    Ocean Color

    Areas of research include data acquisition, field calibration, and stability monitoring of optical instruments; intercomparison of above- and in-water optical methods, including suborbital platforms; reducing the uncertainties in high performance liquid chromatography; conception, design, evaluation, and commercialization of optical instrumentation; and vicarious calibration, algorithm validation, and baseline research for ocean color remote sensors.

    Current Projects

    Instrument Development Projects

    Instrument development: microradiometers SBIR I–III (2004–2011); b) stability monitoring SBIR I–II (2006-–2009); c) hybridspectral instruments BAA (2008–2012); d) PROSIT (2009–2014); e) C-HyR SBIR I–II (2011–2014); f) OCULLAR IRAD (2013–2014); and g) successful commercialization (TRL 9) of BioSORS, SuBOPS, PURLS, C-OPS, BioSHADE, OSPREy, OXR, C-PrOPS, C-SAW, T-MAST, C-CAPS, C-AIR, and C-HOIST.
