Chlorophyll-a, Orbview-2 SeaWiFS, R2014.0, 0.1°, Global, 1997-2010 (8 Day Composite) DEPRECATED, Lon0360

Metadata Updated: June 10, 2023

THIS VERSION IS DEPRECATED. SEE THE NEW R2018.0 VERSION IN erdSW2018chla8day. (Feb 2018)

NASA GSFC Ocean Color Web distributes science-quality chlorophyll-a concentration data from the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) on the Orbview-2 satellite. This version is the 2014.0 Reprocessing (R2014.0).

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.
