Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Material, Aqua MODIS, NPP, East US, 2002-2012 (Monthly Composite)

Metadata Updated: June 10, 2023

MODIS data is used to develop an index of the amount of chromophoric dissolved organic material (CDOM) in the surface waters. CDOM absorbs heavily in the blue wavelengths and thus can skew many derived products, especially in coastal waters. THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL PRODUCT: intended strictly for scientific evaluation by professional marine scientists.
