Net primary productivity (NPP) and associated parameters for the U.S. outer continental shelf waters, 1998-2009 (NODC Accession 0071184)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This accession consists of monthly net primary productivity (NPP) estimates for 1998-2009 derived from the Vertically Generalized Production Model (VGPM) for the 26 Outer Continental Shelf planning areas in the United States, produced by CSA International, Inc. (CSA) under contract to the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement. The NPP data are provided as GeoTIFF files depicting global gridded monthly NPP estimates. Summary NPP statistics for each of the 26 planning areas are also provided as separate ASCII text files.

Input data sets used in the VGPM were also provided by CSA and present in this accession. These input data sets include global monthly sea surface temperature from the AVHRR Pathfinder Version 5.0 data set, global photosynthetically available radiation (par) and chlorophyll-a concentration data from the SeaWiFS and MODIS instruments, and global climatological monthly mean photoperiod data. These input data sets are provided in HDF4, with the exception of the photoperiod data which is provided in binary format.
