As operational oceanography grows scientifically and expands as a practical discipline, the demand has been growing for data and information relevant to understanding the marine ecosystem at the global level, unravelling the functions of the marine ecosystem in a changing climate, and contributing to sustainable management of marine resources. As the importance of an ecosystem-based approach to the stewardship of the oceans is being increasingly recognised, opportunities are emerging for observing the ocean ecosystem at unprecedented resolution at the global scale, in a systematic and sustained manner, using satellite data. At the same time, it is well-recognised that combining satellite data with in situ observations in a judicial manner allows extension of applications to domains inaccessible by either method in isolation. In this context, there is a need for establishing a network of observations that relies on existing technology and well-established methods for making the measurements. The approach has to be simple and fast, to allow routine measurements over long time scales, and not to exclude some countries from participating, on the basis of high technological requirements or high operational costs.
