Abstract: Based on the principles of marine optical radiation transmission, this paper sets up a forward model of water optical characteristics by adopting the Monte Carlo method. The model can simulate the expressional optical characteristics with the input of the immanent optical characteristics of waters. In this paper, the model is applied for China's coastal seawaters. Simulation is conducted using the model as well as the measured data collected in the spring of 2003 in the Yellow Sea and East China Sea, and the patterns and values of the remote sensing reflectance spectra derived from simulation are compared with the practically measured data. The analysis results show that the spectrum simulation results of remote sensing reflectance of the model are consistent with the measured data, which is in line with the typical spectra of the class II waters off China's coasts, with the deviation values controlled within 20%. The findings in this paper provide a solid foundation for further research on the optical characteristics of China's near-shore waters.
