    This document builds on MERIS protocols to give more detailed guide lines for the determination of apparent and inherent optical properties of Case 2 waters of the INTERREG 2-Seas area. The protocols document draws on the experience of NASA’s SeaWiFS project and the EU Colors project (Coastal region long-term measurements for colour remote sensing development and validation MAS3 – CT97 – 0087; funded by the EU Marine Science and Technology Programme MAST III Strategic Marine Research) and the EU FP5 project REVAMP (Regional validation of MERIS chlorophyll products in North Sea coastal waters EVG1-CT-2001-00049; Tilstone et al. 2003). The protocols should be used in parallel with Protocols for the Validation of MERIS water products (Doerffer 2002) which documents MERIS water products, validation strategies and sampling criteria.
