The goal of the breakout sessions was to develop concrete outputs that represent a synthesis of what our community needs in order to carry out state-of-the-art research and applications using ocean colour remote sensing. The breakout sessions (2.5 hours each) complemented the formal scientific program, and provided an opportunity for extended dialogue and exchange of ideas on specific topics. A total of 10 breakout sessions (3 to 4 parallel sessions at one time) were conducted covering a wide range of topics.
