New applications on global-scale plankton retrievals using the CALIOP (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with orthogonal Polarization) lidar measurements on the CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations) satellite recently suggested that space-based lidars could provide information about the depth distribution of optical scattering. Assessing the oceanic surface layer’s optical properties through CALIOP is one of the reasons of the extension of the CALIOP mission for another 3 years (2018-2020). The objective of this work is the evaluation of the potential CALIOP ocean products in the Mediterranean and Black seas using the ocean color products provided by the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Systems (CMEMS).
