Abstract: This data set consists of satellite measurements of global ocean color and sea
surface temperature (SST) data obtained by the Moderate Resolution Imaging
Spectroradiometer (MODIS), in orbit on the Aqua (formerly EOS PM) platform.
MODIS ocean color and SST products are processed and distributed by the Ocean
Biology Processing Group (OBPG). MODIS Aqua processing details can be found at
