The IOCCG bibliography is updated periodically when new references are submitted by readers. Another useful ocean colour bibliography is the searchable Historic Ocean Colour Archive assembled by Marcel Wernand, with articles and books written between the 17th and early 20th century.

If you would like to submit a peer-reviewed publication to be included in the IOCCG Bibliography, please send the details to the IOCCG Project Scientist, Venetia Stuart, using the following format: Lastname1, Initials1., Lastname2, Initials2., etc. (DATE). Full title of publication, Journal Abbreviation, Volume, Page numbers, DOI (if available). Please check to see if the reference you want to submit is not already in the database (search by first author). It is not necessary to send the PDF file as an attachment. Note that only peer-reviewed articles will be accepted.

If you would like to view recently-published papers, just enter the current year in “Search by Keyword”.  You can also search using the author’s last name. For papers dealing with Remote Sensing of Marine Litter and Debris use the keyword “RSMLD”.
