HAB cloud mask documentation

by davouris » Tue Jul 11, 2017 4:17 pm America/New_York


I am looking for documentation on the HAB cloud mask option that can be chosen when running l2gen on the GUI. I know it creates a cloud mask more suited to case 2 turbid & coastal waters, and is used to create a more accurate CI, and other HAB related products. I would like to properly cite the algorithm. Can you please point me to that information?

Thank you!

The algorithm was developed by Rick Stumpf of NOAA.  I do not know if it has been published (Rick was out of the office when I tried contacting him).  You may wish to contact him directly.
