    We propose an atmospheric approach to validate the atmospheric corrections over water. The sensor is MERIS and the ground-based instrument is the CIMEL radiometer in AERONET. The idea is to evaluate all the atmospheric functions required in the atmospheric corrections. The inputs are provided by AERONET after inversion of the optical measurements [1], the radiative transfer code used for this study is the SOS code [2]. The MERMAID database in AAOT is used to illustrate this new concept for validation.
