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 reference to Raisha Lovindeer using the following format: Lastname1, Initials1., Lastname2, Initials2., etc. (DATE). Full title of publication, Journal Abbreviation, Volume, Page numbers, DOI (if available). Please also check to see if the reference 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, enter the current year in “Search by Keyword”.  You can also search the database using keywords or the author’s last name. For papers dealing with Remote Sensing of Marine Litter and Debris, use the keyword “RSMLD”.  You can also view the Datasets Bibliography for remote sensing and marine litter and debris.
