C2RCC conc_chl & iop a_pig

Hello everyone,
since chl-a concentration in C2RCC is derived from absorption pigment (a_pig) equation, it is being said that conc_chl and iop_apig have a positive correlation.
However, when I tried it with my data, I get negative correlation. What are the factors that I should consider to review? could the presence of an uncorrected sunglint on the image from C2RCC processor possibly affect the reading of the results?

This is the function to derive the chlorophyll concentration:
chl = 21.0 ∗ (a_pig443)^1.04
