Sentinel-3 OLCI Alternative Atmospheric Correction ATBD

This ATBD describes a procedure to derive the bi-directional water leaving radiance reflectances (RL_w) from top of atmosphere (TOA) radiance reflectance spectra RL_toa (L1b data) of the Ocean Land Colour Imager (OLCI) on Sentinel 3. The procedure is an alternative method to the standard atmospheric correction procedure for OLCI. Its main purpose is to improve the atmospheric correction over turbid and highly absorbing case 2 water and for areas of an image which are contaminated by sun glint. However, it can be applied also to case 1 water.
