The editorial team are delighted to present this Special Issue of Sensors focused on Remote Sensing of Ocean Color: Theory and Applications. We believe that this is a timely opportunity to showcase current developments across a broad range of topics in ocean color remote sensing (OCRS). The advent of ocean color sensors introduced a new understanding of the dynamics inherent to phytoplankton biomass and productivity in both marine and freshwater systems. Remote sensing provides the only reasonable way to synoptically map aquatic systems, and through the development of Climate Data Records provides a long-term perspective on
Through its influence on the structure of pelagic ecosystems, phytoplankton size distribution (pico-, nano-, and micro-plankton) is believed to play a key role in "the biological pump." In this paper, an algorithm is proposed to estimate phytoplankton size fractions (PSF) for micro-, nano-, and pico-plankton (f m, f n, and f >p, respectively) from the spectral features of remote Nitrogen and iron largely determine phytoplankton production in the ocean, yet there are few direct incubation studies on nutrient limitation of phytoplankton in the western tropical North Pacific

Pigment-based size classification is modified for fucoxanthin in nanophytoplankton. Spectrally-resolved ocean-color data can retrieve phytoplankton size structure. Seasonal succession of size classes is examined using remotely-sensed :// phytoplankton and their variations is central to the under-standing of the optical variability of oceanic waters, and therefore to the refinement of ‘‘analytical’’ bio-optical models, in particular for ocean color interpretation.

The control experiment uses a fixed attenuation depth for shortwave radiation, while the attenuation depth in the experiment with biology is derived from phytoplankton concentrations simulated with a marine biogeochemical model coupled online to the ocean :// Abstract.
Spectral measurements of downwelling irradiance, E d (λ), above the surface, and of upwelling irradiance just below the surface, E u (λ), allow computation of spectral values of the diffuse reflectance R(λ) = E u (λ)/E d (λ); this yields full information about the true color and brightness of the ocean.
Typical results are presented and interpreted for waters very different in The reviews of Matthews () and Odermatt et al. () discussed the various ocean color models used for the retrieval of water quality parameters in open and coastal ocean waters, from empirical to more complex approaches.
More recently, Brody et al. () compared different methods to determine phytoplankton bloom initiation. The present article will complement those recent reviews by Phytoplankton absorption (Fig. 2) demonstrates the most spectral variations of any of the components due to the individual pigment absorption spectra but in general exhibits peaks in the blue and red regions of the spectrum due to the ubiquitous presence of chlorophyll :// Changes in oceanic primary production, linked to changes in the network of global biogeochemical cycles, have profoundly influenced the geochemistry of Earth for over 3 billion years.

Improvements are necessary in the following areas: present systems provide a spatial resolution on the order of 1 km at nadir, which would not satisfy most of Past years have seen the development of different approaches to detect phytoplankton groups from space.
One of these methods, the PHYSAT one, is empirically based on reflectance anomalies. Despite observations in good agreement with in situ measurements, the underlying theoretical explanation of the method is still missing and needed by the ocean color community as it prevents improvements of ?uri=oe.
By combining these numerical data with different size distribution functions (assumed to be representative of phytoplankton populations and/or total seston populations), results are obtained concerning the efficiency factors for scattering and absorption, the backscattering efficiency and finally the spectral variations of these quantities in Oceanic phytoplankton chlorophyll is known to produce a very significant influence on the optical properties of the ocean.
The chlorophyll-driven optical properties are in fact so strong as to allow global satellite mapping of the pigment concentration in the upper ocean Similarly, chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) is the primary constituent that is absorbing light in the ocean and often exceeds even the light absorbed by phytoplankton.
4 As a result, CDOM dominates ocean color, plays a critical role in photobiology and photochemistry, photoproduction of CO 2, 5 as well as controlling the absorption
