Regional validation of meris chlorophyll products in north sea coastal waters

Objective

REVAMP aims at supporting the monitoring of the eutrophication state of the North Sea by measuring and validating a key bio-geo-physical parameter (Chlorophyll or CHL concentration) using MERIS observations. Because of regional variations in North Sea water composition, REVAMP will develop and validate regional CHL products . The end product will be a North Sea atlas for the period spring 2002 to spring 2003, containing CHL maps, accuracy products and Added Value Products (e .g. monthly mean values). A selection will be made of state-of-the-art bio-optical models and analytical algorithms. Selected algorithms will be adapted for regional use. REVAMP will do high quality in-situ sampling for the purposes of parameterisation, calibration and testing of algorithms and for validation of the end products .
