ECOHAB: Culver_M- NOAA CSC/Coastal Remote Sensing West Florida Coast Cruise, 1999-04 (NODC Accession 0000535)

Abstract: The Coastal Services Center's (CSC) Coastal Remote Sensing (CRS) program is involved with programs to validate satellite algorithms for ocean properties. CRS is involved with the effort to validate ocean color algorithms to derive chlorophyll concentrations from the NASA ocean color satellite, Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS). This program is funded in part through a NASA Sensor Intercomparison and Merger for Biological and Interdisciplinary Oceanic Studies ( SIMBIOS) contract awarded to CRS and the Ocean Color Program at the NOAA NESDIS Office of Research and Applications. In addition, the cruise was conducted in support of the ECOHAB Project (Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms) and eventual forecasting efforts. The cruise also supports ground truthing of aircraft overflights for the NOAA/CSC Estuarine Habitat Program (EHAB). Purpose: The objective of this cruise was to obtain bio-optical data from diverse water types on the West Florida Shelf, extending from coastal to open ocean regimes as well as in areas of algal blooms.

Supplemental Information
ECOHAB (ECology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms) is
a scientific program designed to increase understanding of
the fundamental processes underlying the impacts and
population dynamics of HABs. This program addresses the many
factors at organismal, population, community, and ecosystem
levels that determine how HAB species respond to, and
potentially alter their environment, the manner in which HAB
species affect food-web and community interactions. The
program is based on the results of a workshop co-sponsored
by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
and National Science Foundation (NSF) and currently receives
funding from several federal partners including NOAA, NSF,
the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA).
