Abstract: The Copernicus Program has been established through the Regulation EU No377/2014 with the objective to ensure long-term and sustained provision of accurate and reliable data on environment and security through dedicated services. Among these, the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service and the marine component of the Climate Change Service, both rely on satellite ocean colour observations delivering data on water quality and climate relevant quantities such as chlorophyll-a concentration used as a proxy for phytoplankton biomass. This report summarizes results from activities carried out at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) to assess Copernicus Sentinel-3A and Sentinel-3B Ocean Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) radiometric data products in view of ensuring their confident use in environmental and climate applications.
