Description:
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 composites of SeaWiFS satellite data provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center and GeoEye in the form of HDF files at a resolution of 5 arc-minutes (approximately 9 x 9 km at the equator). The source files are true-color images generated from sub-sampled, calibrated, Rayleigh-corrected level-2 data, which are derived from raw radiance counts by applying sensor calibration, atmospheric corrections, and bio-optical algorithms. To arrive at chlorophyll-a concentrations, radiance counts were converted using the conversion formula provided as part of the original data files. The gridding is done by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN). The data in ArcGIS GRID and Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) and American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) formats are available from the from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC). 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.
