Ocean colour analysis is a proven tool for determining the health of
ocean using oceanic biological activity through optical means. Phytoplankton
pigment, chlorophyll, are indicators of equilibrium of CO2
concentration between atmosphere and ocean. The oceanic colour changes due to chlorophyll
a provides the level of primary productivity whereas the colour change due to
CDOM can be attributed to the level of pollution and higher particulate matter.
The ability of optical sensors to map the spatial and temporal patterns of
ocean colour over regional and global scales has provided important insights
into the fundamental bio-optical properties and bio-physical processes
occurring in the aquatic media. Chlorophyll, SST and PAR can be operationally
scaled up to estimate primary production and estimate the fish stocks. This
training focuses on the basics of marine optics, ocean colour remote sensing,
and its applications such as mapping primary productivity, phytoplankton
classes and algal blooms.
The course is aimed to provide an introduction to operational oceanography, discovery and use of operational ocean data products and services, hands on for visualizing the in situ, remote sensing and model derived data products.
