaveCIS AERONET waters, have a different impact on spectral normalized water leaving radiances and the derived ocean color products (inherent optical properties, chlorophyll). We evaluated the influence of gains from open and coastal waters by establishing a set of ensemble-processed products. The TOA gains show a non-linear impact on derived ocean color products, since gains affect multiple ocean color processing algorithms such as atmospheric correction, NIR iterations, etc. We show how the variations within the ensemble TOA gain members spatially impact derived products from different water types (high CDOM, high backscattering, etc). The difference in color products derived from the Blue and Green water gain show a spatial distribution to characterize the product uncertainty in coastal and open ocean water types. The results of the ensemble gain members are evaluated with in situ matchups. Results suggest the sensitivity of the ocean color processing for open ocean verses coastal waters.
