This dataset was developed to compare the performance of various atmospheric correction algorithms. Data are provided for open ocean (Case-1) waters and for non- or weakly-absorbing aerosols (generally present in the open ocean). Examples from coastal Case-2 waters (sediment-dominated and yellow-substance dominated waters) and from strongly-absorbing aerosols are also provided. Please refer to IOCCG Report 10 for details and cite this report as follows if you use the dataset:
