Abstract: A bio-optical instrument package was used to vertically profile a K. brevis bloom on the West Florida Shelf in October 2001. The inherent optical properties of the population were used to quantify and discuss the impacts on remote sensing of algal blooms. Vertically dependent changes in attenuation coefficients on the order of 4-5 fold were measured as the population migrated to the surface and back to the bottom over the diel period. The changes in lOPs affected the spectral distribution of the remote sensing reflectance as the population migrated to the surface. This shift reflected the vertical migration and the cell cycle biology.
