Paper Abstract

The paper presents the main results of a feasibility study (ESA Contract n° 5234/82 with AEROSPATIALE and Marconi Space Systems) of an 8-channel multispectral push-broom instrument, operating in the earth-reflected solar spectrum, for oceans applications. The objective for this so-called "Advanced OCM" (Ocean Colour Monitoring) is the mapping of sea-surface chlorophyll conteit with an accuracy of 20 %, which calls for exceptional radio-metric accuracy of NEΔ<5.10-4 at sea level and very good relative and absolute calibrations.
