The paper "A novel method for estimation of aerosol radiance and its extrapolation in the atmospheric correction of satellite data over optically complex oceanic waters" presents a flowchart having some missing parameters used in the algorithm to obtain the desired water-leaving radiance product. However, all the images and results presented in the paper were processed after the inclusion of these missing terms in the method. We apologize to the concerned editors, reviewers and the readers of the paper. Here we intend to include the missing terms in the algorithm. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
