New Technology and Teamwork to Tackle Ocean Color Radiometry
Description: Satellite ocean color radiometry (OCR) is a powerful tool providing recurrent measurements of global phytoplankton biomass on synoptic scales. OCR is increasingly used in applications related to societal benefits (e.g., harmful algal blooms) and is a key tool for research into the global carbon cycle and other biogeochemical cycles. To improve collaboration and advance OCR research, ocean color research scientists and representatives from various space agencies met in San Francisco, Calif., in June 2015 for the second International Ocean Colour Science (IOCS) meeting.
