In 2010 ESA has launched the CoastColour project to fully exploit the potential of the MERIS instrument for remote sensing of the coastal zone. CoastColour is developing, demonstrating, validating and intercomparing different Case 2 algorithms over a global range of coastal water types, identifying best practices, and promoting discussion of the results in an open, public form. In May 2012 CoastColour will complete a large dataset of water quality products from 27 coastal areas distributed globally. As part of the project, alternative Case2 processing algorithms were tested, and Round Robin algorithm intercomparison was carried out. The lessons learnt from this analysis is synthesised in Consensus Case 2 Regional Algorithm Protocols which shall serve as guidelines for future algorithm development in optically complex waters.
