Short summary
A method which determines the radiance reflectance at the surface as well as the water-leaving and reflected radiances solely from the measurements of upward nadir radiance and downward irradiance in air is presented. A comparison between this method and in situ measurements shows that the average relative deviations between their results are less than or equal to 15% for the reflected radiance, at the studied wavelengths.
