With the advent of increasingly-sophisticated satellite ocean-colour sensors in the late 1990’s, with better radiometric performances and in increased number of spectral channels, an IOCCG working group was formed to determine whether it is possible to satisfy the requirements for an operational ocean-colour mission at low cost based on simple sensors? In particular, can useful information be provided if the sensor is operated with a reduced number of spectral channels? If such a minimal set of bands could be identified, a corollary would be to recommend it for inclusion in all sensors, regardless of their other capabilities and of the larger number of channels they may possess. A commonality in the spectral acquisition provides important practical, as well as scientific, advantages. Indeed, it would allow: easy intercomparison between sensors, and even radiometric intercalibration in well-defined conditions; a full compatibility of operational algorithms for atmospheric correction and.....
