Open Access Publication in Remote Sensing on Analysis Ready Data
The new publication A Virtual Geostationary Ocean Color Sensor to Analyze the Coastal Optical Variability authored by Dr. Marco Bracaglia and others at CNR ISMAR, might be of interest to the Water Quality Community deliberating Analysis Ready Data. This work was carried out as part of Marco’s doctoral thesis, where he created an hyper-temporal analysis-ready Ocean Color (OC) dataset, named Virtual Geostationary Ocean Color Sensor (VGOCS). This dataset contains the observations acquired over the North Adriatic Sea by the currently functioning near-polar orbiting sensors, allowing approaching the geostationary sensor temporal resolution. The VGOCS dataset is defined as an analysis-ready dataset as it is conceived to provide to users, without the expertise in pre-processing procedures, “ready to use” OC data to analyze the coastal optical variability at the high temporal resolution, similarly to the CEOS Analysis Ready Data for Land (CARD4L).
