Reflectance data from a high spectral resolution spectroradiometer were obtained onboard a ship in Plymouth coastal waters. These data were analysed to detect algal photosynthetic accessory pigments for comparison with absorption spectra as measured in the laboratory by a spectrophotometer. The overall spectral characteristics of Plymouth waters allowed identification as to population composition. Derivative analysis of the spectra was used to resolve characteristic peaks of specific pigments. It was determined that chlorophyll pigments, a specific carotenoid and sea water absorption bands were detectable in the reflectance data. Absorption bands of photosynthetic and accessory pigments were assessed through chromatographic pigment analysis.
