Multi-sensor 9 km ocean color products are now available on the data portal and ERDDAP. These global gap-free data come from 3 instruments: the VIIRS sensor aboard both SNPP and NOAA-20, plus the OLCI on Sentinel 3A. The OLCI Level-1B data are from EUMETSAT, and VIIRS Level-1B data are provided by NOAA, JPSS. The NOAA/STAR Ocean Color Team then produce the chlorophyll, light attenuation (downwelling) at 490 nm (Kd490), and Suspended Particulate Material (SPM) analysis products on a ~10 day delay.
