The newly-constituted Ocean Colour Portugal consortium (OCPortugal) aims at promoting the use of remote sensing (RS) products in the Atlantic off Portugal. In close collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA), OCPortugal currently links the following institutions: Centre of Oceanography (IO), Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon; CENTRIA and CITI from Faculty of Science and Technology , New University of Lisbon (FCTUNL); and Sagremarisco-Viveiros de Marisco Lda. Through a coordinated set of actions undertaken by these research groups, OCPortugal brings together expertise in different research areas such as marine biology, applied optics, satellite imagery, and parallel computing.
