REVAMP is a project aiming at Regional
Validation of MERIS Chlorophyll products in North Sea Coastal Waters.
Chlorophyll is a pigment in phytoplankton, which is the
main source of food for life in the sea. Chlorophyll is also an important
water quality parameter, which underpins the common environmental policies
of the European Union and the Oslo-Paris Convention (OSPAR).
Satellite remote sensing of chlorophyll concentrations supplements
conventional water sampling programs. REVAMP uses data from the MEdium
Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS), which is one of the sensors on
ESA's Environmental satellite (Envisat). REVAMP processes MERIS data to
high-quality maps of chlorophyll concentrations in the North Sea. These
will be presented in an atlas that will be made available through this
Future services may include
the distribution of other value added products, such as a eutrophication
