Abstract

Absorption and fluorescence of CDOM are widely used to characterize its concentration and composition, both in situ and with remote sensing techniques. As fluorescence is an inelastic scattering process, it can potentially be observed in filling-in of Fraunhofer lines with the DOAS method in high spectrally resolved satellite data. Here, we perform a theoretical model study and preliminary DOAS retrieval on SCIAMACHY data in order to test the feasibility of such an approach. Our results show that retrieving CDOM fluorescence is difficult, due to its relatively weak signal in global oceans (in comparison to Raman scattering of clear water)and varying broad spectral features. Detailed studies of the synergistic use of narrow and broad fluorescence features, and an appropriate scheme to account for disturbance effects of Raman scattering, are needed for further investigating the retrieval of CDOM fluorescence.
