MULTICOLOR-2: The multicoloured North Sea: chlorophyll a, pheophytin a and suspended solids concentations (2000)
Contact: Beheerseenheid Mathematisch Model Noordzee en Schelde-estuarium (IRScNB/KBIN-BMM), more

Description
Improve the bio-optical algorithms used in the ocean colour model existing at MUMM by incorporating the latest theoretical advances and by performing a calibration of the model specific to the Belgian coastal zone. This calibration is based on sets of inherent optical properties and corresponding water constituents measured in a series of seaborne campaigns. This project is an exension of the work already carried out in the project MULTICOLOR 1. more
