Short summary
This work fully describes all the technical steps that are currently put in place in the context of the European Copernicus Marine Environment and Monitoring Service to make ocean colour data freely available to the general public. These data are useful for mapping phytoplankton dynamics on a daily and basin scale. The multi-sensor output compares well to data collected during dedicated field cruises, proving that the operational product can be successfully used for environmental monitoring.
