Abstract: In the frame of "ocean colour" remote sensing, the European Seas can be considered optically complex waters as an important fraction of their surface is distributed over the coastal shelf or in closed basins. In such wa-ters, the origins of the particulate and dissolved materials playing a significant optical role are manifolds. They result in a high variability of the marine inherent optical properties, from the strongly absorbing Baltic waters to the scattering North Sea waters and the transparent Eastern Mediterranean Sea, furthermore complicating the inversion of the remotely sensed water leaving signal and the derivation of marine products.
