Abstract : The report describes an investigation for measuring ocean color from the air, for correlating it with the physical and biological conditions of the sea, and for interpreting the data obtained. The feasibility of mapping and distinguishing between ocean areas containing low and moderate chlorophyll concentrations from flight altitudes up to 15,000 feet is shown experimentally by means of an airborne spectrophotometer.
