Abstract. This work concerns the chlorophyll products based on Satellite Observation and disseminated in the frame of the Copernicus Marine Environmental Monitoring Service (CMEMS).

This work highlights the main advantages provided by the Copernicus Globcolour processor which is used to serve the CMEMS with a long time series from 1997 to present with level 3 & 4 products at Global level (4 km of spatial resolution) and for the Atlantic level 4 product (1 km).

It discusses the different ways to merge data coming from different sensors and it is shown that the GlobColour processor approach provide a better flexibility. At present, it is the only one CMEMS processor able to ingest the OLCI-S3A in the merged product (OLCI-S3A data are ingested in the operational CMEMS products since the April 2018 release).

Behind the merging, the flagging strategy to go from level 2 provided by spatial agencies to the level 3 CMEMS products is also discussed. A better spatial coverage is demonstrated, including the coastal area which is of particular interest for many users involved in the EU Water Framework and Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
