In situ data

Plot of data in situ data used by the POCO project

Number of points available in the flow-cytometry phytoplankton carbon estimates in the POCO dataset for potential satellite match ups.

One of the objectives of POCO is to gather a dataset that can be used to evaluate current and emerging algorithms for carbon pools in the ocean at the global scale. The final version of the dataset will contain quality controlled data of particulate organic Carbon (POC), phytoplankton carbon (<sub>Cphy</sub>) and dissolved organic Carbon (DOC) concentration. Currently several public datasets have been incorporated into POCO:

This dataset will be reviewed and enlarged with additional contributions during the life span of the POCO project. If you are a data originator and would like to collaborate with this initiative, please contact
