Short summary
Copernicus operational services include ocean colour applications from medium-resolution polar-orbiting satellite sensors. The goal is to satisfy EU reporting on the quality of marine, coastal and inland waters, as well as to support climate, fisheries, environmental monitoring, and sediment transport applications. Ocean colour data from polar platforms, however, suffer from fractional coverage. This effort is in developing water turbidity services from Meteosat geostationary instruments.
