Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Ocean Colour Essential Climate Variable (ECV)

Telespazio UK has been involved in ESA’s Climate Change Initiative (CCI), from the beginning of the initial programme in 2010. The CCI Essential Climate Variable (ECV) Ocean Colour Test aims to help build a detailed historical model of Ocean Colour and how it may be linked to changes in the Earth’s climate.

Telespazio UK has led the highly successful Ocean Colour project through the early phases of the programme (2010-2017) and positioned it for further funding under the CCI+ programme. Telespazio UK had the primary role of Project Manager alongside the provision of Systems Engineering, a key aspect of which is the Data Access and Long Term Data Preservation aspects for the ECVs, and User Requirements capture expertise including responding to queries and community engagement.
