The Ocean Color component of the Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET-OC) supports ocean color related activities such as validation of satellite data products, assessment of atmospheric correction schemes and evaluation of bio-optical models, through globally distributed standardized measurements of water-leaving radiance and aerosol optical depth. In view of duly assisting the AERONET-OC data user community, this work: i. summarizes the latest investigations on a number of scientific issues related to above-water radiometry; ii. emphasizes the network expansion that from 2002 till the end of 2020 integrated 31 effective measurement sites; iii. shows the equivalence of data product accuracy across sites and time for measurements performed with different instrument series; iv. illustrates the variety of water types represented by the network sites ensuring validation activities across a diversity of observation conditions; and v. finally documents the availability of water-leaving radiance data corrected for bidirectional effects applying a method specifically developed for chlorophyll-a dominated waters and an alternative one likely suitable for any water type.
