Abstract

COLORS is the first attempt to create a long-term European network program for the development and validation of water colour remote sensing in coastal zones and shelf seas. Over a three year period COLORS covers the following activities:

- Extensive long-term measurements over three selected sites, located in different coastal/shelf areas (Adriatic Sea, English Channel, North Sea) representative of the main European water types, all equipped with identical instrument packages and special attention will be paid to calibration and intercalibration of sensor to ensure high quality measurements and comparability of the data from the different sites;
- Analysis, interpretation and processing of the data acquired, aimed at deriving bio-geophysical marine and atmospheric parameters used to develop robust marine and atmospheric algorithms accounting for site and season specific influences;
- Application of the ensuing algorithms and techniques on available satellite data (the resulting data products will be validated in order to assess the full potential of operational optical remote sensing in European coastal waters).
