Abstract
Lidar and optical data combined with the ground-truth measurements from a great number of stations spread across Greenland and the Norwegian Seas yield a large database partly presented and analysed herein. The intensities of the emission bands of the lidar-induced water spectrum, the diffuse attenuation coefficients, and the surface concentration of chlorophyll a are used to describe the spatial distribution of the fluorescent molecules in the upper water layer. The characteristics of vertical profiles of the chlorophyll a content are given as well.
A comparison between lidar estimations of chlorophyll a content and extracted chlorophyll a from water sampling, and hydro-physical parameters of water is presented.
