Request for public input to the comprehensive NASA/IOCCG-sponsored Aquatic Primary Productivity Field Protocol for Satellite Validation and Model Synthesis, which was recently posted on the IOCCG website for a 90-day community feedback period. This document is the product of a three-year effort with the objective to produce community consensus protocols for aquatic primary productivity appropriate for satellite algorithm development and validation. The hope is that the protocols presented here can be widely adopted by the scientific community engaged in ocean carbon research, particularly those in activities that support ocean color validation.
We are trying to spread the word beyond just the IOCCG community, since the methods covered here are expansive and relevant to the larger oceanographic community. We would be very grateful if you would be willing to distribute it among the OCB community via your mailing list and any other appropriate outreach channels.
