Abstract (EDOC: 7484)
SeaWiFS data (2001-2002) of Lake Baikal (Siberia, RU) has been investigated to support multi-disciplinary limnological investigation within the frame of the paleoclimate project CONTINENT. Using adapted SeaDAS processing for Lake Baikal, the OC2 chlorophyll algorithm performed adequately for Case 1 surface waters. On the other hand, for the case of high organic terrigenous input (Case 2 waters), there occurs a distinct switch in the spectral peak position and a chlorophyll overestimation. SPM is quantified by the regression of the SeaDAS attenuation coefficient, and field data. Applying these methods, the resulting chlorophyll and terrigenous input maps provide information as how to interrelate the findings from sediment trap and field data with the autochthonous and allochthonous material at the CONTINENT coring sites.
