Summary
Abstract: This dataset represents spatial aggregates of a variable number of granules of the MODIS Ocean standard level 2 products that cover the Gulf of Maine. Each product is an 8-day composite, which was derived as the average data value for the 8-day period. If data quality is poor on particular days, the average was derived only from those days having good data. Files containing the number of days ... View entire text

Description: The Coastal Ocean Observing Center at the University of New Hampshire has developed and implemented a system for monitoring the linked oceanic and estuarine ecosystem in our region. This monitoring system has the capability to detect changes in the ecosystem across multiple physical and trophic levels.
