Summary
Abstract: The Annual Chlorophyll-a Concentrations component of the Indicators of Coastal Water Quality Collection consists of gridded satellite measurements of chlorophyll-a concentrations (in nanogram/cubic meter) in a band extending between 10 and 100 km from the shoreline. Chlorophyll-a concentrations are derived from NASA's Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS). The grids are based on annual ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a gridded version of existing SeaWiFS data in GIS-compatible formats in order to determine concentrations of chlorophyll-a in the coastal water column and to facilitate the integration with other data.
