IMBeR OC-PC Study Group Brief Overview on Ocean Color Sensors and Their Data Access Released

IMBeR Ocean Color-based Plant species identification and Carbon flux in the Indo-Pacific oceans (OC-PC) Study Group has released the manual Ocean Color Sensors and Their Data Access: A Brief Overview on July 2022. This manual can be downloaded from: or IMBeR OC-PC Study Group (no login needed).

The manual presents a summary of the ocean color sensors and their data access. It aims to provide a starting material for early career researchers (ECRs) and a wider audience who are not ocean color specialists. It will be updated as new sensors or new products become available.

IMBeR OC-PC Study Group cochaired by Prof. Young-Je Park and Prof. Fang Shen consists of experts from seven institutions in five countries. Its work program (2022-2032) contains:

1. Algorithms development to identify marine plant species and quantify carbon fluxes mediated by marine biosphere.

2. Ocean color synthesis for the East Indian and the West Pacific Ocean.

3. Capacity development for the ECR in the Indo-Pacific regions.
