Abstract

The CZCS experiment (1978-1986) has provided a great wealth of information on various oceanographic topics, ranging from bio-geo-chemical parameters in surface waters to dynamical processes of the sea. The OCEAN project will perform a thorough reappraisal of all CZCS data covering marine regions of European concern. The objectives of the project include the pre-processing of all data available; the generation of a reliable, well documented, easily accessible archive; the processing of all suitable data, using 'ad hoc' algorithms purposely assembled for OCEAN, to the final geophysical parameters of interest; the preparation of time series, mosaics and statistical images, that will be provided to several application demonstration programmes to be carried out in Europe.
