Since the early 1980s, with the onset of missions for global mapping of marine biomass, accurate in-situ radiometric data has become a pressing need to support satellite ocean color applications. This work presents a brief introduction to in-situ marine optical radiometry through an overview of absolute calibration, measurement methods, uncertainties and application to the validation of satellite ocean color data.
