Following a recommendation from an IOCS-2019 breakout workshop, and after a series of discussions at IOCCG Committee meetings between 2019-2022, the IOCCG put forth an action to form a task force dealing with hyperspectral remote sensing of the ocean. The focus of the task force would be on creating a quantitative guide to hyperspectral radiometry as compared to multispectral, examining the science application and mission development of hyperspectral radiometry, and grounding theoretical analysis of hyperspectral data in reality of what is possible from space-based instruments and resources.
The chairs of the task force were suggested and invited by the IOCCG, and the task force was established in March 2023.
