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.
