OLCI Chlorophyll from OCSSW

This is just to confirm (again) that OLCI processing in SeaDAS uses OC4 algorithm by default for Ch-a calculations.
Thank you.

As with *most* sensors supported by l2gen, the chlor_a product is a blend of the Hu et al., and OCx algorithms. See https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/atbd/chlor_a/
Yes, for OLCI, the OCx part would be OC4.
