Abstract
    The image set created on 5 August 2003 by CHRIS/PROBA is analyzed to assess the feasibility of producing suspended particulate matter (SPM) and chlorophyll (CHL) maps. To produce these maps images are first destriped, atmospherically corrected and georeferenced. Once the data processing is finished, the results are compared with seaborne measurements and data products retrieved from other ocean colour sensors. The data processing with its associated problems, the comparison with seaborne and other data and the creation of SPM and CHL maps are described in this paper. Conclusions and recommendations are made in the context of considering CHRIS/PROBA as a model for the future generation of small ocean colour missions.
