Abstract

The results of the comparison of the values of the standard satellite product “Chlorophyll a Concentration” recovered from MODIS-Aqua satellite with the results of field measurements in the coastal waters of the Black Sea near Sevastopol from 2009 to 2019 as a part of regular bio-optical monitoring have been presented. Differences between seasons in the nature of the error of the standard satellite product “Chlorophyll a Concentration” using the standard NASA algorithm were established: in spring, a significant underestimation of the values of the standard satellite product “Chlorophyll a Concentration” (up to 2.1 times) at high chlorophyll a concentrations was noted according to the results of the full-scale measurements, and in summer a significant overestimation of the values (up to 3.8 times) at low concentrations was noted. Throughout the year, depending on the season, the error in determining the standard satellite product “Chlorophyll a Concentration” on average varied from ±24 % to ±51 %. To increase the accuracy of determining the chlorophyll a concentration with remote sensing, it is necessary to use a regional approach.
