International Network for Sensor Inter-comparison and Uncertainty assessment for Ocean Color Radiometry (INSITU-OCR)
Working toward consistency and accuracy in the development of Essential Climate Variables from multiple missions
The INSITU-OCR initiative was developed within the Ocean Colour Radiometry – Virtual Constellation (OCR-VC) of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS). The INSITU-OCR initiative aims at integrating and rationalizing inter-agency efforts on satellite sensor inter-comparisons and uncertainty assessment for remote sensing products with particular emphasis on requirements addressing the generation of ocean colour Essential Climate Variables as proposed by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS). An INSITU-OCR White Paper was produced by an IOCCG working group chaired by Giuseppe Zibordi (JRC, Italy) and Sean Bailey (NASA GSFC, USA).
