Second International
Ocean Colour Science Meeting
San Francisco, USA, 15-18 June 2015

The second International Ocean Colour Science (IOCS) meeting took place from 15 to 18 June 2015 (San Francisco, USA) and was convened by the International Ocean Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG), with sponsorship from NASA, NOAA, EUMETSAT, ESA and CNES and the Moore Foundation. This was the second in a series of IOCS meetings (scheduled to take place every two years) with the overarching theme of “Applications of Ocean Colour from Climate to Water Quality”. The goal of these biennial IOCS meetings is to build a strong global user community for ocean colour science and applications, and to foster exchange between the research community and space agency representatives.
