Pathfinders Ocean Acidification

Funded by ESA

This project aims to exploit Earth Observation data to quantify parameters required for OA research. It implements algorithms in four geographical regions :

  • global
  • Arctic seas
  • Bay of Bengal
  • Caribbean

The goal is to find which algorithms perform best in each region and validate the algorithms using in situ data and model output.

The result will be a set of regional algorithms and monthly datasets of Earth Observation derived pH and aragonite saturation state (Ωar).

The work is to develop and validate new and innovative products combining field data, satellite observation, and models.
