Times Series of Phytoplankton Biomass Distribution over the Northwestern Pacific Area by Monthly Composite Images from Nimbus-7 CZCS Data (CD-ROM)
Entry ID: NIES_CGER_PHYTOPL_MONTHLY_CZCS


Summary
Abstract: This CD-ROM contains monthly composite images of phytoplankton pigment
concentrations in the North Western Pacific from December 1978 through
June 1986, derived from about 4,000 scenes of Coastal Zone Color
Scanner (CZCS) data. Also included are associated images of the
spectral radiance arising from the ocean body and atmosphere. These
images convey information of temporal and spatial variability in
marine biological/chemical processes such as the nutrient /primary
production relation, as well as information of aerosol particle
concentrations that may affect the oceanic processes.
