The Copernicus Marine service is a “one-stop-shop” providing freely available operational data on the state of the marine environment for use by marine managers, advisors, and scientists, as well as intermediate and end users in marine businesses and operations. The Copernicus Marine service offers operationally updated and state-of-the-art products that are well documented and transparent. The European Commission’s long-term commitment to the Copernicus program offers long-term visibility and stability of the Copernicus Marine products. Furthermore, Copernicus Marine offers a dedicated service desk, in addition to training sessions and workshops.

Here, we present the in situ biogeochemical data products distributed by the Copernicus Marine System since 2018. It offers available data of chlorophyll-a, oxygen, and nutrients collected across the globe. These products integrate observation aggregated from the Regional EuroGOOS consortium (Arctic-ROOS, BOOS, NOOS, IBI-ROOS, MONGOOS) and Black Sea GOOS as well as from SeaDataNet2 National Data Centers (NODCs) and JCOMM global systems (Argo, GOSUD, OceanSITES, GTSPP, DBCP) and the Global telecommunication system (GTS) used by the Met Offices.

The in situ Near Real Time biogeochemical product is updated every month whereas the reprocessed product is updated two times per year. Products are delivered on NetCDF4 format compliant with the CF1.7 standard and well-documented quality control procedures.
