Abstract: A 10-year time series of ocean colour products has been assembled for the European Seas from the SeaWiFS and MODIS full resolution satellite imagery. The JRC ocean colour archive is first briefly described. Then the study focuses on the analysis of the spatial and temporal variability of standard products such as the chlorophyll a pigment concentration and the diffuse attenuation coefficient. The European seas are partitioned into a set of specific regions for which average time series are derived and analysed in terms of seasonal and inter-annual variability. Finally, a statistical analysis yields a decomposition of the series into seasonal, irregular and linear trend components, thus providing a classification of the European waters on the basis of their temporal variations.
