BELCOLOUR-2 (BELSPO/STEREO, 2007-2011)

The objective of the BELCOLOUR-2 project was to further improve the quality of existing optical remote sensing products for marine, coastal and inland waters and to develop innovative products including primary production and partial pressure of CO2 for key applications such as aquaculture and air-sea CO2 fluxes. This project has now ended.
