Abstract: A methodology to quantify the adjacency effects in remotely sensed data from coastal waters is presented. Specifically, the dependence of the adjacency effects due to changes in the land-ocean reflectance is decoupled from the dependencies of satellite data on measurement geometry and atmosphere. A set of realistic test cases for typical SeaWiFS observation conditions is proposed to simulate the adjacency effects along a transect in the North Adriatic Sea embracing the Aqua Alta Oceanographic Tower, (AAOT, 45.31N, 12.51E), used for satellite ocean color calibration and validation activities. A 3D backward MonteCarlo code and the Finite Elements Method (FEM) plane-parallel highly accurate radiative transfer code are used.
