The Ocean Colour CCI (OC_CCI) project focuses on the Ocean Colour ECV encompassing water-leaving radiance in the visible domain, derived chlorophyll and inherent optical properties and will utilise data archives of from ESA’s MERIS and NASA’s SeaWiFS, MODIS and possibly CZCS (after careful evaluation) sensors archives. It is also looking at the feasibility of using OCM-2 and VIIRS data as a "gap filler" before the launch of Sentinel-3.
The Ocean Colour team met for a successful progress meeting at the Centro de Oceanographia, Faculdade de Ciencias da Universidade de Lisboa on 21st and 22nd May. The first release of the Ocean Colour Products will be available via ftp in November 2013. Watch this space!
