Short summary
The paper presents a correlation that can potentially improve the signal obtained from ocean color remote sensing. Results come from a modeling applied to the atmosphere–ocean system in different regions of the southern Baltic, two seasons and two wind speeds, each for nine visible spectral bands. The results show that the variability of the maximum of DoP depends more on seasonal than regional changes and can be explained to a large degree by the seawater absorption-to-attenuation ratio.
