Ozone and mean Chlorophyll a Data collected for regions of the Southern Ocean from 1997-2000 for an honours project in ASAC project 2210Entry ID: ASAC_2210_Honours_Cadman
Abstract: This study employs data from two satellite-borne instruments namely, the Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) and the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS).
This work was completed as part of an honours project under ASAC project 2210 (UV climate over the Southern Ocean south of Australia, and its biological impact).
Further information about the project is available in the word document available for download (extract from the honours thesis).
The fields in this dataset are:
Day (Julian Day)
Pixels (number of cloud free pixels from SeaWiFS sensor that were available for analysis)
Mean Chlorophyll (milligrams per cubic metre) (derived from cloud free pixels) Standard Deviation
Ozone (dobson units) from the TOMS sensor (average for whole region).

Quality Dates provided in temporal coverage are approximate only. Years are correct.
Mean chlorophyll figures were derived by averaging chlorophyll concentrations from the cloud-free pixels for each region. The number of cloud free pixels used in the calculation are presented in the downloadable spreadsheet.
