University of Maine Ocean Optics Class
FSG staff members participate in a NASA'sponsored summer course conducted at the University of Maine Ira C. Darling Marine Center titled Calibration and Validation for Ocean Color Remote Sensing.
This 4-week course consists of a combination of graduate-level lectures, field research with state-of-the-art instrumentation, group projects, and intensive analysis and presentation of data. It provided a hands-on experience for 20 U.S. and international students based on collaboration with core University of Maine faculty, guest faculty and speakers, and NASA'scientists. Deliverables to NASA have included high quality bio-optical data collected during class-sponsored field campaigns for submission to the SeaWiFS Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS) for use in OBPG satellite validation and algorithm development activities ...
... and comprehensive multi-instrument calibration/deployment/data analysis documents that accompanied these data submissions. The OBPG uses the latter as a template for all current data submissions to SeaBASS from NASA Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry funded scientists.
