The Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) on Nimbus-7, launched in Octoberis the only sensor in orbit that is specifically designed to study living marine resources. The initial imagery confirms that CZCS data can be processed to a level that reveals subtle variations in the concentration of phytoplankton pigments.

This development has potential applications for the study of large-scale Cited by: The Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) was a pioneering instrument supplying surface imagery in a number of narrow visible bands, which could then be separated into the individual color components.

The CZCS was launched in on the NASA satellite NIMBUS-7 with an expected two-year lifetime, but continued to provide useful image data for 8. Coastal Zone Color Scanner. The Coastal Zone Color Scanner Experiment (CZCS) onboard the Nimbus-7 spacecraft was designed to map chlorophyll concentration in water, sediment distribution, gelbstoffe concentrations as a salinity indicator, and temperature of coastal waters and ocean currents.

Abstract. Problems related to the quantitative evaluation of nature and quantity of suspended matter in the oceans and their coastal regions from digital imagery taken by the Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) on Nimbus-7 are by: The “Coastal Zone Color Scanner”, CZCS on NIMBUS 7 Launched October Illustration and Table taken from: Development of the Coastal Zone Color Scanner for Nimbus 7.

Vol. 1: mission objectives and instrument description. Final report F78Rev A, May NASA-CRVol Ball Aerospace Systems Div., Boulder. 76pp. The Nimbus-7 Coastal Zone Color Scanner has a unique capability for imaging simultaneously the optical (ocean color) and surface temperature (thermal infrared) signatures of ocean fronts.

Examples of such color and temperature visualizations of some ocean fronts delineate virtually identical by:   Exact Rayleigh scattering calculations for use with the Nimbus-7 Coastal Zone Color Scanner. Gordon HR, Brown JW, Evans RH.

For improved analysis of Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) imagery, the radiance reflected from a planeparallel atmosphere and flat sea surface in the absence of aerosols (Rayleigh radiance) has been computed with an exact Cited by:   The Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) on Nimbus-7, launched in Octoberis the only sensor in orbit that is specifically designed to study living marine resources.

For instance, the Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean (HICO) is the first space-borne imaging spectrometer designed to study the coastal ocean.

HICO will sample selected coastal regions with a 90 m spatial resolution, full spectral coverage (– nm, sampled at nm) and a very high signal-to-noise ratio to resolve the complexity Cited by: Variability of the Columbia River plume observed in visible and infrared satellite imagery. for use with the Nimbus-7 Coastal Zone Color Scanner.

An analysis of the errors due to multiple scattering which are expected to be encountered in application of the current Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS) atmospheric correction algorithm is presented in detail. This was prompted by the observations of others that significant errors would be encountered if the present algorithm were applied to a hypothetical instrument possessing higher.

A radar imaging system was the main sensor on Seasat, launched in June, In the s, a variety of specialized sensors - Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS), Heat Capacity Mapping Mission (HCMM), and Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) among others - orbited primarily as research or feasibility programs.

The Nimbus-7 satellite, launched incarried the first sensor, the Coastal Zone Colour Scanner (CZCS). The CZCS sensor ceased operation in The Nimbus satellite was placed in a sun-synchronous, near-polar orbit at an altitude of km. In the color coding, blues correspond to the lowest levels of phytoplankton and reds to the highest.

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are severe ecological disasters threatening aquatic systems throughout the World, which necessitate scientific efforts in detecting and monitoring them.

Compared with traditional in situ point observations, satellite remote sensing is considered as a promising technique for studying HABs due to its advantages of large-scale, real-time, and long-term by: Ocean color remote sensing has been a successful area of technological development since the Coastal Zone Color Scanner (CZCS), a proof-of-concept sensor launched in onboard Nimbus 7.
