Abstract

The Coastal Zone Color Scanner retrieved chlorophyll-like pigments for the Mediterranean Sea show zones of high concentrations such as the shallow kerkennah Shelf, off the southern Tunisian coast. This pointing to probable erroneous estimates, exaggerated by the effect of the bottom signal is discussed in the general framework of the applicability of water colour techniques to coastal areas, as a source of environmental data suitable for inclusion in a multi-purpose Geographic Information System. The state of knowledge of the Kerkennah Shelf test site, organized into a regional data base, is presented.
