I am trying to follow along with the calculations presented in Hout et al 2009 (nflh and quantum yield of fluorescence).
I am not entirely sure which data product represents the zenith angle of observation needed to calculate the upwelling radiance due to fluorescence.
Is this the csol_z values in the scan line attributes? or is sena/senaz?
A far as I can tell from previously doing this I have looked at the long names, so I "know" what csol_z is (not the other two), but I guess for my question, I am not sure if that is in fact the value I need.
I am relying on the following quote from Huot et al 2009
"...In the remainder of this paper the dependence on ?em= 678 nm is implicit. This description is valid for nadir viewing; for non-nadir viewing conditions, af is replaced by af/cos(?), where ? is the zenith angle of observation in water(as defined in Morel and Gentili 1996)..."
The csol_z data set in the scan_line_attributes group is a solar zenith angle for the center of the scan - has nothing to do with "zenith angle of observation".
We don't output the sensor zenith angle in our standard products. To get that you would have to process from L1 and include "senz" in the list of output products.
...and then play with Fresnel to transfer the angle to in water.
BTW, I think you mean Huot et al., 2005... :grin:
