The Geostationary Ocean Color Imager (GOCI) sensor, with high temporal and spatial resolution (eight images per day at an interval of 1 hour, 500 m), is the world’s first geostationary ocean color satellite sensor. GOCI provides good data for ocean color remote sensing in the Western Pacific, among the most turbid waters in the world. However, GOCI has no shortwave infrared (SWIR) bands making atmospheric correction (AC) challenging in highly turbid coastal regions. In this paper, we have developed a new AC algorithm for GOCI in turbid coastal waters by using quasi-synchronous Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) data. This new algorithm estimates and removes the aerosol scattering reflectance according to the contributing aerosol models and the aerosol optical thickness estimated by VIIRS’s near-infrared (NIR) and SWIR bands. Comparisons with other AC algorithms showed that the new algorithm provides a simple, effective, AC approach for GOCI to obtain reasonable results in highly turbid coastal waters. View Full-Text
