One of the problems arising at remote sensing of the ocean is determination of characteristic structures in distribution of bio-optical characteristics of the upper ocean layer. The passive methods of determination of a sea surface color allow us in some cases to solve this problem. However, because of the influence of many factors, the signal-to-noise ratio in these measurements does not allow reliable recognition of such structures. In this paper, fields of chlorophyll A concentration obtained simultaneously from the SeaWiFS satellite and with a shipborne laser fluorimeter in the Tasmanian Sea are statistically processed in parallel. It is shown that characteristic scales in the chlorophyll distribution are observed in both cases, and these scales are connected with the Rossby inner scales.
