OrbView-2 Sea-Viewing WIde Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) Quasi-Analytical Algorithm (QAA) Global Mapped Data
Entry ID: SeaWiFS_L3m_QAA_2018

Abstract: The SeaWiFS instrument was launched by Orbital Sciences Corporation on the OrbView-2
(a.k.a. SeaStar) satellite in August 1997, and collected data from September 1997 until
the end of mission in December 2010. SeaWiFS had 8 spectral bands from 412 to 865 nm.
It collected global data at 4 km resolution, and local data (limited onboard storage
and direct broadcast) at 1 km. The mission and sensor were optimized for ocean color
measurements, with a local noon (descending) equator crossing time orbit, fore-and-aft
tilt capability, full dynamic range, and low polarization sensitivity.
