Abstract : The capability of the Naval Ocean Research & Development Activity Remote Sensing Branch in ocean optics is described. A summary of the facilities, programs, scientific contributions and basic research issues is outlined. The application of remote sensing in the study of ocean optical properties is described in addition to present image processing software and satellite receiving capability. Different optical field instruments which the Remote Sensing Branch has obtained are presented. Results of optical data are illustrated in relation to other oceanographic parameters. Navy programs which have supported the Remote Sensing Branch's developments in water optics are described. The Navy relevance of water optics to these programs is indicated. (Author)
