REVAMP will develop an improved product from MERIS, namely an atlas containing maps of validated chlorophyll (CHL) concentrations for the North Sea. REVAMP will follow a regional approach where parts of the North Sea will be described by same algorithm with different parameters. CHL algorithms are still far from well established for turbid coastal waters (case 2). Therefore the MERIS standard neural network approach will be considered together with alternative innovative methods such as multi-spectral matrix inversion methods.
